    I think its the student developer discount. It's a $99 yearly membership fee, and you get a heavy discount on computers... only like once though, heh.

    so you have to pay a fee to get the discount.....in which case once you pay it then you probably wont be saving much more the the regular student discount.....I knew there was a catch

    On the "i" line the discount is ok (if you are a student, you will usually at least save the $99 you paid and probably a little more), but man, on the "power" line, it is totally worth it. I remember when the superdrive Ti came out, the top of the line was $3000 and Apple was offering the double your ram for free upgrade - I configured a 1 ghz superdrive Ti with 1 gig of ram that was $2300 at the developer store. Totally awesome.

    I think for non-students, you can pay $600 to join the developer connection and get the discounts too, and I think that you can use it more than once (I'm not totally positive though).

    what about those other auctions (by a similar guy, perhaps?) that have 'information' for free cameras and such...?
    I think I saw one for a free ipod....

    They require you to open a "business" and request free product samples. It's lame.
