Hey, I thought that this might be of interest to some of you. I paid for a Student ADC Membership which came to £65. I then rang up and found out what the ADC pricing was for the MacPro and compared this to the usual student discount. I specified the base model with the following adjustments: ATI Geforce 8800 500 GB Built it (instead of 320GB) Airport 2 x 23" ACD Screens AppleCare (much cheaper on Student store, than ADC) NORMAL pricing: £3356 STUDENT pricing: £2764 ADC pricing: £2853 So the student pricing for this is actually cheaper, but we worked out that this only because of the AppleCare which is heavily discounted for students, but remains at standard pricing on the ADC store. If you're interested in joining the ADC, it's a great discount on usual prices, but if you're a student already, and you want AppleCare, you would be better going through the usual student store.
