    If so...
    1.) Why did you original purchase it?
    2.) Would you purchase again knowing what you know now?
    3.) What's your favorite part about it.
    4.) Do you renew it every year or was it a one time deal?

    Thanks, I'm thinking of getting it since I will be purchasing a 17" MPB and the discount alone will cover the cost.

    I had one before, mainly to get my hands on the Leopard beta. But really you don't need it unless you absolutely need to be certain your app is compatible with the latest betas.

    I've got one. I think it is worth it. I'm just waiting for the new Mac Pros to come out for the hardware discount.

    If you are interested in following new technologies then it is also very interesting.

    What do members think of the iTunes videos and Coding Headstarts? Are they really helpful for someone starting out? I'm pretty new to programming and I could probably use all the help I could get. I might enroll just for all the videos (and a free copy of Snow Leopard when it comes out, and a hardware discount that I might use next year).

    It is not really designed for beginners. You would get much more out of reading the two books which are constantly recommended for beginners on this forum.

    I think I'm going to give it a try, it's free anyways. I'm purchasing a new macbook pro so by getting this I will actually save $60 plus get the membership for a year. I'm sure most of it I wont use but I will watch the video and read what there is online and maybe get a version of Snow Leopard out of it. :D

    From what I've heard to if you ask a question using your tickets the apple folks pretty much hand over code that does it which might come in handy. :)

    It is not free. ADC Select membership costs $499 a year.

    There is a free version but you don't get any of the benefits with it.

    It's free when you consider the HW discount.

    $2800 * 20% = $560 discount.
