    Hello,

    So i just purchased the student developer package from the online apple store. But i haven't got a activation number. Do i have to send in my conformation of being a student for before they send that out. All i got was a e-mail with an order number. An the order doesn't even show up in my account. So do i just fax my conformation in.

    any help would be great

    cheers,
    Scott

    So you ordered the thing? Fax in your proof of identification and then Apple will ship you your Developer Connection box with a copy of Leopard and dev software (and a t-shirt!) and then you can use your ADC store discount.

    It's been forever. Are you needing an activation number? I don't remember one, but it was probably e-mailed to me.

    Tallest,
    The ADC Student does not get a mailed box like Select and Premier. Once you are activated you can download your disk.


    You will receive in email probably in a couple hours/tomorrow with your activation number. Fax in a copy of your Student ID and current or upcoming shedule. For a faster way, scan and email it to devprograms@apple.com and call them up. They will look at it and activate it with you on the phone.

    I have a box on my desk labelled Student that begs to differ. It came with Leopard and a disk of development SDKs and apps.

    You can do either. Fax takes longer for them to go through.


    As per email I received,


    The disk for Student is now only online - and not mailed.

    SCORE! I totally got a box!

    I'm sure curious why they still advertise the box on the developer site, though...

    Lucky! :)

    Not sure - but Apple doesn't always remember to update all their pages and pictures.

    Hello,

    So i faxed in my conformation of a student on Thursday. I was just wondering how do you know when u can order with the hardware discount, and where do you go to order it. Is there somewhere that you have to login so that u can get the discounts?

    Cheers,
    Scott

    The discount yes, (20%) and its only really worth it if your spending more than $2000.

    I am sorry i keep asking question, but i find this is the best place to get answers. With the student developer package you get a download of a mac OS. Can you download that anytime within that year?
