I'm about to buy a new computer and Apple's ADC Discount seems like it might be a good idea. I think it would be cool to learn a little bit more about developing from this, but the main focus is price. I have a couple questions that I though I might find answers to from the Macrumors community. Verifying my status: I don't yet have a Student ID or schedule, as I'm going to be a freshman in the fall. I am 18, can I just sent them any letter Northwestern has sent me? The website just says it has to prove your enrollment, but I would like some clarification on this. Purchasing: Could I buy from my local Apple Store, or does it have to be online? This isn't a big deal, but I would prefer to go to Woodfield and pick it up personally.
