    I'm just wondering how the student verification works. I've heard you have to fax a transcript to them, is that so?
    I plan on buying one this summer so would they take last semesters transcript?

    You will have to send them your current/upcoming enrollment schedule. I don't think a past enrollment will work.

    ? Not sure what ADC stands for but if your talking about buying an apple with the student discount from the apple store I didn't have to send any information. I just bought and chose my school from the drop down.

    Its apple developer connection for students, its a program which requires you to pay a one time fee of 99$, for a once in a lifetime 20% discount. But it requires you to actually prove your a student, by faxing in a transcript I believe.

    I just signed up for my ADC about a month ago. After I faxed the info it took about 2 days to become a member. The process was simple, do the following:

    After you purchase an ADC Student Membership and receive an Activation Code via email, you must verify your student status before ADC will activate your product. The verification steps are:

    Visit the ADC Member Site to confirm that you are a student in your ADC Profile. After you click the Student Status checkbox, you must also provide your student ID number and school name.

    Proceed to the Activations area in the ADC Member Site and use the Code you received via email to start the Activation process.

    EDIT : I faxed my license and a printout of my upcoming classes.

    Fax a copy of your passport or other official identification (such as a driver’s license or student identification) along with a current or upcoming course schedule or other official proof of enrollment from your college/university.

    North America: 1-408-974-7683
    Europe: 44 (0) 131-458-6988
    Australia: 61 2-8223-9347
    Hong Kong: 800-908-212
    Japan: 81-3-3570-8075
    Singapore: 1-800-2775-3248

    Simple and fast, but for now I just bought a refurb macbook. Going to save up for a 17" Macpro and purchase before my year is up(hopefully they will include a new cpu).

    EDIT : My fax included my license and a printout of my upcoming classes.

    how does ACD work? You pay a onetime fee of $99 and receive 20% off for the rest of your life, or just one time (like a 20% off voucher)? Havent caught wind of this before...

    You pay the money to become a developer and you get a one time discount of 20%. That's all.

    ALL University students in the UK get a discount of 17% anyway plus free AppleCare. Not sure what the point of joining ADC is then.

    A 20% discount off the following years $99 ACD membership, or anything you want to buy in the Apple Store?

    99 a year, the hardware purchase is 1 time for life. I think if you want other hardware you have to bundle it with your computer purchase. Every computer is not discounted the same, not worth getting unless you want a MBP or Macpro.
    MBP starts - 1599
    Mac Pro Starts - 1999
