    I am eligible for the Apple Education Discount. I want to buy a Macbook as a gift for someone. Would it be OK for me to use the discount in this situation?

    I don't think you can but apple isnt going to stop you.

    Have you considered amazon and their prices?

    It's legal if you are the student's parent.

    EDIT: Oh, I get it. You are a student. Yeah, like Eidorian said, I think you can buy it and then give it to your friend. You just couldn't buy another computer of the same type for a year.

    My memory is fading but...

    I remember a mention ages ago here on MacRumors that Apple doesn't really care what the student does after they buy the computer for themselves.

    I'm sure you could sell it after it's in your possession.

    Take into account it'll count against your discount purchases per year though.
