Hi, I'm in the UK but might buy a Macbook Air while on holiday in the US this summer due to the lower price. I can get the educational discount (though appreciate I'm taking my chances whether the US store will accept the UK education ID, but from reading other posts it seems they're relaxed about that). So in order to compare US and UK prices I'd also need to know how the eductional discounts compare. As far as I've seen so far, the discount is much less attractive in the US which would eat into the US price advantage. 1) Is it correct that the US educational discount is only in the neighbourhood of around $50? (In the UK it's around 14% (or around £170 for the MBA I'm looking at) 2) Is it correct that Applecare in the US even with educational discount is still around $200 (I saw $183 for the MBA)? (In the UK it's £47 for the MBA with educational discount) 3) If 2) is correct, would it be possible to buy the MBA in the US without Applecare and then upon return to the UK would the UK store still sell me Applecare at £47 or would they want to see a UK receipt for the computer? Many thanks for your help!
