    I noticed lately that Apple sells the five professional applications (Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4 and MainStage 3) as a bundle in education price. I don't understand well how the payment through Apple's site will be used in the App Store to obtain the discount. Has anyone experience with such purchasing?

    Also, will future updates be available or do the bundle applications stay locked to their versions at buying time?

    Thanks!

    I got it. It’s in the educational store. You need a school (.edu) email address. Download codes are sent there. I’m not sure about major versions, but I’ve gotten one minor update since.

    Cool, thanks. I do not live in the U.S.A. but the educational store is available in my country. So I guess all I need is an academic e-mail address valid in my country, right?

    I believe in the UK at least this is unavailable. We use VPP/ASM and were unable to obtain via the Mac App Store or any other way indeed in the UK. Such a shame as its a good value deal.
