    I'm having a trip to Orlando next year, and I really wanted to buy a macbook. I'm college student in Brazil, and I was wondering if I could have the education pricing.
    I don't have an internacional student card, but I have one card from my university...

    You can use the Apple Education store for your country: http://store.apple.com/br-hed

    If you try to access the U.S. Apple Education store, you wouldn't be able to select your school. As to whether you can walk into a store and get the discount, you'd have to check with that store.

    If the prices weren't absurd, I'd buy it here.
    Buying a macbook in Brazil is about 2500 dollars!
    :(

    Carol, i'm Brazilian too.

    You can only use the discount if you buy it in Brazil. If you plan to buy in the US you need to be student there in US. At least that was what they told me in 2013 when I bought my rMBP. And I tried it in some different stores.

    Hopefully they changed it, but I don't think so. Bring you Student ID and PASSPORT to a store and try.

    Boa sorte ;)

    I have a friend that works at Apple and she told me yes you need to be enrolled in a school here in the US. Even at the store, because they have to choose from a list of universities here in the US that you would be enrolled in. Maybe some stores can make an exception, although I've never heard of it, it could be possible.

    Good luck!

    I think you need to be enrolled in a school in the US.
