    Does anyone know whether it's possible to buy a MBP online, but collect in-store? I want to order online to take advantage of my HE Education discount and 3yr complimentary warranty, but don't want to wait for delivery :)

    You can buy in-store with your Education discount. You can't order online and pick up at the store.

    Not sure what UK rules are. You should call Apple and ask :)

    Yeah I know I can get the Education discount in-store, but I can't get the 3yr complimentary warranty if I buy in-store

    You can "Reserve and Pickup" though. To get the UK warranty you may have to order online, in which case your decision is easy.

    True. For that, you have to let them ship it to you.

    Bummer :(

    Got money burning a hole in my pocket (bank account), and am within walking distance of Apple Store! Would have to wait until after the weekend to take delivery if I order online

    Patience is not my strong point...

    Dude i feel you here. :)
    Just order it online and wait till you get it. Its so much fun that day it comes and opening the box, i wish i could do it every week :p

    If you want, its only a few extra bucks for the 2-3 day shipping, so youll get it sooner :D

    If you could do it every week, it wouldn't be the same.
