    Hi, I heard that Apple gives discounts for schools buying multiple Macs for the library or computer labs they give GREAT discounts. Also, the Apple store near me is getting rid of the old iMacs with Snow Leopard. How much could we get about 15 for? We could get probably up to 200 people to help raise money.
    Thanks.

    Depending on how many your buying, the discounts aren't that great. My university bought around 400 iMacs when I was there and they only gave 10% off.

    It's hard to get 400 refurbs en masse, but yeah.

    I don't know that buying mass orders of Macs from anyone other than Apple or an (extremely reputable) 3rd party retailer would be very wise, especially considering the computers being used.

    (Edit: wow, they deleted the previous post before I could even quote it! Good job to mods for spotting the spam) =)

    We just priced out getting new MacBooks for all the teachers at my school and the discount sucks. It's barely 10%, and our district buys hundreds of macs a year.
