    Hi all,


    I'm a student and right now i'm doing web design and development. As well as some music creation. And I plan on getting into 3D modeling and animation. As well as video editing.

    Right now i'm working with a power mac g4 that I have upgraded to the max and it is NOT getting the job done. I guess i've outgrown it. And now i'm ready to upgrade to the new Mac Pro.

    But as a student, my funds are sort of limited. Is it a good Idea to get the apple developer student discount vs the regular student discount. I know there is a seperate store just for developers also, does this store include the mac pro?

    Yes, it is worth getting. The store does have the Mac Pro. The quad 2.66 starts at $1,999 in the ADC store. Just wait til after Friday to enroll in the student ADC so you will get a copy of SL.

    Doesn't matter. If you're in student ADC you get a free copy of SL when it comes out.

    Oh okay, that's good. Is there an 8-core available also? I'm interested in buying that.

    Yep, there is an Octad available. It should be 25% off retail.

    You will. I did when I was a student developer. I don't know when the CD will arrive, but they'll mail it to you.

    Student developers don't get pre-release stuff, but they do get final release stuff.

    i would recommend getting a new macbook. It will save you LOTS of time and energy! How long did you have your macbook for?

    Discount depends on configuration. Mine was almost 30%.
