What are the benefits of buying a Mac under the Educational?
The only thing I found beneficial was no tax. I paid the Apple website price w/o the 8.25% sales tax pretty much. They also offer Applecare for around $240 for students, which you can find on ebay for about that price.kimcheeboi65 said:What are the benefits of buying a Mac under the Educational?
This is especially true for software. I bought some software at another school. They offered the software at half (and some at a quarter) of the Apple edu price.Losium said:If you are going to buy a Mac using the education discount make sure you check the prices at your university first. At my school, UCF, you can get the ibook for 917 dollars as opposed to the 950 or so directly from apple.
Now I don't know if this is because my school's store is desperately trying to get rid of the ibooks, but eh, who knows.
