    Typically no. I am sure this time is no different.

    Nope and you need to be a student as well, i.e., not buying the computer through the normal apple store.

    I am pretty sure that the answer to the OP's query is a resounding "No". Students get offered discounts and iPods; refurbs are a different category & market, where your status does not affect the nature of your purchase - as it would in order to be able to avail of the student discount - anyone, irrespective of status, occupation, age, etc can buy a refurb.

    Cheers and good luck

    If you can float the money up front, you'd probably make out better buying in the store with the iPod and printer. Think of it this way:

    (Mac - discount) + printer + iPod - (cost of printer on eBay) = net price.
