    Hi i have a student id, but because ive never been abroad i dont have a passport, and i dont have any other photo i.d.

    im thinking about going into medowhall tomorrow i was just wondering if they would accept just my student i.d in order for me to get discount on a macbook pro.

    any help would be greatly appriciated

    I have shown just my N.U.S (Student Membership) card before and managed to get student discount.

    Failing that use the online Apple Education store for you college.

    Can't tell if you're a UK or USA student.

    If you're UK I had hassle when showing my student ID, they claimed I could've easily forged it and I needed more proof, I think they needed my course code and uni code. Which unlike a 'forged' Uni ID, can be easily got off the internet... Hypocrites :rolleyes:

    cheers for the help people,

    yeah im british

    its not exactly a student id well it is,

    its the card i take to gain entry into my exams, and also the card i use for the library, there is no photo but some people have a photo, my card has a box where the photo should be but no photo. Will i have trouble? and what esle could i use or easily get a hold of?

    if this fails my gf has a passport but she doesnt have a student id card, is there anything she can use from school other than a student id card?

    You can take a letter of introduction from your school.

    It depends on what you are going to use the machine for. It could be more beneficial to invest in an SSD.

    Unless you need lot's of storage space you should go for the SSD. But if you'd prefer bolstered performance when using high powered applications, the extra RAM should be yours.

    I bought my MBP in store and got the discount without showing any ID or proof. Just call me a BAMF.

    I was told that you could only get the edu discount online and they refused to give me the discount, even with a valid ID (USA).

    school id, school email/login, transcripts, letters etc. or u can go the easy route and buy it online. so easy to get a student discount through the apple.com site.
