    Can someone define "one academic year" for me?

    In the past, Apple has defined "one academic year" as July 1 to June 30.

    Awesome. So my MBP that I bought in June will count as last year, so when the new ones come out I can still get the discount.

    If those dates are correct then I don't think they are very strict about this rule since i've bought 2 notebooks this academic year using my HE discount...;). One around end of july and the other last week.

    I suspect that much like there's no security on OS X installation discs but you have to agree to the EULA, Apple hopes that people will be honest and respect the AGREEMENT they make when purchasing under the education discount guidelines. If the system is abused, Apple will take it away and no one will benefit.

    Yeah, they are not particularly strict. I thought it would be something like September - September (seeing as that's when the majority of us start an academic year).

    I bought a MacBook in June and I'm hoping I'll be able to get an MBP in January.
