I saw this post in the new Macbook Pro discussion thread and I replied to it but it is getting buried in a MBP vs. iMac debate. I figured it would be better to just post my message here since this is where it should be. This will be my first Mac and I want to make sure I get the best deal possible on it. Do I have to buy the ADC student membership separately, and then go back and buy the laptop? Or will I be able to buy everything at once? Will I get a bigger discount on apple care using the ADC discount? Also, my school is offering a free iPod shuffle if I buy a laptop with applecare, so this might work out better for me. If I want an iPod later I could just buy one from the store I work at and I can get 10% off of it. So I should be able to come out ahead still. What accessories should I buy for the laptop? I am going to get a case for sure, but would I need anything else? Should I go with the glossy or antiglare screen? I will be using the MBP to play video games, use the internet, and watch movies. There will be some other things I'll be using it for as well, but these are the biggest. and lastly, I will for sure be able to get the free leopard upgrade if I use the ADC student discount? If I use a regular education discount I won't be able to get leopard for free correct? Thats all I can think of for right now, thanks for any help at all! Also, if you have anything you'd like to add in that will help me I would appreciate that as well!
