    Just went to order my MBP from here: http://store.apple.com/uk_edu_78186

    And it appears the site has gone down!!! :eek:

    Anyone got another link I can access the HE store with? Many thanks.

    As far as I know you have to provide proof, so unless you are from that uni or any other uni it won't work.

    I use this to look at the prices though

    http://store.apple.com/uk_edu_5000724?mco=MTE2MjI

    I don't go there but I haven't been to my uni yet to get a code.

    The HE Apple Discount is available through the NUS Extra site for upto 15% off.

    If you have the NUS extra card (Which you really should get as the discounts are well worth it), go to the NUS site and log into your NUS account. Click on discounts, and go to the last page and select the HE Apple student discount.

    Once you go through that link, Apple doesn't ask for any further proof of student status, so is well worth a look.

    Just curious, but why not just access the store from within the University network or call Apple to place the order? Either way you'll be able to get the Higher Education discount (provided you're a student of course)

    Do you know how much you get off iMac with the NUS cards? Is it the same as the HE discount? Reason Im asking is I recently purchased an i5 27' iMac and I only got 12% off!

    If contact Apple, it can give you a temporary URL to give access from home.

    I presume you have a NUS card because you're in college? You only get 11%/12% off when you're in college (Further Education (FE)) and about 14/15% in HE.

    The discount is not specified. It depends on what product you buy. Highest discount I've ever got is 20% for HE.

    I thinks its pretty much the same, looking at the prices that were posted posted by others on your earlier thread.

    Still for comparisons sake here are the prices I'm seeing from the NUS EXTRA HE Link

    21.5-inch: 3.06GHz - £834.90

    21.5-inch: 3.06GHz - £1,055.70

    27-inch: 3.06GHz - £1,186.80

    27-inch iMac with Quad-core: 2.66GHz - £1,407.60

    Couple of screen grabs from the store
