I just purchased a BTO iMac along with AppleCare using the Government discount website. I got substantial savings doing it this way. BTW, yes, I'm a government employee and retired military so I can legally use the site. All through the process and when I went to pickup the iMac at the Apple Store, nobody asked for my military ID. Does Apple even check? This is the second time I've done this and Apple never questioned me at all.
