    Will it go away in september?

    I know the free ipod deal is going away 9/8...But im interested in waiting until after september 9th for the possibly updated Macbook. Just curious to see if the education discount goes away until next summer.

    Year round, but there are limitations on how much you can buy in a year.

    The education discount is a permanent discount that Apple runs year round for students. However there is a limit to how much you can buy per year.

    Got ya. Thanks guys. Just curious...whats the limits?

    I bought my iMac a month or so ago and was planning on buying a Macbook or MBP depending on what happens in the next few weeks. Is that too much too soon? Shouldnt be in my book.

    Take advantage of it while you still can... The discounts get slimmer and slimmer every year. It is getting to the point where your employer might have a better deal with agreements through Apple, (i.e. Coca-Cola, USPS, etc.) than direct from Apple edu sales. On campus can still vary widely.
