iLife '08 is not $39 for student discount, so I was wondering what kind of price would Leopard be for a student.

I just called Apple and they told me it would be $69.

I still doubt it. Let's see.

its always been that price i don't see why they'd change it. but hopefully they won't.

i'd imagine the R&D/price ratio is tighter on iWork and iLife thus a much smaller discount.

If not, at the very least I imagine your campus bookstore would sell Leopard with an educational discount.

From what I know that's the right price. For the normal $79 iLife or iWork, it's only $39 for the student discount. For a new Mac OS X version, retail is $129 and student's version is $69.

I think what the OP is trying to get across is that iLife Edu used to be $49 (I think) and it is now $71, virtually negating the student discount, the apple rep says this trend wont be applied to Leopard, lets hope.

I was at my university's bookstore yesterday and they had iLife for $39 (but iWork wasn't available yet). While I was at Stanford University, one of my students told me they had iWork for $38 (but iLife wasn't available yet).

I would imagine that most universities (if not all) will keep the lower pricing.

I hope they keep it at $69. It's a steal and I just love being able to upgrade for so little. I paid $69 for Panther. I paid $69 for Tiger. Hopefully I'll pay $69 for Leopard.

I am totally peeved about the $71 iLife. Eight bucks off, big deal. I save almost no money and have to wait for the stupid thing to ship to my door in a few days.

I'll have to pop buy the Library when school starts in a few weeks - see if they have it $49.

You just bought Tiger when you know Leopard comes out in a few months? I hope you get your money's worth out of it.
He probably wont jump on the bandwagon so quickly. Let the first kinks get worked out and all, you know? :)

I wish I was still in school so I could take advantage of the discount pricing :(

order online via Educational Discount section.
I know that, but many bookstores even offer an additional discount. For example, Office 04 at my bookstore is 6 bucks. Windows XP is also 6 bucks (yay for when I get MBP with bootcamp)

Wow, only 6 bucks for Office?


I get XP for free through the MSDNAA program, the only out of pocket expense for a copy of XP is the cost of a CD-R to burn the image to :D I get Vista for free too, which is the ONLY reason I have that piece of trash installed in a Parallels VM. I would never pay for that garbage

It's weird that iWork is showing $71 EDU on Apple's site -- I got it for $50 at the Apple Store. I don't know if they manually changed the price or what, but the whole reason I bought it was because it was only $50.

My University sells software pretty cheap - but not $6 cheap. But then, I have a relative that works for Microsoft so I get all my MS software for free anyway.

Just purchased iWork 08' for $39 at the NYU computer store.
They have iLife 08' as well for the same price.
