    " According to the comments, Educational institution pricing is still $69, so individual universities may resell Leopard to students/faculty for this discounted price."

    How do i get this? Im a bit confused in this, i know educational discount is around 110. How dose the $69 pricing work?

    Thanks

    You need to be able to purchase for an academic department/institution in order to get that price.

    If you work for a department then you could get the person in charge of purchasing to order it for the department.

    The computer store here on campus sent out a notice yesterday saying that the price in the store would be $69. That's as far as I know for sure, but I assume universities with good relationships to their local Apple Exec are able to get deals on products pretty easily. I know there's already some other stuff in the store discounted below the normal academic pricing.

    Yep, some universities will sell it for $69 - others $116. The range can apply to departments and/or students -- it all depends on the school.

    Apple will sell it in stores and online to EDU folks for $116.

    Surely that means any school who sells Leopard in its campus store should be able to resell at $69 then doesn't it?

    Yes, but mine doesn't.

    I could ask licensing why if you really wanted to know.

    If you are attending a University you go to your university book/computer store and buy leopard there. Mine is re-selling it a $89. Picking it up at 6.
