    Typically Apple does not carry custom order computers in their stores. And if you were to buy it in store they ask you to show your student ID card to prove you are a student. Personally I'd get the 250GB hard drive and spend the money you saved on an external hard drive instead.

    Whether you want the 250 or 320 is up to you; do you have a lot of media that you need to store? 320 is a BTO option and will not be available in the store; it is also a very simple replacement and you could do it yourself to save the dough. If you buy in store, you will be required to furnish a photo-id from your uni; if you buy online they randomly request verification (though much more often during the back-to-school promo due to higher amounts of fraud).

    I have ~15 000 songs and dozens of movies. Internal HD will always be too small, that's why I have 3 external. Get 250GB and 1TB external

    I mean currently, I doubt you would fill up the 250GB, unless they are ripped in some sort of lossless and hi-def.

    never pay apple exorbitant amounts of money to get a bigger hard drive. If you're really concerned about space buy a 500 gb hard drive online for 90 bucks.


    and for the discount, just bring your college id and you should be good. If not, your college email account info should be enough.

    There is senuti, although it is shareware. The trial allows you to transfer 1000 songs though.
