    I just bought a MacMini 2,5 GHz with discrete ATI card and I'm waiting it to be delivered home.

    I bought it online with Educational Discount (6%, here in Italy). I was expecting to also receive a 75 € coupon for "Back to School" but I didn't.
    Do you know if Am I eligible to receive it or not? I looked for some official email to address my question, but in vain... The Apple Store in my town (Bologna) is not yet open, how can I ask for information?

    In addition, I am wondering if I am allowed to install the new Mac OS X 10.7 to my MacBook Pro 2010 since a Lion license comes with the MacMini I just bought and licensor you are allowed to install their Lion over all their machines...
    If so, how to do it? Is there any simple procedure or shall I clone the HDD content to my MBP drive?

    Only the version of Lion bought from the Mac App Store can be put on all the user's Macs. The versions that come with the 2011 Mini's and Air's are limited to only the Macs it comes with.

    Mac Mini's are not eligible for the BTS Program. Nor are Mac Pro's.

    Ring them up and ask, last year my friend bought a mac mini and added the ipod touch to his checkout too and recieved both. But then he realised they wernt giving him the rebate for the touch... and found it the mac mini wasnt part of the deal...

    So he rang them up and explained the situation and they actually gave him the rebate!

    Pretty impressive
