    I know the new iMac is not yet available for pre-order. However, the Apple online shop shows a price for the standard version. When I go to the education store, the prices for the iMacs remain the same. Is this just some bug, or will there really be no discounts for the new iMac?

    This is for the danish store. Maybe it is different in other stores.

    I'm seeing a price reduction across the board on my educational discount as well.

    What I'm not seeing is a price reduction on my EPP employee discount. Very odd.

    In the UK here, Scotland, and I see no discount for the iMac on the Education store logging in from my work. Starting price is £1099, everything else on the store is reduced as normal though.

    I need to order two of these as soon as they are available too.

    In Sweden students get 10% discount on all Apple computers.

    They sent out an e-mail reminder about this right after the presentation was over giving the price points for the various new products and how much it would cost with discount.

    I see a student discount when logged onto the apple store through my university network. Have to be on campus to do it though. In England.

    MBP and Mac Mini both discounted if logged into the education section.

    No discount showing up on the iMacs.

    (UK)

    Maybe the discount only shows on items you can order and the iMac's discount will show in November/December.

    Can't see discounts on the iMac from a german university either.

    Other discounts are shown (e.g. macmini)

    Maybe they will add the discounts once you can order imacs?

    I wouldn't worry until it is possible to put it in the cart and pre-order.

    It is not comparing like for like - as the other products you can buy today and add to cart.

    I would be v surprised if they didn't give educational discounts considering how many unis/schools buy them.

    I think we need to wait until it is available. Nothing to worry about, all the other ones are available which have discount.

    I just called Apple Denmark, and they confirmed there will be discount once it becomes available. I also asked about when it will be released, and she said late November... She had no date, but unfortunately we should not expect it in the coming weeks...

    I wonder if when you can order the 21.5" you can pre-order the 27".

    If that isn't possible, Apple's store page might look a little weird.

    UK discounts now showing

    The UK AppleStore for Higher Education is now showing educational discounts on the 2012 iMac. The discount is 12%, the same as the previous iMacs.

    Hopefully the BTO and pre-orders might now go live soon?

    I think it just depends on the store. The Japanese store has shown the discount from the time the machines were announced.

    Educational Pricing

    Hi, I am a newbie here in this forum. I have used a lot of iOs devices and would like to switch form Windows to Mac. I would like to ask though, is there any difference (beside the price of course) if ill purchase my mac in a regular price and purchasing it with an educ'l price?

    The Mac will be identical. In the UK the HE Macs also come with a three year repair warranty i.e. you effectively get AppleCare for free.

    In Italy Edu are 1954€ instead of 2079.
    I'd be rather more on how much the 680m is...
    200-300€ more?
