    I have educational discount but i don't know if i can buy 1 MacBook today and another at November.
    I know the rules: 1 mac, 1mini,1macbook and 2 ipod for year.

    The question is: what mean Apple for Year?
    Annual year (since January until December)
    Academic year (since September/October until august?)

    That information is easy to find at the Apple web site.
    According to this Apple support page :
    I hope that answers your question.

    Sorry, I don't like answering a question with another question - but - What is your interpretation of "academic school year"?

    I have no idea what your local situation may be.

    My own opinion (for what that is worth :D), the academic school year is that 12-month period during which funding for a particular school year is active. In my state, that period is July 1 to Jun 30 of the following year.
    If that is correct in your location, then Apple would tell you that you can't buy two Macbooks in the same year.
    And, Apple makes that determination (not me, apparently :D)
    You may even get a relevant answer if you call your local school district office. They may not know about Apple, but they WILL know what time period covers the "academic school year" (hint: it is for 12 months, not 9 months.) You just have to find out when it begins and ends.

    I bet that as a school employee, you already know the answer.
