i always buy from the HE apple store. i'm not a HE student (i get on via my girlfriend's mum and dad who work for a university), i'm only in FE but i'm going to university next year so i don't see anything wrong with it. you can only get on the HE discount store on a university network, but anyone can get on the normal 'Education' store. so, why doesn't everyone do this? do they track it or something? or check it if it needs to go in for repairs and what not? or is everyone just being moral?
