Ill begin saying I'm a noob to Macs, and this forum. Also I'm British. All of which you will be able to tell in this thread. I will attend University in Sept 08 (Doing Graphic Design at Teeside) and for the past several months i've been waiting for the new MBP updates so I can get the top model. My current PC is dying and it's now getting to the point I can't run all my favourite programs at once (& yes i'm pretty good with cleaning my PC) so I want to purchase a top end MBP (with extra ram which ill add myself) to last me from now to the end of University. Well WOOT the new MBP Pros are out! But 2 problems have appeared and I seek some advice from people who know what they're talking about. Problem 1 is that I spoke to a Apple Admin (or w.e) on the website chat. She said I cannot receive the student discount until im 'registered with the university'. I explained I have been accepted for my course (and place it as firm choice) but she insisted I can only receive the discount only when I begin my university course. My cousin just Messaged me saying 'people who have been accepted into a higher education institute are also applicable for the discount'. Im sure theres a simple answer to this- but how do I proove Im applicable for the discount? (I'm talking about the 16% discount not the 8% one) Problem 2 - Theres rumours of ANOTHER MBP update in June. This time rumours of a redesign? The question is, do you think/know the specs will be improoved without the price being highered? My problem is that I'm not sure if its worth waiting until June with this dying PC then get more for my money because I don't goto univeristy until September. I know there is no clear cut answer, but any advice would be appreiciated. Take into account im spending around £1800-£2000 on this MBP. Thanks!
