    Hi, this Sunday, October 28th, I will be going to to Apple Store near me to purchase a new 24" 2.4GHz iMac. I have a few questions about my purchase.

    1) Will the student discount still apply, and how to do that in store?
    2) Should the iMac include Leopard, or do I have to pay extra?
    3) Do I have to pay the full price of the wireless keyboard and mouse if I get them there? I know its considered a BTO on the website, but it really isn't doing much change to the actual computer.

    Thank you!

    1. The discount applies in-store. Bring your student ID.
    2. A Mac sold that day will include Leopard.
    3. You'll have to pay full price.

    1) you just need to be able to show them a school id, or failing that, log into your school's account and show them a schedule with your name on it.

    2) yes

    3) no idea.

    1) Yes, they look at your student ID. you do have one right?
    2) Should be included, if not they should just give it to ya considering Leopard is being released that Friday.
    3) No, if there's a discount on the KB and Mouse you'll get student pricing. Full price

    I'll just order it online then and save the $90, but when should I order to be sure Leopard is thrown in?

    Order after 6pm on the 26th to be sure.

    According to our Apple Rep, we will *not* be getting drop-in discs for our existing stock, the upgrade would have to be done through the "up-to-date" program on-line and will have to be done by the client.

    So can you get the Student discount + use iPhone credit when buying Leopard in-store on the 26th?

    I didn't even know you could use just a student ID to get student discounts in-store at an Apple Store.

    When I got my iMac I paid the exact same thing as it says on the net to get the wireless kb/mouse. You don't need to pay "full price" i.e. as if you were buying the kb/m separately.

    Hey there, I just got off "Chat Now" on the apple website with a customer representative. I asked if all student discount purchases would be tax-exempted for purchases made online. The individual replied me with "All student are subject to tax.". Now I'm just wondering did you have to fill out a tax-exemption form or request for one or is tax-exempted purchases only available in store??:confused:

    Any feedback on this subject would be appreciated. Thanks!~

    He/She said educators discount, not the student discount.

    about the wireless keyboard and mouse. Its exactly 50 dollars more than the regular wired version, atleast in my local store(fifth avenue).
    Pretty good deal if consider that the mouse is 69 and the keyboard is 79, separately.
