    Hey guys

    I was wondering if I could get the 100 dollar discount on the macbook and at the same time get the 8 gig ipod touch when I purchase a macbook online with their student discount.

    So what I am basically trying to ask is if the discount code is one or the other.

    thanks

    In order to take advantage of the free iPod touch offer, you MUST purchase through Apple's educational pricing program. So yes, you would both get the education discount ($100 or so) on the MacBook as well as the iPod rebate.

    thanks a lot of wildcowboy

    So what I want to know is that I am currently about to buy a macbook, but I am kinda short on money so I was thinking about buying macbook from craigslist for 650, but I was thinking since I already own a ipod touch, I could buy the macbook for essentially 750 dollars, after I sell the 8gb touch.

    What would you guys do?

    Then you can't get the student discount; it's for college students only.

    well, that depends on if they're in college. . like alphaod said, college students/faculty/parents of college kiddos can take advantage of this offer.

    keep two things in mind about the school offer: you have to pay for the iPod up front and wait for the rebate, and you are not likely to get a full $300 for the touch when you resell it, even if it is brand new.

    remember you can also get a free printer. if you are really short on cash, buy the lowest model macbook for 999, touch for 300, and printer for 100. total cost will be 1400 plus tax. CA tax makes it out to $1508. you will get $400 back in rebates. then, you can probably sell the touch for about $225-250. and sell the printer for what you can get. your total cost should run you $8XX. Also, remember this is with over $100 in taxes, so it is not a bad deal at all, but remember to include the taxes when calculating;)

    Anyone can get the student discount online. It's sad that apple does that. But heh, if losing $100 makes sum1 buy your product why the hell not right?
