I am going to admit I am not a student, however money is ultra tight and I really need a new power machine. So, I am looking at getting a mac pro. Needless to say, I am trying to save on anything I can. How does the student discount work. If I "found" a friend who was a student, how would I go about the process of purchasing it through them. Does Apple records have them listed as the primary owner or something crazy like that ? What happens if I buy AppleCare for it next year ? Amazon has the Mac Pro for $2,500 but I don't see a way to upgrade the video card. So far, this has been the best deal I have found.
