How much more is the Developers discount vs Education discount for a standard 15" MacBook Pro?
20% vs 15% if you are a university student or teacher.
"developers discount"? Does that even exist?.... how do you get that?!!
Enroll in ADC, to get 20% off.
Only if you're a student or a real developer.
Just go there to see the prices. It's NOT simply 15% vs 20%, because the MBP education discount is nothing, I think 1899$.
edit: I should also mention that exchanges are much more difficult through ADC unless you get a DOA. And there are no refunds. So there is a definite trade-off, but it worked out for me.
Yeah, hah. With education discount, it's only $100, I know any savings is good but big friggin deal - I save $100! LOL
also, it's important to note that it's a one time use
that is why as a student i bought the 2.66. you save $200 on the upper model. i just love the apple care is $110 off.
I also bought the 2.66 MBP model with my ADC discount. Bought it for $2160 cdn compared to $2700 without the discount. $440 in savings once you consider $99 registration cost. I also think you get a copy of OS X which you can sell to recoup the $99 cost.
Everybody that I've talked to at the apple store and on the phone have all said that there is a maximum of a 100 for the education discount. Although, the people at my local apple store aren't very smart. They gave us 100$ off on a 160 gig apple tv. I guess it all evens out.
I think it is max. of $100. It's $100 before tax for all models. Someone please correct me. I don't think there is a percentage, it's just $100.
yea its definitley $200 off for the 2.66 model. i think >$2000 its $200 off and <$2000 its $100. apple store employees for the most part dont seem very informed, but i guess they dont have to be. most of the ppl they talk to dont know as much as the members on this forum. they just have to make the customer "feel good" about their purchase.
The standard EDU discount is a joke. It basically pays for your sales tax. Often it's cheaper to just order from Amazon w/ a rebate. However, if you go to a big school they usually offer unbeatable deals.
From what I recall the developer discount is pretty significant, but you only get to buy one system for your entire college life. Also if you are not a developer, the savings might not be worth it since membership is $99.
Agreed, but this only applies to the student developer membership.
This is also true, the OP asked about both developer and student prices. But yes totally I agree, it is for people who are real developers.
Dead On Arrival
SO they send you a free copy of OS X when you sign up?
Yep, Student Developers have access to a retail copy of OSX that they can use to well, Develop things with.
Much more flexibility then a OEM copy for a specific apple system.
There's education discount you can view on Apple's website, then there's Higher Education Discount which you can only get if you are a student at college/university and the higher education store is only viewable from your campus's network.
And for the MacBook Pro, it is 15% off. Some models of Mac, it can be up to 20%. Depends what you are buying.
