Indeed, if you need 16 GB of ram then the student discount offsets it perfectly ( 16 GB becomes +$180, QQ )

I keep getting error messages on the education store...

There may be some items in your cart that qualify for a discount. Please refresh this page in your browser. If the issue persists, please try again later or call the Apple Store at 1-800-MY-APPLE.

I see the gift card in my cart, but it won't let me check out. Keeps telling me that an item in my cart qualifies for a discount and to refresh the browser window, but refreshing does nothing. If I remove the card, checkout works fine...

Im having same issue, if I go through without the card, I can purchase it. Im not sure if its worth taking the risk and letting 100 dollar go. I called 800 my apple and they said they were too busy and they hung up! Also, I thought they said shipping today, It says 5-7 days right now. anyone else getting this or am I already late? I wouldn't the demand for this would be as high as with the iphones/ipads.

it was 5-7 days ever since the store went up. it may just be slated that high in anticipation, it doesn't necessarily mean they will ship *every* order today (but some, maybe a lot, will)

5-7 days till you receive it. They will probably ship the expedited orders out today as im seeing 2-3 business days for expedited

Where does he work? And does anyone know what other companies get this discount or is this just a 'few and far between' kind of thing?

ok. still weird. this is what the order page said for me, both lines:

Available to ship in 5-7 business days
Delivers Within 5 days after shipping by Standard Shipping

----------

did anyone get an email confirmation yet?

I took a screenshot of the error and placed the order without the gift card. I''ll just call Apple in a few days...

I chatted with a rep online and she just told me that they are aware of the error and to try again later.
