    I did come across a thread mentioning this but it was about 3 years old so i'm guessing things have moved on since then.

    My question is; What is the difference (%wise) on a MBP with each of this discounts? considering that that I will only be able to get the basic student discount

    The MBP will have these upgrades:
    4GB RAM
    250GB 7200rpm HDD
    Apple Remote
    VGA adaptor

    The ADC Student discount costs £50

    Thanks in advance

    I think the percentage for the ADC is about 20% (this is not from experience but just other threads i think its the 21st post by kastenbrust)

    The normal student price is 10% :)

    Using the Univsersity computer/internet I get a 20% :D

    Im wanting a mac pro and this is prices i get:
    Normal - £1712.00
    Student not on campus - £1575.50
    Student on Campus using University internet - £1399.00
    ADC discount - ????

    So I would say try to order it from your university, cos thats wat im gona do once they bring out the new mac pros.

    Hope this helps

    Thats right, Student discount is 10% but very easy to get with no cost to you.

    Student ACD is 20% but costs £50. ($99) and can ONLY BE USED ONCE!! :(

    Normal deveoper is 20% but can be used 3 times.

    The laptops aren't using Core i7.

    Yeah... the Mac Pro's chip... called Gainestown. Which isn't anything like the laptop chips that won't be out until October at the earliest.
