    1. Yes, you can.
    2. You would need an acceptance letter from UCAS or from the University itself
    3. No.
    4. Something like that, it's £50 without VAT, so it should come out at £58.75.

    You don't need an acceptance letter. You need a student id card. If you have an id card for your uni with an 8-digit student code on it then they will use that code.
    It's the exact same code that they put onto an nus card. As long as you have a student id card with a photo on it and the 8-digit code, then they should accept that.
    I Have one for uce and they accept that no trouble

    1) Yes. I did last week
    2) As i said before. Student id card or NUS card
    3) Nope. any uni will do
    4) It is only £58 pound when bought with the mac. With a mac it has something like 80% discount. Pretty gud.
    But it is onlt something like 13% if bought seperatly. I kno this cos i bought my iMac applecare last week and got it reduced from £139 to £109 or somethin like that. They took my ID card number when i bought it.
    Which mac do you want the applecare for?

    Thanks for your help

    The low end macbook.

    I notice you go to UCE, did you buy your mac from the bullring store?

    Ach. I'm sorry. I presumed you'd be moving up from college =/

    It's already been said that you'll need your student ID card, that should do the trick.
