    I thought I'd save all the questions about UK HE pricing and pull the prices from the HE Online Store for everybody. These prices are current as of 25/02/2011, including VAT.

    Note that all Macs purchased online from the Education store, or over the phone, will come with a 3 year parts & labour warranty. Please see http://appleagreement.procureweb.ac.uk/homepage.aspx for further details.

    Things to note?
    Slight variation in BTO prices (such as hi-res antiglare costing £1.20 more on the lower model 15" than on the high end 15"), and that antiglare is only available with the hi-res screens. You can also drop down in HD sizes on certain models, but you don't get any cash off for doing so (ie: from a 750GB 5400rpm to a 500GB 7200rpm).

    Think the pricing is good, it brings the top 15" model back into my price range where as normal pricing it is a couple of hundred pounds too expensive. £1500 for those machines is a great deal, very thankful i work in HE.

    With the 128GB SSD upgrade and Hi-Res Antiglare, the 17" is cheaper than the 15"?? :eek:

    I bought the high end 13" yesterday from the Apple Store and received a different HE discount than you have quoted. My receipt says £1,104.15, with a total discount of £194.85. Does this mean I wasn't charged the correct pricing? :confused: It seems I received 15% off rather than the standard 14%.

    These prices are straight off the HE Education store online, and are what is charged over the phone as well. In-store purchases are different, both in terms of the amount of discount (which seems to vary) and the fact you don't get the automatic 3 year hardware warranty. So you saved £13.05, but lost 2 years of coverage.

    Higher Education discount online seems to be around 16.2% (on 13" - 15"), going up to 17.6% on the 17" MacBook Pro.

    In store, I got 15% discount on my 13" MBP. I watched the guy enter 15% as the discount.

    Not sure where the discrepancy is coming from, or if the new MBPs get slightly better HE discounts than the previous ones.

    im so torn between the low end 15" with a 128 ssd and Hi-res for £1538, or the higher end 15" with just the Hi-res screen for £1640.

    Which will be better for me considering;
    - i dont do any video editing/cad/intense gaming or anything like that
    - a little logic pro video production and fairly heavy aperture work
    - i like to have lots of stuff open at once; 60 + browser tabs, blu-ray MKVs, iwork, itunes, ical, mail, etc

    Also with regards to the SSD, i heard 128=110GB of free space out of the box, this true?

    also can you run bootcamp W7 off an extrenal drive, SSD def wont have enough space for dual partition

    Depending on how big a machine you want, fly to the US, buy one, and get a vacation in the process for the same price... :D

    I would definitely go for the higher end MBP, as Aperture likes GPUs. Buy a third party SSD yourself down the road when the prices have dropped enough for you to be happy with the price.

    Auto warranty? I'd like that. Got my edu discount in-store and there was a discount off Applecare, but no mention of a freebie.

    Anyone had any luck talking them round to including this in-store?

    You'll never get it in store, just the cheap AppleCare. The reason for this is that the freebie is a negotiated part of the HE National Agreement, and part of the T&C for this is that it has to be online/phone sales only. Apple are actually being quite reasonable by discounting AppleCare in-store though.

    The Uplift available online/phone is to get the telephone support extended to three years.

    That isn't how it works I'm afraid!

    The UK HE discount is actually very complicated, online/phone is a completely separate arrangement to in store (Apple are under a contractual obligation to give you a 3 year warranty online). You can usually get Applecare for ~£45 in store, which is still a very good deal.

    If you buy online, over the phone, or in store, you get the 3 year warranty for parts and labour, but it doesn't include phone support.

    That topic discusses it more.
