    Does anybody know the percentage you can get off inside an apple store for presenting a student card?

    Also, is there a limit to how many products you can register on one student card? For example myself an a work colleague are going to buy the new MB, however, my girlfriend is a student, so would she be able to get us both the discount?

    It depends on where she studies. Apple have 3 different stages of discount in the UK. A standard educational discount is fairly small - 4-6%. For further education, it is around 12% and 15% for higher eduction if you want a MacBook Pro. All computers have a different amount of discount but your girlfriend's institution should be on Apple's list in order to get it.
    You are only allowed 1 computer per year per card but there is no way of checking if you have used it for more - they take down the student card number but it does not get registered on a system or anything
