    Hi there.
    What would the quickest way to get a new iMac with leopard? i understand that is you order it online on the 26th it won't come with leopard, is this so? if it is would i have to pay more to get leopard with the up to date program.

    Also if the quickest way is to go to an Apple store what kind of proof do i need to benefit from the education discount? I'm in sixth form, but the nearest apple store is an hours drive away, so this isn't a preferable option.

    If i do order online when and the iMac doesn't come with leopard when can i expect to get leopard?

    cheers, Joe

    I believe educational discount is only for Uni students, though if you call Apple they may let you use it anyway.

    i think you're thinking of the higher education discount. the education discount is available to a sixth former like the op, isn't it?

    OK then I think the stores will require Student ID, if you have an NUS Extra (if they still do them :rolleyes: ) card that'd be OK.

    I called up yesterday and they said that you cant get student discount on Leopard in store. You have to order it online.

    If you're a university or college student, you can access the UK-HE discount store directly from this URL:

    http://apple.procureweb.ac.uk/

    It also works on my old uni's VPN off campus...
