    It isn't always a percentage. The online store at my institution says $1899 for the 27". That's $100 off. I wish it was more too.

    I am fairly certain it's

    14% on iMac
    15% on Macbook
    16% on Mac Pro

    EDIT: that's based on what I've seen from going to the Apple Store (Regent Street, London)

    No need to ask, just goto the Educational Store and put in your school (or any school) and it will show you the Ed prices.

    University students get a significant discount. On the Core i5 iMac it is 13% off. This brings it from £1599 down to £1407, a saving of £192 (US$316 for those who are interested).

    Remember also that all University students who order online get 3 years of warranty included for free.

    Usually it's a fixed dollar amount on the base model (which is displayed if you log into the Education Store), plus 10% off the upgrade options if you customize it.

    Yes. As long as you are a university student. But it's only in the UK...

    No, buying from a retail store does not entitle you to the free warranty. You can get a 75% discount on AppleCare instead, but on these machines it will end up costing about £50.

    You only get the free three year warranty if you order online from http://apple.procureweb.ac.uk - ordering from other education stores or other retailers does not entitle you to the bonus.

    Are you sure about that? I seem to remember the Apple guy telling me that Apple Care for a MBP is 46 pounds or so..
