    Hi Guys,

    I'm a student in the UK, so can get a 14% discount here. However, I'm off to California to study for a year. Can someone tell me if the educational discounts in the States are comparable? I've tried to look online but there's only a $100 discount. If there are extra discounts how much would a blackbook cost (inc. discount and California taxes)? In the UK I can get it for about £816 with AppleCare for an £60- roughly $1750.

    Cheers!

    Its usually $50 for the mini, $100 for the MacBook and iMac, $200 for the MPB, and varies on the MacPro, at least as the discounts directly from Apple go, buy default. Many schools sell Apple Hardware and Software and a better rate, while still other schools have special deals to get better discounts for students. Since student pricing is optional, there is no across-the-board percentage discount, sorry.

    Thanks

    Thanks :)

    From other threads I'm assuming I can get Applecare for around $120 if a shop around a bit?

    If you get it outside of california, you can avoid the 110 dollars in state tax.
