    I'd like to buy a macbook from the US store, with the help of my friend, who's now studying in NJ. The thing is that I'm going to use my European visa card, to place an order (I already tried that, and it went through with no problems) and use his dormitory address for shipping. Now how does this education discount thing work? Although the sales policy states...
    ... would it still be possible to receive educational discount, not being his relative? :) And is the shipping address enough proof for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I do not think you would have much of a problem. Your friend is a student so thats ethical.

    Obviously you're not a golfer.
    it is totally against the EULA of the academic priced software, which states that the end user must be a student, staff or faculty (or parents of a student).

    having said that you will not get caught anyway.
