I'd like to buy a macbook from the US apple.com 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...
Eligibility
Higher Education Parents - Parents purchasing on behalf of their child, who is a student currently attending or accepted into a public or private Higher Education Institution in the United States, are eligible to purchase.
... 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!

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.
