I've been looking at the 2.16 MBP for some time now, and was going to wait for the next version to be released (possibly in June or later), but I will be graduatin from school in a few weeks and want to take advantage or the student discount. When does this expire? I was under the impression that it expires when you are no longer a student. Someone on this board mentioned that Apple extends the discount for 6 months after graduation for new graduates, but I have not been able to verify this on the Apple website, so I'm not sure if this is really true. I know alot of people mention that Amazon.com has no shipping/tax charge and that Apple student discount pretty much only covers tax. For the same model MBP with AppleCare, on amazon.com, I got $2299.98. WIth the Apple store, with student discount and tax, I got $2190.85. The difference is over $100. How badly do I need a new laptop? My PowerBook G4 is pretty painful to use at times, and embarassing because the latch is broken (I keep it closed with rubberbands). If the educational discount extends for 6 months, I will most likely wait. If not, I'll just got buy a MBP and be happy with it. I appreciate any thoughts!
