    I don't think you can access the educational store remotely if you don't have the university proxy. this is the link:

    You can, you just click 'School or any
    other education establishment.'

    How come the promo gives you a free iPod Touch in the US, where as in the UK it'll still cost £20

    Dunno but last year I think the max you could get was something like £90 towards a nano so it's an improvement.

    Could it be related to VAT or tax laws over here? Although an extra 15% on £145 would take it to £166 so maybe not.

    Yea.. but you don't get the same discount as university account. And yeah i agree bout the £20. See everything with apple or even Microsoft is more expensive here than the USA. You are guys in the other side are really well treated! :p

    I bet you accessed the university link through the proxy/university network and then copied the url? ;)

    Just wondering. Can you get an instant rebate in-store? And if you buy it online does the rebate come as a cheque?

    Usually you have to mail in your receipt and barcode off the Mac and the iPod.

    They then either mail a cheque or transfer to your bank account (your choice) within 4 weeks.

    There is a rebate of £60 for printers also but does anyone know if you can get the rebate for both the printer and the iPod or is it just the one?
