Isn't that a developer only incentive?

You know for people actually using the machine to make software, and not a student ADC membership benefit.

yeah you had me going too. The regular student discount is rarely more than 5-6% off regular applestore pricesl.

So does it cost money to become a "student developer"?

On second look, you're totally off. It has nothing to do with being a student.

You have to be a premier ADC member. Here's the direct quote from the Apple website:

The ADC Hardware Purchase Program allows ADC Members with ADC Hardware Discount assets (These are included in Premier memberships, Select renewals, and occasionally as part of special promotions) to purchase Apple hardware for development purposes at a discount of approximately 10-20%.

Hmmm..

I am assuming that this is not for the "student developers" with the free ADC account, huh? Those prices are quite amazing though. You have any info on which level you have to be to get those?

Read a little further:

6. Participants in the ADC Hardware Purchase Program agree not to resell or otherwise transfer any items purchased for a period of at least one year from the date of shipment, and agree that all equipment ordered under the ADC Hardware Purchase Program will be used only for the purpose of developing software and/or hardware products that will be sold for use with Apple products.

Yes they are valid

Those prices are valid after a $99 Student ADC fee.

The guidelines are as follows:


From http://developer.apple.com/students/sthardware.html,

"ADC Student Program members are entitled to one purchase of a discounted development system (one (1) CPU with one (1) monitor; or one (1) iMac, PowerBook, or iBook per lifetime (non-renewable and subject to change) at approximately a 10-20% discount. (The discount varies by product and region due to local sales policies, pricing, and availability). Third-party products and software are not available for discounted purchase. Note that not all Apple products are discounted equivalently and some may not be available through the ADC Hardware Discount Program at all.

Please be sure you are adhering to the Terms and Conditions before ordering. In addition, we request that students fax a copy of student identification AND proof of current class registration in developer-related courses. Apple reserves the right to refuse access to this offer by non-students and/or non-developers. "

Also you must be age 18 or older.
