According to 9 to 5 Mac,

"Although Apple retail stores across the nation have received the visual materials for the 2011 Back to School promotion, Apple has pushed the day back for unknown reasons. The rest of the story still stands."

I just want this shit to hurry up so I can order my Macbook.

We still get that 10% student discount right?


I heard that best buys care plan is >apple care


for the same price.

I want to see the world burn

Jun 16, 2011 @ 00:59
^ U get the 10% all year round... Best buy warranty is better than Apples cause it covers more stuff
Jun 16, 2011 @ 01:44
^^when i got my mbp (15"), the student discount was only $100 off and thats not 10%...
Jun 16, 2011 @ 02:34
yeah im pretty sure its not 10%

i know you get $50 off the macbook, $100 off the macbook pros and as far as imacs im not sure.

pretty bummed about the lame back to school offer, i really wanted an ipod touch. however im still gonna wait for the $100 gift card, if you notice it doesnt say "itunes" it says mac app store, and im figuring the mac apps --used on the laptops and desktop macs not the portable devices-- are not as easy to pirate, or maybe they are, who knows. either way if im spending a chunk of my savings for the mbp im gonna get as much free shit as i can, im in no rush, i have a working comp and classes dont start anytime soon.

EDIT: just checked apple.com and it seems they are now giving $100 discount on the white polycarbonate macbooks, i know for a fact it was only $50 before. still no sign of the back to school promo on the site.

DOUBLE EDIT: i just remembered that OSX Lion is gonna be sold exclusively on the MAc App Store, so if you save your gift card you can use it to buy Lion when it comes out, instead of paying for it out of pocket, if i recall correctly its not even ganna be that expensive so youll even have money left over. i guess its not all that bad after all, free ipod wouldve still been better.

TRIPLE EDIT OMG: lion is only gonna be 29.99 in the mac app store, so yeah. editing post is fun fun fun
Jun 16, 2011 @ 12:35
lion is going to be free if u buy a mac now so...

Jun 16, 2011 @ 15:22
yeah that too,
Jun 16, 2011 @ 16:32
The deal is up.
Jun 18, 2011 @ 00:15
so i bought my macbook pro and got the gift card.

anyone got any good suggestions on what to get from the mac app store? and is there a way to pirate these apps?
Jun 18, 2011 @ 11:49
Should have waited until mid-July to cop. Now, you'll need to save like, $30 dollars from that gift card for Lion when it drops.


Not winning.

What do y'all find more fitting for a med school student - an iMac or an MacBook Pro? My cousin was thinking about getting an iMac for his dorm, but I told him that a laptop would definitely be more convenient. He was going to do an iMac/iPad combo, leaving him with processing power when needed, but mobility as well when he's on the go. He's basically on a limitless budget, so he's now considering the higher-end 15" MBP, for roughly $2,000 (some extras added on through Apple.com).

Damn can't wait for lion. $30 is dirt cheap!
