    Guys,

    A quick query, do any of the local Mac distributors/resellers offer educational discounts like in the US/Canada?

    There's and Educational Reseller 'link' at the LMK site but I cant seem to get any info about it.

    Im looking for a 12" PB.

    Merci.
    Randy

    PS: Unsure if this is the right place to ask.

    Be sure to check out first the price they would base the discount. The "discounted" price may actually be a little more expensive than the educ price.

    Hi! I ordered the new iBook from LMK, and my contact there, Marcy (nice lady, btw) told me that it's already available and I could pick it up on Monday. They didn't require me to give a downpayment though. But do you think it's still okay and hindi nakakahiya to ask for education discount when I'm about to pick it up na next week? Silly me---didn't even enter my mind to inquire about education discount :blush:

    i emailed Portia of Ynzal and she told me that the educational discount would be 3% (more or less). it applies to all Apple hardware and software except iPods, accessories, & peripherals.

    Check with Portia because I am not sure how they price it but I think they use the vat price for computing the educ discount. If you buy normally, they do not add vat. Do the math and see if the discounted price is worth it.

    I didnt bother starting a new thread since i used the search function and found this.

    So, im going to New York this tuesday, and im planning to buy a new Macbook Pro 17" at the apple store there. Im about to enter college, and im hoping to avail their "Apple Education Pricing" promo thing. Do any of you peeps know what the requirements are for me to avail of the promo?

    Im gonna be enrolled when i get back from the states. what i was planning to do. Since my mom owns a TESDA school in Cagayan De Oro, im gonna ask her to make me a letter saying that i am enrolled there. Will this plan be able to get me the education pricing or will they need some more evidence/documents?

    Sayang din kasi yung discount eh hehehe diba? :D

    This will not work...you will have to be enrolled*in a local school...so if you're buying in the US, then you will have to be enrolled in a US school

    If you can wait, the Apple Resellers offer huge educational discounts come June/July. That's how I got my MBP last year, and the discount is huge (as in really HUGE). I got my MBP from Liteware, an authorized reseller.

    Why not try Charlie of Digital Walker? He gives a good deal even on regular inquiries. He might have some special education pricing.

    What's your experience in buying from the online Philippine Apple Store? Do they verify whether you're in education? I heard in the US they barely check, if ever.
