    Question Educational Discount?????
    So I will be going to Dalhousie University in about a year and a half and I really want a ibook or powerbook. How does the ed. discount work and how much will it take off. Say, I bought a $3,000(Canadian Funds) iBook how much would they take off?

    P.S.- I like the iBook because it has longer battery life and it can really take a beating, but can a Powerbook really survive inside my backpack and maybe be dropped, like the iBook can with out risk of data lose?

    Thanks.

    Specs:
    14" iBook G3 900/640/40 _ _ Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One 315/768/20 _ _ 20 GB iPod
    Just go to the Apple Store Canada website and click on "Education" on the left side.

    The education prices are $1349 (12" Combo), $1599 (14" Combo), and $1898 (14" 1.2 GHz). So in your case, the savings are about $100.

    Not in all cases, as you can see from the numbers I posted above.

    If you're referring to AppleCare, it is a total of 3 years from the date of purchase. You can buy the AppleCare plan any time within your original 1 year warranty period.

    I bet that he's thinking of the australian edu deal:

    all educational buys got 3 years extended warranty thrown in for free. That promotional deal was recently cancelled in Australia. I don't think it was ever offered elsewhere though...

    All apple products come with 1 years free warranty, buying applecare will extend it by 2 years, giving you a total of 3 years warranty.
    You can only buy applecare within the original warranty period (i.e. within 1 year of buying your product)
