Somebody with apples student devloper thing come in here



hey i was thinking about switching, and i noticed the huge discounts with the apple student devlopers thing. now when i get this mac i do plan on learning about programming and stuff, but how great are the discounts?
im planning on getting a 12in powerbook combo drive. im 18 and in a community college. would it be worth it paying the $100 and getting a bigger discount than the education discount? how much more is the discount with the devloper than with the education?

thanks sooo much.
