View Full Version : Student Developer vs. EDU Discount ?'s

I am going to be switching over from windows and will be getting a new powerbook. I have seen some recent posts saying people have bought new powerbooks using the student developer instead of using the regular student discount. I know it costs 100 dollars to be a student developer. Is it worth going through the process of signing up to get the extra discounts? Will it take just as long to get a powerbook if I bought it using the student developer versus just using the educational discount? Can someone give me a brief overview on how this actually works? I am a fulltime student at a University that apple recognizes. I am looking at getting either the 15'' or 12'' powerbook.

Thanks Dan

I have to do some web design in one of my classes next semester. I dont think I will be doing any Mac OSX applications though.

Anyone have any info on this?

By signing up for a student developer account (http://developer.apple.com/students/), you can get a ONE TIME (that's once in a lifetime. period.) purchase from the ADC Hardware Purchase Program (http://developer.apple.com/membership/hardware.html). Depending on what you choose to order, using this method can cost much less than purchasing through the regular Apple Store for Education (http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/routingpage.html).

Yes, ADC purchases can take longer to fulfill after new product intros than regular orders will. Also, there are no refunds on items purchased through the ADC program. There are other small caveats as well.

Read the information at the links I've provided here and all of your questions should be answered.

That $99 will also get you OS updates throughout the year, which would include 10.4, offsetting about $69 of that upfront fee right there.

As long as you're going for a fairly high level machine ($2000 or above in the retail store, $1800 or above in the edu store) the ADC is a better deal. I jsut saved $400 ($500-$99) on my new Powerbook, but just used the edu discount on my last iBook. I'll probably dabble at developing but who knows. If you're a student now and you won't be later I'd use it. Otherwise you'll lose the opportunity to get the $99 membership, and they do check! You have to fax proof- copies of registration and IDs. On a low-end computer, you might end up wasting money on the membership by not saving over $99 on the computer so keep an eye on it.

ED:Just reread your post- on the 12" it's not really worth it, the 15" is- fyi.

Well I threw down the 99 bones and got the student membership. All I am waiting for now is my financial aid check so I can buy the 1.67 ghz 15'' SD with the 128mg video card. The reason I decided to buy the 15'' model was the screen quality on the 15'' is so much better. I have one year left with my b.s. then I am off to law school. Im just so happy that they finally released an update with a price break because right now I am running Windows 98. :smokey:

so people with a developer account get tiger for free? or is that at a discounted price..if so..how much?

Enki
2005-01-31, 23:55
Free with a paid developer account. Not free and no discount if you only have a free ADC account. I just used the $69 because that's about what Tiger should go for on the Edu price.

HOLY HELL! EVEN MORE GLAD I BOUGHT IT!

Not to mention I saved another 400 bucks off my 15" powerbook (100+99 more than the edu discount)

Only thing I was gonna be mad about was that I had to buy Tiger later. YAY!!

So when the time comes, do they automatically send it, or do I have to go to the website?

I just ordered the new PB BTO- shipping on the 8th- others are receiving theirs on the 7th. Could be ADC or could be I ordered in the afternoon, but it doesn't seem that I'm losing a whole lot of time on the new one b/c of how I ordered it.

Fax a copy of your current or upcoming school schedule and your ID. Nothing is sent to you right away, but once yoou get the confirmation email from Apple that your information (faxed ID and schedule) has been verified, then you can order. You can find a local (well, atleast in your country) fax number on the developer site, or in the email they send you.

So I would just randomly send them my ID and schedual via fax?
Is it going to ask for this once i purchase?
or should i do this before purchasing?

I got an email that with the title "ADC Transaction Approved" is that what we are looking for?

I faxed my information at 4:00PM on Tuesday, and re-faxed it today (Thursday) at 9:45AM (central times, btw). So, it either took 2 days, or 2 hours to activate my account, depending on whether or not the Tuesday fax actually went through. I'm placing my order now, then I have to run to the bank for a wire transfer (stupid check card limit).

that is not correct. some states don't have the sales tax. and others apple has no presence whatsoever in and still charge tax. i don't know what the criteria is but i think the belief that they must charge tax if they have a physical presence in a state is an old myth. i think there is some other reason.

2005-02-03, 16:13
Right. It's just a state tax thing.

SALES TAX

Apple Store purchases will include sales tax based on the ship-to location and the sales tax rate in effect at the time of shipping. If you phone in your order, the Apple Store sales representative will provide the final dollar total of your order including tax and any applicable shipping charges at the time you place your order. If the sales tax rate for the state to which your order is being shipped changes before the product is shipped, the new tax rate in effect at the time of shipment will apply.

(Obviously if he's in one of the 5 states with no sales tax he wouldn't be charged anything.)

I will be a student in fall of 05, so how do i email them my schd. and ID if i haven't started yet. Also I have to have the PB b4 i get to school. In addition, I don't think i will be taking design classes my first semester. But will design websites further down the line so does that matter. Anyways Thanks for the help and if anyone wants money to help pay for the wonderful apple products may i suggest buy some AAPL stock. Never hurts to invest in what you believe. Thanks

No, you cannot be approved for a student developer account unless you are taking some type of computer development course. Looks like you'll have to settle with the regular .edu discount. You could also put the purchase off until you do end up taking that dev. class, or you could buy a cheap computer now and get a really nice one in two years or so. Plenty of options.

Can anyone confirm this is actually the case? It is my understanding that ADC Student program is available to all university students who have an interest in programming.

To quote apple's Student Developer site, "Some of the best Macintosh application development has come from students like you...That's why we've designed an affordable developer program (only $99 (US)/year), making it easy for students around the world to learn how to develop on the Macintosh platform."

I'm not majoring in computer sciences, nor taking any computing courses this year. But I just had my membership verified and activated. So I just don't want to see any potential buyers scared off by that comment if it's not true and paying more than you have to.

Interesting...
you didn't have to send in a copy of your course list?
maybe they just used that to ensure you are enrolled at school.

I read every section of the site way back in 2002 when I bought my TiBook and I came to the conclusion that I needed to have at least one "computer oriented" (not necessarily programming) class on the transcript. I could be wrong.

Have you received your discounted computer yet? Did you get the bill for it yet?

I was charged the ADC discounted rate for a 17" powerbook. I called an Apple representative and she confirmed of the transaction and the notebook will be shipped out within the next 24 hours. They were all really helpful. I guess it wouldn't hurt if a student calls them to confirm if they're eligible to enroll into the program.

Teachers have access to the same Apple Store for Education for discounts on just about everything. :)

You can also sign up for a paid ADC developer account, but you won't qualify for the student ADC membership price. The higher "regular" membership tiers give out the same stuff as the student membership and more.

2005-02-06, 23:14
for me, the ADC reduced the 17" from $3,100 to $2,720 Cdn. Although I had to shell out $100US to cover the ADC charge, but that's partially offset by the complementary commercial version of OS X 10.4 tiger when it is released. Regular price is $3,400. So that's another 12% savings from the education discount. It's quite a good deal! I'm eagerly waiting for it to arrive. =)

If you buy applecare, buy it after you buy the pb, because its WAY cheaper with just the regular student discount ($110 cheaper). I wish I knew this beforehand. :mad:

fyi- os x doesnt support that cable, or at least it didnt through 10.2.whatever... maybe they upgraded it but i called and was assured they had not. you can use the cable but it has to go through os 9 to work.

while on the phone i also verified that you do NOT need to be taking computer-related courses to be approved, but need to be currently enrolled.

hope this helps.

I took the whole CCNA thing last year. It was pretty fun, except the curriculum is boring like hell. The CCNA test itself is pretty easy, as long as you know what to expect. As for the cable, it looks like this (http://www.keyspan.com/products/usb/USA19HS/) will work. However, does anyone know what program you would use to console into a router? Would Terminal work?

BTW, it's really weird how you don't have to be in a computer course to get the discount. That's really strange. :err:

I went to the Apple store at the Mall of America to decide between the 15" and 17". One of the sales guys asked if he could help, and I told him I was just deciding between them. He had never heard of the ADC or student developer discount, I had to tell him what it was :) I suppose I could have pressed further about using the discount in the store, but 1) their website specifically says it's not useable at the retail locations and 2) I wanted a BTO so it was irrelevant.

2005-02-11, 13:24
I have noticed that Apple Retail employees have no idea what ADC is, and no, you cannot get the discount at the retail stores b/c it is once in a lifetime and they can't track it at the stores (i.e. you could steal someone else's ID or something). The guy I talked to seemed a little surprised at how cheaply I got my PB b/c it was very similar to his employee discount.

You can get the student edu discount at the Retail Store w/ an ID but it's not as high. Read back through these posts to see the differences. All BTOs have to go through the website, but I think someone mentioned that.

Mine PB just left Anchorage. :smokey: I dont think mine took any longer then the usual order becuase my order was only open for roughly 20 hours and I had a FedEx tracking number within a hour or two. I did end up getting the 12'' SD though because I saw that people who ordered the 15'' ones were having to wait and this way I can convince myself to save up enough money this summer to get a 20'' cinema display.

Just catching up again- I got my 15" a day early- apparently I ordered it an hour before everyone else did. :-) I got it a week before my developer kit came in the mail- now I feel like a real cool kid with my Apple Developer T-Shirt. :-D I got the computer the first week of February. I don't think ADC gets stuck in a different slot for orders from the way it worked out. Just depends how fast you order!

Hello:

I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster, but hoping that someone here can help me answer a question or two I had about an upcoming powerbook purchase....

As a student, I have the option of going the developer route or through the apple store for education...when I did the side by side comparisons on a 15" custom built model, the developer route ended up saving me more, with one exception...

When I added Apple Care into the mix, it pretty much wiped out any savings I hoped to achieve. As a student developer, Apple Care is offered at $349 while the Apple Store for Education sells it for $239, a difference of $110.

Now from what I understand, Apple Care can be purchased up to a year after your initial purchase. If this is true, is it possible for me to purchase my powerbook as a student developer without Apple Care and then buy it later on either in an Apple Retail Store or online through the Apple Store for Education separately at the lower rate? Is this even possible?

Also, is it true that Apple Care doesn't cover the screen?

That's all for now...I'm sure I'll have some more as I get closer to making the purchase. Thanks!

-Samuel

Yes, that should work out fine.
AppleCare does not cover accidental damage, but if something technical goes wrong with the screen (and you didn't do anything to it) they will most likely replace it...

I've been waiting for mine too, I hoped it would have arrived today but guess not. The May developer mailing was shipped out on April 29th.

You cant get that -$100 deal for students with the ADC discount correct?

I just got an email from apple stating that I can now go to the ADC Downloads section and download the 8a428 build of tiger since the May developer mailing just includes the Upgrade disc and the June mailing will include the full install. So for all the student developers out there waiting for tiger to arrive if you have a speedy internet connection go to the dowloads section of the ADC site under Mac OSX and download the 2.1GB disk image.

What do you do with the .dmg once you download it? The .dmg file gives me a "disk image failed to mount: not recognized" error when I try to mount it. Is it just an corrupt download or are you supposed to somehow burn straight to DVD?

I just burned the image file with toast... booted and installed on my powerbook and B&W G3 just fine.
