  • People paid $ to learn this about Apple

    Could I be killed for saying this?

    Maybe.

    Do I care?

    Nah.

    Anyway if you were on ebay awhile back (and maybe even now) people would say they had info on how to get Macs on the CHEAP, for the mere price of $5.

    Well Ill tell ya, im bored and I just remembered so I figgered Id give it to the mp3car community and let em run with it.

    If you are (or know someone who is) a student and over 18 you can be a "Apple Student Developer" for $99/yr. If yer not a student, dont bother you have to prove it AND it otherwise costs upwards of $500-$3000/yr.

    With this you get a ONE TIME hardware purchase from the Developer store. I know a few Apple employees and have seen the prices they get and this is the same discount. Of course you save more on the higher priced models and it does cost $99 to get the discount so right off the bat yer $99 off yer discount. BUt on a high end G4 or G5 you can save $500. Well worth it.

    So heres how:

    goto developer.apple.com
    clik student developer on bottom left under DEVELOPER SUPPORT
    then read and signup.

    to see the store without being a developer:

    goto developer.apple.com
    clik hardware purchase program
    then clik your country
    under ORDERING INFORMATION clik ADC Hardware Purchase Program Store

    BAM!

          There are slightly better discounts through the Federal Employee purchase program. For example, the basic Mac Mini sells for $499 reg price, $474 through the Student Developer thing, and $469 through the Fed Employee program.

          Apple clearly states that the program is for personal use or for family members or friends here. So, if you have an uncle, sister, friend, or brother-in-law in the military or other government service (or contractor), they can do the ordering for you and you wouldn't have to pay a fee to get the discount.

          Hope this helps...

            Umm, this discount is no secret. It has been around all the major deal sites for the last year. Nice that you posted here though.

                        That's the latest 23" Apple Cinema Display. Ten Dual 2.0ghz Xserve G5s and an Xserve Terabyte RAID. You do the math.

                              I went to the fed employee store and the price wasnt cheaper on a G5 than it was on the student dev.

                              dual 2.5ghz G5

                              Fed emp: 2759
                              stud. dev: 2399

                              the mini is cheaper by $5, but I mean a glaring difference in price of $400 makes the student dev much better.

                              And Xserver RAID prices were different by $1000+ for student dev being cheaper..... so you coulda gotten ya whole setup for $1000s less im sure...
