    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...

    Question

    No seriously... what DO you do with all that? Let me guess... "same thing we do every night, pinkie...try to take over the world!"
    but seriously, I enjoy my student discount, but I would love to reach the level of enjoyment you have attained.

    Here's why the student discount is more than the federal one. It is required by law that the government always gets below retail price. They have lots of money though. So the federal discount allows retailers to make enough money, while still obeying the law. Student developers, however... do not have money. The cheaper it is, the more inclined you are to buy it. Not only does this increase sales, but it also ensures that student developers will make some progress... which may later be payed back to the computing world in some way or another. New advancements equals new opportunities to make money. It's all marketing.

    I do R&D with NASA. So basically yeah... try to take over the world (or space).

    The other way to do this is to click on the apple store, on the right you will see a box titled "More Stores", choose "Education". Select "find your college or university", enter in your zip (or city/state) and select the school you're going to, accept the agreement, and it will set a cookie so everytime you go here, you see the student prices. Mac mini for $479. And you don't have to pay the $99.

    I pick and choose if I'm using my fed employee discount program or my student program (since I'm in the navy and taking distance ed, I get both).

    My powerbook replacement is actually a bit cheeper under the student program ($1839 w/ governemt and $1799 w/ student), but like he said, the mac mini is only $469 w/ fed employee discount.

    EDUCATION DISCOUNT IS NOTHING COMPARED TO DEV. DISCOUNT. Check yer fax first before you say edumacation is good cuz u dont spend $99.... When u save $500, 99 spent aint bad.

    With dev discount u should be buying an EXPENSIVE mac and not a friggen mini, to save $ on a mini, goto ebay.
