1. What is the best time to buy a new MacBook Pro, price-wise?
2. Do medical students benefit from the student discounts?
3. Does Apple still provide those summer student discounts (in previous years, students buying a new laptop would be offered a free iPod or some such thing.)
4.. If so, how do I best take advantage of the student discount? (Should I use the "Educational Pricing" option advertised on the website? Or wait 'till the summer deals come out?)
5. As someone who is not doing any visual/artistic work on my laptop, do I really want to pay the extra for Retina?
Thank you for your advice!
(I hope this is the appropriate place for this post; please let me know if it isn't.)
