West coast colleges and Powerbooks

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
This is a spin off from a thread in FH.



Who can report of being offered a 667 for 1900 at your campus? Do you have to show proff that you attend the college? Anyone from Irvine seen this?



This could be my way to a new PB. If I bought the same here it would cost me 3650 and they are NEVER discounted.

    No price change in Washington State Univ. Same old educational price.

    I got a mac with an education discount calling Apple and simply saying I was a student. No proof of any kind needed.

    Was that recently (within the last couple of weeks)? And do you know if those who are at UCLA in Irvine have the same offer?

    There is no UCLA in Irvine. UCLA stands for Univ of California, Los Angeles. So it would be UC - Irvine. Just givin' ya a hard time.

    The Scholar's Workstation at UC Berkeley has the PowerBook 800 MHz for $2399 and the 667 for $1899. ID is required of course.

    My friend who works for a specialist says Apple's pro products are just selling like sh*t. I think this is a perfect example. UCLA has been offering this discount on Powerbooks since July.
