If so, how long did it take to pay the $99 and get verified so you could use your discount?
little under a week. The longest wait I had was when I ordered my powerbook. Only took a few days to get the membership, but took over two weeks for it to ship and arrive. It was torture.
about 28 hours
Where do u apply for this, and what are the bennefits?
Do I have to do anything other than send a copy of my ID and course schedule?
I thought i'd have to send other stuff too... I guess not
you get an extra large discount on most products. you save the most with powerbooks.
the cost is $99 and you get extra development stuff sent to you in the mail every month.
what kind of software has anyone received? Im curious about it now...
$99 once or per year?
every month you receive a dvd with codes and tools as well as free os. I got two copies of tiger for free
yeah, its a yearly thing. however you only get one discount. so you can't wait another year and get another computer for uber cheap.
I could if I had my wife sign up for an account later...
Does anyone know how big the discount is, for powerbooks?
I am highly considering this..
Are you in the us? http://developer.apple.com/membership/usa.html
Click on the link that says "HARDWARE PURCHASE PROGRAM STORE (U.S.)"
look one post above
So is it worth it to sign up for this to buy a new computer even if I plan on doing nothing with the stuff they give me for being a "developer?"
If you save signifigantly (sp) more than the educational discount, then yes. And on top of getting a good deal, you can brag about your "connections" with apple.
All of the powerbooks should save ~100 bucks more than the student discount (after the $99 fee)
