EXPIRED

Apple have stopped giving 3 year warranty on student deals.

So I went to buy a macbook the other day and the bloke said do you want Apple Care? I said no, I thought you get a 3 year warranty with any Apple computer purchased as a student.... Apparently not.

I was surprised as they were offering it last time I checked. I guess maybe it's changed due to the financial year changing. Apple Care is £47

I believe Apple have been doing this for while. They offer one year with all of there products - extended warranty is an extra charge! I do think the student rate of £47 for 2yrs Applecare is quite reasonable considering it's almost £200 if your not a student! Sure if your going o spend so much on your Mac, £47 is nothing... I certainly bought my Applecare at the student rate and have no regrets ;-)

This it true, they stopped it ages ago, but in all fairness i was not fazed by £47 for 3 years warranty on something that costs nearly £1000, if anything its a great price considering its over £200 for none students

I bought a macbook pro in late october and they gave me it then for free so it must have just stopped

I bought my imac in december and it had stopped then, :thumbsup:

They DO offer it, but only online, only for HE, and it must be bought through your university network.

They are VERY cagey about it but i phoned up to check and it's true. They don't offer it in store though, even with proof of Higher Education.

As sweetberryjam said, buy online through the Apple Higher Education store and the AppleCare is free, but in store with the Higher Education discount and they charge you £47 or so for the AppleCare.
Another point is that when I was looking into getting a Mac the instore HE price was cheaper than the online HE price (I think different unis have different rates) so you're best off looking into all the options.
