A mytechpatner employee was told by an Apple Store employee earlier that education discount was not applicable for Macbook 12 inch 2015 model. But he was still not convinced so he went online to order it and then went to pick it up at the local Apple Store. I was not given any discount.
Then yesterday he went online again to order something else and to his surprise, it was showing discount for their Macbook 2015 model. Later I learnt that I could have got better discount at the Best Buy which is $130 off the list price.
So he called Apple and he was was credited the difference. I just thought I should share this news with the prospective Macbook 2015.
Education discount is also application on retina Macbook Pro.
