    Looking to buy a new Macbook pro with student discount [student needed]

    Hi there,

    I am on a two week holiday in Hong Kong and I would really like to purchase Apple's new macbook pro. Originally I intended to buy it with student discount using my own foreign student ID card, however the employees told me that only "local" HK college students are eligible for this discount. Is there any college student on this forum that is kind hearted and have the time to accompany me so I can make use of their student ID for the discount? Thanks a lot!

    Ps: Every student is eligible to buy 2 new macbook pro's a year using their student discount, so it won't hinder your own plans in purchasing Apple products :P

    Student discounts are validated. Looked into this for the kid, and ended up buying a refurbished unit as that was still cheaper.
