I think it really depends on your use case.

Do you really need the power of the M1 iPad Pro with its XDR display? Are you trying to use it as a laptop replacement or for media consumption?

In my opinion, unless you're using it for your profession, the Air should check the boxes for most.
Are you trying to get both an iPad and then a MBP?
06-17-2021 at 05:50 PM
That's my intention. I'd be using it for Universal Control and Side Car. As far as Pro features are concerned, I'm attracted to the 120hz for sketching, including Lidar for AR features. Procreate 5.2 is going to add painting for CAD files, which their page said would directly take advantage of the M1. I also would like to own this tablet for as long as possible, so M1 might help with extended support. My major is Radio Television and Film, and I'm looking to do the heavy lifting for editing on the M1X Macbook Pro. The Pro might be overkill for me, but center stage and AR seem very practical fot my production design work.

I was waiting for the MBP too but just bought the Air instead. Who knows how much it'll cost (some rumors say the MBP 13 will remain on th e lower end) and who knows when they will have sufficient volume since TSMC was on low production for the last few months due to the drought (new iphone gets priority on chip production). I would expect the new MBP in August at the earliest and maybe even November if chip shortagfes are as serious as they are for everyone else.

My machine is worth thousands in productivity to me every month so it's worth it in my case to buy a MBA now and sell it at a small loss to get the new MBP whenever it comes out comes out. Your case may be different.

my receipt shows the same... i did installment loan and have installments for both airpods and the ipad, it took the price of the airpods off the ipad... so ill bet if you return to apple they'd see it was part of a promotion but walmart/target/best buy might return without receipt for store credit? waiting for someone to chime in also.... would prefer not to try to sell on craigslist and get scammed/killed as i already have 2 pair of airpods....

Quote from Shnikes :
The official stance seems to be no but you've got some replies in this thread that says yes. https://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop

At the top it says "Available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff, and homeschool teachers of all grade levels.*"

There seems to be people in this thread who said they have not had to get their information verified. What you decide to do is up to you.
Thank you very much.

Apple doesn't ask for any proof. Literally ANYONE can get the discount. The fine print, if I recall, even says parents can buy for themselves.
Don't you need a college email address?

Quote from SeriousFlower506 :
Not true. You have to have an .edu address that has been verified. If you try in store they'll ask for details or a student ID card.
Also if you are caught lying about it after the purchase has gone through Apple can and will charge you for the difference.
It was more laid back in the past but they do not mess around now.
BS, I just bought a macbook air with edu discount and my yahoo email and no questions were asked. It was recently delivered.

Kind of salty I could have gotten free airpods, but meh I already have them anyway.

Agreed. Corporate greed is alive and well. That said I'm still purchasing because of the sale lol

If it hasn't been 14 days you can return and reorder with the discounts applied
