    Just buy it online using educational discount. Anyone can do it. They don't do any checks on it . I've bought macbook pro, macbook air, and cinema display using the educational discount. All no problems.

    Same for me. They do check your background. So do be careful though.

    You don't have to provide anything. Just your name, your address, credit card number. They will verify everything else. If you are afraid of ordering online, call Apple Telesales instead. They will do it for you. Just make sure before ordering, go to the online store, take a look at the stuff you want, or upgrades, then just mention to them. They are very friendly.

    FYI

    From the Terms and Conditions disclaimer
    ----------------------------
    6. Education customers audit rights

    Apple routinely audits the purchases of customers at the Apple Store for Education to insure that only eligible purchases have ordered and that all purchase conditions have been observed. Should an audit disclose after delivery (or should Apple otherwise discover) that you were not an eligible purchaser at the time you placed your order or that you have not observed all of the conditions applicable to your purchase, you authorize Apple:

    * If you placed your order by credit card, to charge to your credit card the difference between the amount you paid for the delivered goods and the price that Apple charged the general public for the same goods at the Apple Store, in effect on the date that you placed your order; and

    * If you paid by a means other than credit card, to (a) invoice you for the difference between the amount that you paid for the delivered goods and the price that Apple charged the general public for the same goods at the Apple Store, payable in fifteen days from the date of the invoice, and (b), should you fail to pay the invoice when due, institute legal action against you in a court of competent jurisdiction, with the prevailing party entitled to attorneys' fees.

    * Should Apple not offer to the general public the specific products that you purchased at the Apple Store for education, your credit card will be charged or you will be invoiced the difference between the amount you paid for the delivered goods and the price that Apple charged the general public for the closest equivalent goods at the Apple Store, in effect on the date that you placed your order.

    Have made so many purchases with apple under the education scheme. Just go under the edu store and make your purchase. If need of verifications, they'll email/call you for your student id (can fax/email) them a scanned copy of it. That is if they contact you. Else, it goes through and your item(s) will be delivered to your doorstep soon.

    OF course, integrity is up to each individual bah.

    yup. only Apple Singapore (online) offers the edu discount. btw, those retailers aren't apple singapore thus they are not authorised to make such discounts.
