    Does anyone know where I can get a discount on the iPad 2? I went to Apple and my college ID doesn't give a discount on the iPad. Just wondering because I really want one but 499 is a little steep for me. Thanks!

    They are going to be the same price wherever you buy it. The price is set by Apple. Apple does give discounts to college students on computers, but thats about it.

    Sad to say the only 'discounts' I have seen on iPads are at places like SAMs / Costco type stores. I saved a whopping $11 on my iPad 1.

    Really! They must "eat" the difference because as far as I know the price has to be the same everywhere.

    That's what I always thought too. Right now SAMs has the iPad 1 16gb wifi for $388, not the normal $399.

    Apple does have some corporate discounts (EPP). I got a whopping 2% off my iPad 2. Accessories are 10% off.

    ATT has (or had) the iPad 1 discounted. A 64g wifi 3G was $529. That's 300 off the regular price.

    Nice. Discounts are always good! Funny how I was just on Apple and they praise how useful it is for school, yet they don't give a school discount for it.

    Yeah, I'm also in Grad school and my educational discount is nothing compared to the corporate one.

    Absolutely, but I guess it also depends on how much other stuff you have on there. I highly doubt you'll run into any space issues.

    Thank you, yes I have an iPod so mostly everything will stay on iPod, and I'll just put on Eic and facebook. Little stuff because I want it mostly for school books. Thanks
