Apple Computer offers a discount for "teachers".

Has anyone gotten the discount as a homeschool "teacher"?

If you shop at an Apple store, the employee's should know about this as well.

Yes, you should be able to with no problem, but I've found that the discount has dwindled over the years and really isn't much anymore. I actually got a way better price this time by going through MacConnection. They've been in business a loooong time and are very reputable.

Yes, last July I got the educator discount on my iMac, One-to-One training, MobileMe service, and printer. I would have gotten a discount if I had purchased Microsoft Office (but I'm happy with the iWork software). I also got a free iPod Touch (which they're offering again this year). For proof, all I did was bring in a copy of my online state homeschool registration, but no one actually looked at it. They took my word for it.

For what it's worth, Apple also has a military discount up to 17% (the 17% was quoted on the Army Times website). Technically, the military discount is a "federal employees" discount.

Very good to know. I'm a Mac girl but have been living in my husband's PC world for 8 years. When this beast dies, we're going back to Mac!
