Well, I'm currently living in Ankara, Turkey. I teach third grade. My iBook just crashed and I've been blessed with the means to get a new MacBook. But I have a few questions before leaving Turkey and going to the States - where I will make my new purchase!

1. I am a teacher. But I teach overseas. Do I still qualify for an education discount? If so, what do I need to show my eligibility?

2. Do you think there will be a problem getting the MB right away? Like, will most stores have them in the store next week? It's a few days before Christmas, or I might wait til right after Christmas, but either way, there's a rush. Just thought I'd get your thoughts.

3. Recommend any upgrades or anything special for a teacher, big time traveller, and music/photo lover? I do plan to make iMovies and such.

OK, thanks! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I haven't even seen the new MB in person. But I'm sold, and in love, already!

All Apple Stores will have MacBooks. You will also need a lot of ram

1) Ring them
2) Ring before hand, cant hurt to check!
3) Office 2004 Student/Teacher edition = $129 or something REALLY cheap and flickr! Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing for photos.
Oh and get a sleeve if you travel.
Try to go for 2gb ram, but im sure 1gb will suffice. (2gb rocks though)

If you order online you don't actually have to prove that you qualify for an education discount, but you didn't hear it from me
