Actually, there is. Much of the third-party hardware stuff doesn't get discounted. And there's better deals to be found on educational-licensed third-party software.

Apple refurbs (click the red Sale tag) are usually cheaper as well.

As to it not being worth the hassle, umm...what hassle exactly? Aside from clicking a couple extra times to GET to the edu store, it's exactly like shopping from the regular Apple store. If you a eligible, why not?

Yeah, all software. You have to use the ONLINE Apple Store for that

If you are a student, you can get Student ADC from developer.apple.com for ~100 dollars (not sure what the subscription fee is in England) and buy the G5s for 1399, 1899, 2299 pounds respectively.
