Apple's Academic Pricing

I've put in my request (to the school) for one of Apple's new 12" PowerBooks (so sweet). In the past I've only perused Apple's education discounts under the "shop for yourself" scenario ($100 savings on the PB). I was suprised when I used the "shop for your school" that the discount was $300 on the PB. That is quite a discount.

The base model 12" PowerBook rings up at $1499.

But of course, instead of saving $ on it I'll jack up the ram, disk and other accessories.

Lest one should be tempted, I have purchased under Apple's education plan before and they do go through some checks to verify educational affiliation. Trying to remember, but I think I had to fax in my student id. Not sure if they called the school or not.
