    I am about to purchase a MacBook from the apple education store, and I want to also get this case

    http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebO...TKD9KU7DD7KYK7A

    But I'm buying my MacBook from the education store, and this doesn't show up in the education store, only the regular store.

    I wouldn't mind getting this one (which shows up in the education store) http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebO...TKD9KU7DD7KYK7A but the shipping time is 1-2 weeks, and I am afraid they will ship all my items together, which means my MacBook ships in 1-2 weeks as opposed to 1-2 days.

    Can anyone tell me if they will ship the case out separately? Or if there is some way for me to get the black case to show up in the education store? Thanks

    I'm pretty sure they ship out separately, don't take my word for it though.

    But why don't you just get the black case from the normal store? There doesn't seem to be a price difference.

    And if you're willing to wait 2 weeks for case, then...

    I don't mind ordering from the non-education store, its just I would have to pay for shipping on the case, and have two separate orders going through. I will give those DX cases a look, thanks for the links

    I just got my macbook I ordered from the Education store in 2 days total. I ordered it along with some cabling, and they both shipped separately.

    Okay, so I just ordered, and it says it will ship the items as they become available, just incase anyone was wondering lol.

    Now, I have to wait for it to come! Blah, worst part of ordering stuff on the internet
