It's bullshit that the friends and family discount can be so close to that of a student. And if they want AppleCare then EPP2 offers pretty much nothing at all. That's why I used to get EVERYTHING on EPP1. My mum used to work with this guy who got his cat off his former roommate's cousin, well this cousin's ex-girlfriend had a brother that needed a MacBook for his mate, and that dude got EPP1.
But now they've changed it so you have to sign in with your AppleConnect. Bum.
