Did you family member order it on the education store? If not they wouldn't qualify so would definitely have to return/rebuy. If you received it already you mightl have to return/rebuy, but I'm not sure. The other person was able to edit their order easily because it hadn't been delivered yet. Either way Apple is pretty accommodating if you're within the return window it won't be too much of a PITA to get it.

Damn, i bought a 2020 Ipad Pro on 20 May. Deal masters here, is there a way I can still get in on this deal? I think my return period from the Apple store is 2 weeks?

Some campuses are starting up faster due to condensed spring term in the US.

Now to see if Microsoft will follow suit and offer better pricing on Surface line.

Wait for the physical stores to open and ask them.

AFAIK, all campuses in BC aren’t going to be opening up for a while (next year at the earliest I believe). Not sure what the heck a province with so many more cases like Ontario is thinking.

The "next step up" MacBook Air is a significant upgrade - going from the dual-core processor to the quad-core is a major difference and will help with the laptop's longevity. It's $400 but well worth considering.

Between the quad-core Air and entry-level Pro, it comes down to your usage. If you do things that require sustained CPU usage at all, the Pro will serve you better as it has a cooling system that has more hope of keeping up with those workloads. Otherwise, the Air has twice the SSD storage at that price, and is marginally thinner/lighter.

It's an honor system. They don't check
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I’m in Montreal, it’s not opening anytime soon sadly. I will call and ask, but I was hoping some deal guru here who knows the system can suggest a way of doing this that gives me a better chance of getting this deal.

Air is really good performance wise, heck it scores more than MBP 16 in single core geekbench as it got 10th gen CPU with LPDDR4 RAM. Issue is cooling solution, fan is not placed right atop on heatsinks. So it runs kinda hot all the time.

Pro has 2 tiers, cheaper one is basically last gen MBP13 with upgraded keyboard. No performance gains, still running 8th gen CPU with LPDDR3. Expensive one is really nice but price wise is so close to MBP 16.

Why not get her the regular iPad + Apple Pencil 1? I can't imagine a situation where a 10 year old would need the power of an iPad Pro
