Though to be honest, most companies don't check if you're a student or not. They don't care. If the small discount is enough incentive to get you to buy a more expensive product, they'll still benefit.
It was a bit surprising when I ordered a Macbook from Apple yesturday. I went into their education store and they didn't ask for any identification, email whatsoever. I clicked in, bought, and they shipped it out. :)
I'll be returning that one too though, since it is still cheaper with Best Buy's sale.
