    i want to try writing (or learning how to write) some OS X apps. i guess i have to become an ADC member to get the dev tools. has anyone here messed with the dev tools? just curious since i'm gonna do this. also, i understand ADC members can buy 1 computer at a substantial discount for development purposes. is that true? and how big is the discount?

    Dev tools are free. Just sign up and don't include all the other info. I have an ADC account that lets me get the newest dev tools.

    An official ADC account let's you buy one computer/monitor package per lifetime at quite a substantial discount.

    3500 USD a year for a 10-20% discount, plus free dev tools and tech support :eek:

    am I missing some thing?

    Yes, you're missing the fact that every year you can buy 10 computers at that discount (usually 20% for desktop machines) plus you get early/frequent seeds of OSes and Apps which the non-paying developers do not get.
    Oh, and they'll actually respond to paying developers' questions and help with technical questions.

    I think that was the student account. You have to be going to a recognized post-secondary institution and be able to prove that you're taking computer science courses.

    I've been a member for a long time, never signed up for the paying membership though. I don't remember what they asked for when I signed up. I was in HS then, so it's been a while.
