Apple's Educational iMac

"Apple quietly launched a lower-price 21-inch iMac on its Apple Store for Higher Education - seemingly in time to capture some of the lucrative back-to-school market. My question: Does anyone still buy desktop computers for students going to college?"

I'd say no. These days I can't imagine students wanting anything other than a laptop. And this is a scaled down version so for $200.00 USD you can get a much better machine. Faster CPU, double hard drive space, double RAM and double the video RAM. I'd spend the extra $200.00 USD to get that much more capability, wouldn't you?

Best Buy Also Offering Back to School Promo to Match Apple's

"Readers who are disappointed with Apple's new Back to School promotion may be interested to hear that electronics retailer Best Buy is offering to match Apple's promotion with their own."

You won't get this one automatically, it's an unadvertised special deal so you will have to ask for it. You might even get the educational discount on the merchandise if you ask for that too...as they say nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Back to School Promo Begins at Apple

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 05:36 AM

"As expected, Apple on Thursday began its annual back-to-school sale, offering students a $100 Mac App Store gift card along with the purchase of a qualifying Mac."

No free iPod Touch this year, but you do get $100.00 USD gift card to spend at the Mac App Store. Oh and that educational discount, which I've found to be around $100.00 USD also, more or less, depending on the hardware you purchase. You have until September 20, 2011 to take advantage of the deal, and to qualify you just have to be a college student or accepted to college, a parent of a student or faculty or staff at any grade level.

Apple Begins Back to School Promotion

"It's that time of year again! Apple's throwing a bone (or, alternatively, trying to lock-in) green undergrads heading to college for the first time with their annual "Back to School" program, which nets eligible students a free 8GB iPod Touch (or $199 off any other iPod)."

The promo runs through September 7th, and your "free" iPod is actually in the form of a rebate so you will have to wait for about 90 days before it actually becomes free. And you have to meet some eligibility requirements as well as purchase from the Education Store at Apple.
