Yet another reason to be in the education market if you can help it.
Per AppleInsider, Apple on Thursday dropped the education buyer price for its default configuration non-Retina MacBook Pros by an additional US$100, and customers can now pick up the notebooks starting at under US$1,000.
The Apple Store for Education changed its pricing on Thursday, dropping an additional US$100 off the regular cost of a 2.5-gigahertz 13-inch MacBook Pro. That model now sells for US$999, or US$200 below the retail cost for non-educational customers.
The 2.9-gigahertz MacBook Pro is also available for US$200 off retail, starting at US$1,299. The discount, so far, applies only to Apple’s non-Retina MacBook Pro models.
The 2.5-gigahertz model has an Intel Core i5 processor that can Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz. It also comes with 4 gigabytes of RAM, a 500-gigabyte 5400rpm hard drive, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip, and a 7-hour battery life.
The 2.9-gigahertz model has a Core i7 chip that can Turbo Boost up to 3.6-gigahertz, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 750-gigabyte hard drive.
Apple’s latest discounts are meant only for educational customers.
