With the release of all of those new fancy Thunderbolt equipped Macs, Apple quietly got rid of their educational discount. Today they showed why.To be honest the educational discount was a bit of a joke. 10% and an iPod really did pale in comparison to some of the other educational deals out there (free printers, free xbox, 5 year replace anything warranty etc), but for those what wanted a Mac for school any little bit helps.
Well today Apple is releasing an “entry level” iMac for purchase. It doesn’t pack Thunderbolt and non up-gradable RAM, but it does have a smaller i3 processor and 250Gb of storage.
Details are apparently going up on their site today. Personally if I was going to buy a new desktop machine I would go for the higher up model that packs more punch.
