Apple sure is rife with the announcements lately. Not only did the tech company debut a new, scaled-down fifth-gen iPod touch for $229, but it also revealed that unit sales for its whole iPod touch line reached the 100 million mark.
What it didn’t announce was new education pricing for its entry-level MacBook Pro. Eagle-eyed 9to5Mac readers noticed Thursday that the non–Retina Display 13-inch 2.5 GHz laptop, which retails for $1,200, is being offered to students and teachers for $999. (Previously, that education discount made it available for $1,099.) But that’s not all. The next-level laptop, the 2.9GHz MacBook Pro, has also been reduced to $1,299. That’s $200 off retail.
Now, these prices are only available to customers who qualify for the education discount, but take heart — these probably aren’t the last discounts we’ll see. WWDC is right around the corner, which tends to spawn tons of savings on Apple current and last-gen products.
