Apple recently dropped the MacBook's educational pricing, bringing the entry-level model down to $899. The additional $50 discount only applies to the 13-inch polycarbonate model which features a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and a seven-hour battery. MacBook Pro educational pricing still starts at $1,099, while the basic MacBook Air is available for $1,399.
The special pricing is limited to faculty, staff, students, and other select individuals associated with K-12 schools or higher-education institutions.
