View Full Version : Apple announces cheaper iMac for Education

07-05-2006, 11:52 AM
Apple® today introduced a new $899 configuration of the 17-inch iMac® designed specifically for education customers featuring a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor, a built-in iSight™ video camera and iLife® ‘06, the next generation of Apple’s award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications. The 17-inch iMac for education is available immediately and will replace the eMac®, Apple’s last CRT based computer, providing students and teachers everything they need to learn and create in today's digital classroom, all in the ultra-efficient iMac design.
For $400 less than the entry-level consumer iMac, the college student gets integrated graphics (GMA 950), a Combo drive instead of the SuperDrive, a smaller hard disk, no Bluetooth, no remote, and no empty memory slots (the standard 512MB comes as two 256MB modules, so you'll have to throw one out if you upgrade.)

Sweet. I need a Mac not only to get away from PCs before Vista but for school. So this fits in right together! Is this available for high school students aswell?
