Apple Introduces Education Pricing for iPad Air and Retina iPad Mini, Now Starting at $469 and $379

Apple has introduced reduced education pricing for the iPad Air and Retina iPad Mini, offering both tablets at starting prices of $469 and $379, reports iGeneration (Google Translate).

With both iPads still showing a standard retail price starting at $499 and $399, the new education pricing totals to a $30 discount on the iPad Air and $20 discount on the Retina iPad mini and marks the first time that Apple has included the iPad in the special program. Apple is also offering special education pricing on the first-generation iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad, as well as deals on refurbished previous generation iPads.

Apple previously cut education pricing on the non-Retina 13-Inch MacBook Pro to $999 last year, and also offers discounts on the entire Mac line in its education store. The discounted education pricing is available to employees of K-12 schools as well as faculty, staff, students, and parents of students at higher education institutions.

When you're a student, £5 makes the different between being able to afford a kebab after a night out, and not being able to afford a kebab after a night out :D

You don't buy a £400+ iPad if you can't fully afford a £5 kebab.

Apple's education discounts are a bad joke if compared to other brands.

Not much of a saving, though. £5 off through education store is barely worth the effort...

They've been reducing the edu discounts in general, so its nice to see them hopefully make it more affordable for students.

A $30 discount on a $400 device not really making it "more affordable"... If that's the make or break to buying one, probably shouldn't be at all.

I hope they will be cancelling the discount. I don't want to see Apple going bankrupt. :(
