The new MacBook Air with the M2 Apple silicon chip in a thin and light design starts at $1,099 with Apple's education discount. With the $150 bonus gift card, that means the ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ essentially costs $949, and the M1 version can be had for even less. Additionally, Apple is offering a 20% discount on the three-year AppleCare+ service for Mac at $183.

MacBook Pro and 24-inch iMac

With the $150 gift card after purchase, the 13-inch MacBook Pro will essentially cost customers $1,049, the 14-inch $1,699, and the 16-inch $2,149. The 13-inch comes with the new ‌M2‌ Apple silicon chip, while the 14-inch and 16-inch models come with M1 Pro and M1 Max chip options. The 24-inch ‌M1‌ iMac is also available starting at the equivalent of $1,099 once the $150 gift card is accounted for.

iPad Air and iPad Pro

The ‌iPad Air‌ and ‌iPad Pro‌ come with the ‌M1‌ Apple silicon chip, offering more performance than older models. Both iPads come with a $50 discount for education customers in addition to the $100 promotional gift card. The ‌iPad Pro‌, offered in 11-inch, and 12.9-inch sizes, comes with more advanced displays and the addition of the LiDAR scanner compared to the 10.9-inch ‌iPad Air‌. Both iPad lines support the second-generation Apple Pencil and the Magic Keyboard.

Apple is expected to announce updated 11-inch and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models with the ‌M2‌ Apple silicon chip as soon as next month, and there is also a possibility of updated 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Even with new models on the horizon, the Back to School promotion offers customers a great opportunity to get the current-generation models with the added benefit of gift cards.

New Macs are coming out? I know iPads are, just didn't know about Macs. Is it a new iMac, MBP, MBA, etc?

I'm still fighting with my thoughts. Buying this one with edu offer or waiting for the new shiny one next month.

Still no decent info about major improvements which would justify potential price increases (I'm from Europe).
