Will there be an education discount for ipad?
The discounts from Apple seem right around 10% of the retail price. The question is WILL it be available for discount. IMHO I think it will since this device has the education sector as one of its targets.I'd see maybe around $50. The mini, selling for $600, gets a $50 discount, and the MacBook at $999 gets a $100 discount.
That was why i assumed there would probably NOT be a discount - "big iPod".I think more than anything, whether they do provide a discount will be telling of how they see this product (is it a computer or an ipod?)
This won't work for us with the amount of video content going on the device.Even if you can get the 32GB version with education discount for slightly more than what 16GB standard price I would rather just get the entry model and then when it's time for the new second iPad to come out you don't feel to bad about handing it down to a family member.
Those aren't considered educational use despite the fact that there are lot of courses using iPod Touches as a tool.The iPhone, iPod Touch don't get educational discounts. If the do offer the educational discount this would be a great way to increase Apple's market share in Higher Ed.
Apple needs to stress that it's not just a big iPod. it does a lot more than an iPod can. and doesn't apple usually give away an iPod when you buy a macbook for college?That was why i assumed there would probably NOT be a discount - "big iPod".
$50-75 off and i'll jump to the next higher model probably!
