Apple Offers iBook To Education Buyers For US$899 Until December 23rd

by , 4:40 PM EST, December 12th, 2002

Apple has introduced another promo for the education market, the entry level iBook for US$899. That iBook is retailed for US$999, and the normal education price is US$949. The offer:

Get a qualifying iBook 600Mhz with 128MB of memory, a 20GB hard drive, CD-ROM drive, and 12.1” TFT screen for only $899 while supplies last. Buy now -- limited quantities are available at this incredible price.

Customers must purchase qualifying promotional products from December 2, 2002, through December 23, 2002, or while supplies last from the Apple Store for Education Individuals. Savings are included in the purchase price.

Qualifying products:
M8600LL/A - iBook
(12.1"TFT/600MHz/512K L2/128MB/20GB/CD-ROM/VGA-out/Enet/56K/Mac OS X)

Note that you must be a qualifying education customer to take advantage of this offer.

How to get the deal

To get the offer, hit Apple's Hot Deals for Education Web page. Click on the "Special Offer" tile with the iBook. That page has the offer, and from there, you should click on the "Buy Now" button. On that page, you must click on one of the two links for buying for an individual. If you click on the links for buying for a school, you won't be able to find the proper deal. Once you land on the Apple Store for Education page, look for the "Special Offer" tile in the left hand column. Click on that link, with the price of US$899, in order to actually get the deal.

The Mac Observer Spin:

An iBook for US$899 is a pretty big deal, and is a significant milestone for Apple, even if it is limited to Education customers. The company is obviously intent on stepping up sales this quarter.
