Apple offers educational discount on iPads


Meh, probably not. Best Buy regularly has $50 off sales and Target % off sales+gift card. If you can score a price match, you can really get a sweet deal. I did this a couple of months ago and paid less for an iPad Air 32GB than I did my 32GB rMini.

You know, the beginning of the year I first asked about this because I wanted to get my hands on the ipad air for a little bit less and they didn't have this promotion. I'm glad they finally looked at it as an educational device and added it.
