13-inch MacBook Pro prices for education customers dropped by $100

Education customers looking for a new Mac could do worse than picking up a 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro following a set of price cuts. $100 has been chopped from the price of both spec 13-inch Pro's, with the cheapest now costing $999.

For that, you get the 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. Add $300 to that and you can pick up the 2.9GHz Intel Core i7 version with 8GB of RAM and a 750GB hard drive. The price cuts on these two MacBook Pro's puts them now $200 below the consumer retail price, which is quite a saving to be had for education customers.

The pricing on the 15-inch non-Retina and 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro's remains unchanged. This comes of course follows the news that Apple announced the new, cheaper 5th Generation iPod Touch. Anyone out there going to jump on this one for school? Or perhaps a present for a lucky son or daughter?
