In terms of the best student laptop, there are plenty of options. But MacBooks are all over university campuses (and a lot of other places, too) – and Apple’s annual student offer/back-to-school promotion is surely one reason why.
Apple already offers an educational discount on devices, but in late summer, the deal gets even sweeter. As usual, eligible students, teachers, and other educational staff can save on a new Mac computer (laptop or desktop), or on a new iPad. Of course you can also customise your Mac through the store, too.
For example, you can get an M1 MacBook Air from $899/£899 – though it’s always worth checking other retailers as Amazon has been selling that model for less or equivalent to that price recently (US/UK).
The deal is available only via the education store and runs from today through 23 October. So if you’re a student or teacher on the fence about a new Mac or iPad, and you’ve wanted to buy something else to go with it, now’s the time to pounce.
In addition, you can get 20% off AppleCare+ to protect your purchase. Plus you’ll also get three months free of Apple Music and Apple TV+ with the subsequent monthly fee being at a reduced student discount after.
