Back to School! Apple Launches iMac for Education

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – There’s good news for teachers. Apple has reportedly made a new iMac available for a lower price to educators, this according to 9to5Mac. The computer is 3.1 GHz and Apple is offering it to schools for a bit less than one thousand dollars.

The new iMac also has a 21.5 inch screen. Meanwhile, there’s a good reason for the lower cost. According to 9to5mac, the new iMac has less memory than the ones that are commercially available.

However, according to some reports, purchasing the new iMac will require the buyer to be authorized as an educational institution. Schools have long sought computers that are inexpensive yet reliable for both faculty members and for student computer labs.

Apple launched the original iMac in 1998 with its G3 (You may remember it as the computer that was originally available in all the different colors).
