Apple iMac for Students Less Than $1,000
Apple has announced a new version of its iMac desktop that is aimed at students. What's more, it actually costs less than $1,000.
Lengthy arguments about the existence of an "Apple tax" aside, Apple's computers are generally more expensive than the competition, so a sub-$1,000 iMac with decent specs is still remarkable.
The new iMac sports a 3.1GHz Intel i3 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 250GB of storage and an AMD Radeon HD 6750 graphics processor. All that comes inside a 21.5-inch display.
Pricing starts at $999, but keep in mind that this is a desktop. Many students prefer portability over screen size, so the new MacBook Air , also starting at $999, might be a more attractive option for students. Regardless, the education-oriented iMac is available to students now on Apple's website.
