THE OFFICIAL COMMUNITY FOR DIGITAL MEDIA ACADEMY

Apple’s $999 iMac

It just got cheaper to integrate technology into the classroom. On Monday, Apple quietly announced a $999 iMac. The machine is $150 less than Apple’s retail iMac, but it’s only available for educators and learning institutions.


Missing from the computer is Apple’s new Thunderbolt port but it’s loaded with everything else, including OS X Lion, an Intel Dual-Core i3 processor, a 250-GB hard drive and 2 GB of RAM –  all making magic on a 21-inch LCD display.

An Apple For the Teacher
Apple has always believed in supporting educators by offering great deals on Mac hardware for educators. Apple originally offered educator’s Mac’s in 2006. Apple still offers its previous education iMac at $899. The computer sports a 20-inch display and comes with 2GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard drive; it runs the OS X Snow Leopard. A lower-performance machine like this might be used in libraries and labs.

Great Mac-to-School Book Deals
Looking for a great deal on a computer or digital media gear? Digital Media Academy is selling like-new MacBook Pro’s and professional Sony video cameras that were gently used for a few weeks in their summer digital media camps.
