It may be the middle of July, but thousands of students across the country are looking forward to the day they move into college. New friends, an entire dorm room to decorate, and endless new opportunities. And do you know what else might be new for all those students? A brand new laptop!

It’s a must-have for students across the country. How else will you browse Facebook in order to avoid writing that paper until the day before it’s due? But, let’s be honest, none of us really want to shell out the money. A base model of a MacBook Pro can run you $1250! Sure, you’ll probably have the laptop for all your college years and then some, but that’s a big number staring you back in the face. That’s why Apple is here to sweeten the deal.

Now through September 25th, Apple is offering students the chance to get a free pair of Beats with the purchase of a Mac or iPad Pro. There are three different models you can choose from. You can opt for some basic earbuds like the BeatsX, a slightly sportier pair of earbuds with the Powerbeats, or you can go all the way to the top with that classic Beats look and get the Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones. Now if you’re staring at your computer thinking “but which shall I get?”, let us help. The solo3 headphones offer the biggest bang for your buck, normally running $300 a pair. If you just can’t do the whole headphones thing, the PowerBeats come in at $200 and the BeatsX normally run about $150.

You didn’t think Apple forgot about the educators, did you? This deal isn’t just for the students. This same deal applies to faculty and staff K-12, including elected or appointed school board members and PTA or PTO executives. And, of course, faculty and staff of higher education institutions can get in on the deal too. No matter who you are, student or staff, make sure you go prepared. We assume you’ll have to show some sort of proof because “yeah, sure, I’m a teacher” probably won’t get the job done.
