Apple offers budget, EDU-only 13" MacBook Air as white MacBook replacement

Apple logoApple officially removed the last vestiges of its white, polycarbonate MacBook earlier this week, which had been a budget offering only available to education institutions since last July. Serving as somewhat of a replacement, Apple is now offering a $999, stripped-down 13" MacBook Air to schools that purchase in bulk quantities.

The new EDU-only 13" MacBook Air essentially matches internal specs with the current entry-level 11" MacBook Air, as noted by MacRumors. It comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 2GB of non-upgradeable RAM, and a 64GB SSD. However, it comes equipped with a 13.3" 1440x900 pixel display. Apple offers the machine in a five-pack for $4,995, or in 10- or 20-packs that come with a laptop cart and an AirPort Extreme base station ($11,399 or $21,599, respectively).

Apple is offering three other standard MacBook Air configurations in five-pack bundles, with or without AppleCare. The bundles save schools an extra $20 per machine over purchasing individually.
