Apple’s Macintosh Products Guide
has been signing up online retailers to offer Mac users bundle pricing on Apple and third-party products for the last eight months. Today, they expanded their reach a little farther.
Joining Apple as an online partner is
Educational Resources; as the name implies, this company is focused on the academic customer. Educational Resources kicked off its first day with Apple by offering educator bundles including Inspiration for Students, which includes Inspiration and Inspiration Training Flip Chart; Inspiration for Teachers, which includes Inspiration, Inspiration Classroom Activities, Inspiration Training Guide; and several more products that can be found online.
Unlike Apple’s other online partners, you will need to provide proof of your academic standing when using the Educational Resources site.
The “Hot Deals” Web site is a place for Mac users to find special prices on hardware and software bundles from Apple’s retail partners. Apple’s online retail partners include CompUSA, MacMall, MacConnection, MacZone, J&R’s OutPost, ClubMac and the Apple Online Store.
Details on each of these companies
can be found at Apple’s Macintosh Product Guide Web site.
Apple’s Macintosh Products Guide is a searchable database containing thousands of Mac products. Since before the introduction of OS X in March, the Products Guide has been tracking applications coming to the new operating system, in addition to those that will work with the Classic Mac OS.
