Earlier this week we reported that Apple is offering a trade-up program in which owners of the PowerBook 5300 and PowerBook 190 can purchase a 400 MHz PowerBook G3 equipped with FireWire for US$1,599. However, the company is already offering education customers the $1,599 price on the PowerBook G3 outright, with no trade-up involved.
What’s more, the portable comes with an AirPort card. For $1499, you can buy one without the AirPort card. However, Apple says that those who want to take advantage of this deal should do so quickly as supplies are limited.
Educators should contact their Apple account executive for details. The Apple K-12 is located at https://www.apple.com/education/k12/.
