The Apple Store for Education changed its pricing on Thursday, dropping an additional $100 off the regular cost of a 2.5-gigahertz 13-inch MacBook Pro. That model now sells for $999, or $200 below the retail cost for non-educational customers.

The 2.9-gigahertz MacBook Pro is also available for $200 off retail, starting at $1,299. The discount, so far, applies only to Apple's non-Retina MacBook Pro models.

The 2.5-gigahertz model has an Intel Core i5 processor that can Turbo Boos up to 3.1GHz. It also comes with 4 gigabytes of RAM, a 500-gigabyte 5400rpm hard drive, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip, and a 7-hour battery life.

The 2.9-gigahertz model has a Core i7 chip that can Turbo Boost up to 3.6-gigahertz, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 750-gigabyte hard drive.

Thursday also saw Apple adding a new iPod touch model to its lineup of iOS devices. The new model is a more stripped-down version, as it does not have a rear-facing camera, and it replaces the now-discontinued fourth-generation iPod touch.

Apple's latest discounts are meant only for educational customers, but traditional shoppers can turn to the AppleInsider Mac Price Guide, which features aggressive discounts from Apple-authorized resellers. MacMall and B&H also offer discounts on Macs purchased with AppleCare extended warranties.
