iLife & Keynote for $15 for Teachers

Send Article to a Friend

iLife & Keynote for $15 for Teachers -- Following on the heels of providing Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar for free to teachers (a promotion that Apple has extended through 31-Mar-03), Apple is now offering the entire iLife suite plus Apple's new Keynote presentation program for a mere $15 (a savings of $113). To qualify, you must be either a K-12 teacher or a full-time faculty member at a higher education institution. Unfortunately, the offer is good only in the U.S., and the software can be delivered only to your school's address. [ACE]
