Apple raises Leopard Academic price
One of the many benefits to working in Higher Ed (as I do), or being a student (other than all that book learnin') is Academically Priced software. Many software vendors offer up their products that significantly lower prices for people in the academic circle. Apple has long done this, but it seems they have adjusted their pricing. Tiger cost a mere $79 with the academic discount, but sadly that steep discount it gone.
Numerous readers have emailed us the new academic price for Leopard: $116. That's right, if you're a student Apple understands you have a budget and will gladly knock $13 off the sticker price.
While this price increase is bound to make some folks grumble, Leopard is a pretty sweet deal even at full price.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
Update: See this post for the latest news. It boils down to this: the price is higher on Apple's EDU store, but will probably still be cheap in your school's bookstore.
