Apple education pricing is a great way for students, faculty and staff to purchase Mac computers, Apple software, and select accessories at special prices for personal use. To test drive a Mac, visit Tech Cyte at the University Book Store in the ISU Memorial Union. We're open 7 days a week during the semester. See our events calendar for more information about our store hours.

Why choose Apple?

Built on the world's most advanced operating system, the Mac is as easy to use as it is powerful. And, no matter what your area of specialty is, it's great because you get:

  • A smart design that is durable for any lifestyle, and friendly to the environment.
  • Mac OS X that comes with the security and reliability of built-in defenses against PC viruses.
  • Compatibility with Microsoft Office programs and the ability to run Windows too.
  • Fun with photos, music, movies and more with pre-loaded iLife software.
