The Retina iPad mini has also been discounted for students and educators, just slightly less than the Air. Normally starting at $399, the iPad mini with Retina display starts at $379 — $20 off — on the higher education store

Other iPads, MacBooks and other Apple hardware are also discounted on the company's higher education store.

Students who have been accepted to college are also eligible.
