Just in time for back-to-school shopping, college students can save on the new 15-inch MacBook Air with education pricing through Apple Retail, and receive an Apple Gift Card of $150.

Beginning today, the new 15-inch MacBook Air, Mac Studio, and Mac Pro powered by Apple silicon are now available. With an expansive 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display, the performance of M2, and all-day battery life in a thin and light, fanless design, the new MacBook Air is the world's best 15-inch laptop. With M2 Max and the new M2 Ultra, Mac Studio is a performance powerhouse in a compact design. The new Mac Pro combines the incredibly powerful M2 Ultra with PCIe expansion, and also marks the completion of the Mac transition to Apple silicon. For Intel-based Mac users, every Mac is now a gigantic upgrade. And for PC users, there has never been a better time to switch to a Mac.
