Good move, although I think it should have been introduced months ago when many school systems started educational buying for the back-to-school period (Aug-Sept) (via MacMinute)
Apple today introduced a new US$899 configuration of the 17-inch iMac designed specifically for education customers featuring a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor, a built-in iSight video camera and iLife '06, the next generation of Apple's suite of digital lifestyle applications. The 17-inch iMac for education is available immediately and will replace the eMac, Apple's last CRT based computer, providing students and teachers everything they need to learn and create in today's digital classroom, all in the ultra-efficient iMac design, notes Apple. Build-to-order options and accessories include up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, 160GB Serial ATA hard drive, iWork '06 (pre-installed), Apple Remote and Apple USB Modem.
