I'm guessing there's a few of you out there with children heading to Uni this year. No doubt they'll probably be wanting a MacBook Air or Pro. Personally, I'd sell the Beats to get a nice discount on the Mac.

Here's an example. MacBook Air 13" is $1569 with the $80 education discount. Solo3 RRP is $460, but $330 is the cheapest available. You can probably get $250 if you sell them. Making the MacBook Air $1319.

You can also get an iPad Pro for $1069, but you only get BeatsX (worth $187) free.

I've posted this as a deal on Choice Cheapies, there's more info over there.

If your children are wanting Macbooks, or any other Apple products, hang your head in shame because you clearly haven't raised them right :-P

Sometimes its not a case of want, but need for their school.

That's a lot of profit margin in those products at normal prices!
