Apple’s back to university campaign is pretty straightforward — if you buy a Mac with education pricing, which already saves you up to $280 on the RRP, you’ll also get a $259.95 pair of Beats Solo2 headphones (which are actually pretty good, especially if they’re free). You can choose from Gloss Black, Gloss White, Gloss Red, Gloss Blue colours and receive them alongside your online purchase.

If you want a wireless pair of ‘phones, though, you can add the Solo2 Wireless to your cart and have a $259.95 discount applied to them, making them $140. This deal runs until March 21, so there’s no rush, and you can either buy online (through the education portal) or in Apple’s retail stores around the country. Of course, you have to be a uni student, have been accepted into a uni, a parent buying for a uni student, a teacher or lecturer or other member of staff. [Apple]
