Students will get a free pair of Beats Solo 3 Wireless headphones when buying a MacBookMacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac or Mac Pro plus 20 percent off the AppleCare Protection plan. And if you're thinking of getting an iPad Pro, then you can get a sizeable discount on that, too. 

Apple will also give you Powerbeats3 Wireless for free instead. There's also money off the Apple Pencil and the pro apps bundle which includes Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3.
