Free webinars: Unlock creativity in specialist subjects with the power and performance of Apple Mac

Better than ever for the creative curriculum

Mac is built with engineers, artists and designers in mind. And that includes the students of today, who'll become the creative professionals of tomorrow. Its high-performance graphics and highly powered processors are perfect for creative students, coders and writers. Mac is packed with advanced storage and memory, so is perfect for the most ambitious, collaborative projects in class.

And what's more, the brand new Apple M1 iMac range packs an even bigger punch thanks to the new M1 chip

It's the most powerful Apple has ever created and the first chip designed specifically for Mac, delivering amazing performance for the power-hungry apps used in specialist subjects like music, art and design. It's also equipped with a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display for superb levels of life-like clarity.  Combined with a range of new funky colours, the new iMac brings learning to life in a whole new way.
