Apple to offer employees a $500 discount on Macs, $250 off of an iPad

Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly said during an Apple Town Hall meeting on Wednesday that Apple employees will receive a generous discount on Apple products in return for their hard work. Employees typically receive a 25% discount off of hardware, but they will soon be able to purchase a new Mac computer at a $500 discount or an iPad with a $250 discount, 9to5Mac reported. Employees must have worked with the company for a minimum of 30 days and can only take advantage of the deal once every three years, and they should be able to take advantage of the new deals beginning this June.

RIM reportedly offering BlackBerry PlayBook to employees for just $99

Research In Motion is reportedly offering its 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook to employees for as little as $99 through an employee-only website. The company is also selling its 32GB model for $149 and the 64GB model for $199, The Verge said Monday, noting that employees can order up to eight units each. PlayBook fans can still pick up a unit at a deep discount even without being on RIM’s payroll. The company recently slashed as much as $300 off of the tablet in an effort to gain consumer attention ahead of the holiday season; the 16GB PlayBook model can be purchased for $199.99 from Best Buy, RadioShack and Walmart, although Best Buy has confirmed with CNET that its initial supply is already depleted and that more units will be stocked in the “near future.” Additionally, RIM recently announced a promotion during which it will provide a free 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook to businesses that upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) v5.0 between now and December 31st.
