    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......

    That's not a lot really. They should always receive a discount. I am surprised.

    Thy probably always do receive a discount, only at a lower price. That price quoted is probably a special one off.

    Imagine a 300$ Mac Mini. Maybe I'll work at Apple in the future.

    That would be nice. Apple has been very successful as of late - I support that discount for employees.

    Should be more though like a 25% or more discount on all products all the time. I used to work in retail. I guess they are afraid of employees buying for their friends??

    They probably are scared of that and rightfully so. Heck, employees could even make a few bucks off of other people if they could buy more than one item. Great deal though, wish I worked there. :)
