If you're head over heels for an iPad, it will pay to be a teacher or some other figure in an educational institution.

This is because, like it has done in the past with its laptops and other hardware, Apple is offering discounted iPad 10-packs for educators. The packs are available in these configurations:

BF822LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (16GB) $4,790
BF825LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (16GB) with AppleCare Protection Plan for iPad - Auto Enroll $5,580
BF823LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (32GB) $5,790
BF826LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (32GB) with AppleCare Protection Plan for iPad - Auto Enroll $6,580
BF824LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (64GB) $6,790
BF827LL/A: iPad Wi-Fi (64GB) with AppleCare Protection Plan for iPad - Auto Enroll $7,580

MacRumors reports that there are no discounts for individual iPad orders, so, um, be sure to have a class/organization size of at least 10. [MacRumors]
