I doubt there'll be a global price cut. As the existing models are replaced with faster/better modles, we might see a price reduction due to a more favourable exchange rate with the USD.

In my time as a teacher there were always (cheaper) Education prices for Macs which were never available to the general public. The Education sector being one of the foci of Apple's marketing strategy, it is not surprising that they wish to increase their reach in this direction by offering reduced prices. I can't see this applying elsewhere.
