On Friday, the company clarified its policies, saying that businesses can purchase a minimum of 20 licenses at the full price of $29.99, while schools and universities can get a minimum of 25 licenses for the “Mac Software Collection,” which includes iLife and iWork, for $39 per license.

Computerworld reported that these prices are higher than the current Snow Leopard-based licenses, which are about $36 each or $899 for 25.

Apple has also changed its annual back-to-school laptop deal, offering a $100 gift card to use on the App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes or iBook store with a new laptop, instead of its traditional offer of a free iPod.
