Maine orders 64,000 laptops
Posted by: Justina Spencer
The Maine Department of Education yesterday said it has ordered more than 64,000 Apple laptops for students and faculty in grades 7 through 12, and will place an additional order for up to 7,000 more laptops in the coming weeks.

The state "got a great deal" on the Apple MacBooks, David Connerty-Marin, a spokesperson for the Maine DOE, told Mainebiz. The state is paying $242 per unit, per year for four years, which equals $968 per unit, Connerty-Marin said. That makes the total order roughly $62 million. The laptop package provided by Apple includes a wide array of educational software, professional development, repair and replacement and technical support.
