Maine strikes iBook deal

Apple today that will offer iBooks to about one-third of Maine's public high schools this fall, according to the Associated Press. The report indicates that Apple reduced the participation level from a minimum 8,400 laptops to 6,000 laptops without changing its annual rental price of $300--which is the same low price it charged for laptops in Maine's 242 middle schools. "The price includes servers and repairs, and Apple also will provide training and assist in installing the wireless networks that link the computers. About 35 to 40 of the state's 119 high schools will take part [and] are scattered throughout the state and offer a diverse economic mix."
