Laptops in Maine schools
The Maine Department of Education today is making plans to just two months later. Next month, Maine's Department of Education will offer the program up to bidders for another four-year plan, according to a report from the Associated Press. The state can pay approximately eight million dollars to continue the Apple contract as-is, but for another two million Apple will reportedly replace all 34,000 laptops with new models. In the event that no new bidders win the contract, the state will default to extending the program with Apple's current lease agreement.
