- Mac OS X that comes with the security and reliability of built-in defenses against PC viruses.
- Compatibility with Microsoft Office programs and the ability to run Windows, too.
- Both Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows can be purchased for $25 through the College.
- Fun with photos, music, movies, and more with pre-loaded iLife software.
Apple also gives you 90 days of complimentary telephone support and a year of repair coverage. You can extend your coverage with AppleCare Protection Plan. For hands-on Help, visit the Apple Support page or the IT Helpdesk in Accinno 115.
