Apple Laptops

Apple’s education store allows students, faculty and staff to purchase computers, software, and select accessories at special prices. Newly accepted students, along with parents purchasing on behalf of their student, are also eligible.

Mac has everything you need for your studies. And study breaks.

You may have your order shipped directly to you, or you may pick it up at your local Apple retail store.

To view our recommended systems:

Recommended Apple systems provide:

  • A smart design that is durable for your college lifestyle and friendly to the environment.
  • Mac OS X, which comes with the security and reliability of built-in defenses against PC viruses.
  • Compatibility with Microsoft Office programs and the ability to run Windows.
  • Fun with photos, music, movies and more with pre-loaded iLife software.

You will also need:

  • The Microsoft Office suite, which is sold separately by the University to current students, faculty and staff at a heavily discounted price.
  • Installed and updated antivirus software (needed to join the campus network). ClamXav is the recommended freeware.

Apple systems include an AppleCare protection plan, which is a three-year hardware and software warranty. (Note: Accidental damage is not included.)

Laptops may be serviced at any Apple retail location or at the Student Technology Services Center in the McKillop Library. For hands-on help, visit the Apple support page

In addition to your Apple system, you may want to consider third-party accidental protection coverage (Apple and Salve Regina do not provide this coverage) and a protective case or cover.
