Why Macs?

The decision to go with a Macintosh laptop was reached after extensive research and testing. Apple computer recently released an innovative software program called Bootcamp. This program allows these computers to start up in both of the dominant operating systems in use today. The student will be able to run Macintosh OSX as well as Windows 7 operating system and software. Other features found standard on this computer will ensure that each student will be able to communicate, research, create, document, and present his/her work professionally.
