Purchase Your Laptop

If you have declared teacher education as your major, if you are a transfer student, or if you have enrolled in an introduction to education course, you will need to purchase a required Apple laptop computer.

The recommended systems are available at Ball State University's Technology Store at discounted prices. The computers purchased at the Technology Store are bundled with Apple's three year extended hardware warranty that will protect your new laptop from mechanical failure for three years. This warranty also includes three years of phone support from Apple (1-800-APL-CARE). This warranty will NOT protect your machine against accidental damage caused by dropping, spilling liquids, or general mistreatment. You will need to purchase accidental damage insurance to protect against those kinds of damages.
