SUBJECT: Discount on Technology Purchases

The recently awarded Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) competitive grants include a significant number of iPod touch and supporting Apple products. Apple has agreed to provide a volume discount on these purchases. The Department of Education has negotiated with Apple to extend this discount to all schools in the Commonwealth.

The four education bundles available at discounted prices are described in the attached document. The pricing for these bundles reflect an additional 14 percent discount from the standard Apple education discount. This offer is valid until February 26, 2010.
