Over the summer, my college is going to be replacing nearly all of the computers (PC and Mac) on campus, including over 400 Macs. I know that the PCs are leased from a vender, however, the Macs are bought from Apple. A couple of days ago, I emailed IT and asked if they planned on selling any of the used Macs to students/faculty, but the reply I got was not what I was hoping for: (from IT): "The majority of computers on campus are leased and thus will be returned to the leasing company at the end of the lease.* We are limited in how we dispose of the computers by the state procedures and regulations so we will not be offering a faculty or student purchasing program." Does anyone know exactly what he means? My school is state owned (Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education), so I was thinking that maybe they are required to give them all to public schools/libraries, etc?? Or do you think that the IT people are hording all of the lovingly kept Powermacs, iMacs, Powerbooks, and iBooks for themselves? I was really hoping to get a cheap 2nd Mac out of this, so if anyone knows what is up with the policy, and if there is any way I could possibly get around it, I'd appreciate the help.
