Purchase an Apple Computer with an Academic Discount

Bowdoin fully supports the use of Apple® technology and is here to assist students, parents, faculty, and staff to purchase technology that will help them succeed during their academic career and beyond. Shopping at the Bowdoin's online Apple Store for Education is a great way to take advantage of Apple education pricing on Mac® computers, Apple software, and select accessories.


We recommend the Macbook Pro. 

If purchasing the 13" model, we suggest upgrading to the i7 processor and at least 256GB PCIe-based flash storage. We also recommend purchasing AppleCare+ to protect your purchase with minimal cost to you in case of accidental damage for the first 3 years. Student Technical Services on campus can facilitate service with Apple if needed.
