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 and support the Macbook Pro with Retina Display. 

If purchasing the 13" model, we suggest upgrading to the i7 processor and at least 256GB PCIe-based flash storage. If you purchase AppleCare+, Student Technical Services on campus can facilitate service with Apple if needed.


All Apple hardware comes with a one-year limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary telephone technical support. To extend your coverage further, purchase the AppleCare+®Protection Plan. AppleCare+ will extend the warranty to 3 years and will allow Service Desk staff to facilitate warranty repairs.
