UAlbany Apple Laptop Program
In the Department of Art and Art History at the University at Albany we have partnered with Apple Computer to provide all students, faculty and staff with exclusive discounts on specially-configured laptop computers for personal purchase. These discounts apply only to products purchased for personal use and may not be used for equipment purchased with State funds.
Apple is the platform of choice in the Department and we strongly urge our majors who are considering a computer purchase to acquire this equipment in order to better integrate with our workflow. You are by no means required to have a Mac (nor even a computer, for that matter) to be an Art major, but we think once you become involved in capturing and editing digital video, manipulating and printing large archival photographs, rendering complex audio works, realizing an animation project or require precise color-management calibration and control, you'll want one. And we can help. Shop UAlbany’s Recommended System bundles with special education pricing on the Apple site.
