Buy Apple

Bates College has a custom Apple Store for faculty, staff, and students who wish to purchase personal computers with personal funds. The store can be accessed from the link below.

This site provides access to the full Apple catalog, where you can purchase Apple computers at academic pricing. Bates recommends Apple MacBook Pro laptops. We also strongly encourage the purchase of AppleCare for your laptop. AppleCare extends the Apple warranty for another two years, for a total of three years.  Apple computers purchased at this site can be picked up at your local Apple retail store, depending on availability.
