Updates and News
July 30: If you haven't ordered a laptop yet, do it now!
Lenovos are running about 2.5 weeks for delivery, the Macs a little less. If you order after Aug 5, we recommend that you have it shipped to your Campus Box address.
July 2: Apple announces Back to School Promotion! Details here!
June 27: Still waiting for news about Apple's Back to School promotion. Rumors say July 1 will be the day.
But note that the prices at the education store for our recommended standard 13" MacBook Pro save $200 over the regular Apple store. The BTS promotion is still rumored to be an additional $100 gift certificate to the Apple store.
May 31, 2013: Our site is up and models are available for the Lenovo PC models.
You may make a purchase from the links on our Lenovo page. We still recommend waiting to purchase a Mac until after Apple’s new models are released, shortly after their developers’ conference, likely in late June. Stay tuned for an update noting that we recommend making Mac purchases.
April 8, 2013: Models announced!
On the Lenovo side, we'll be offering 5 models: the T430 and T530, the X230, the X1 Carbon ultrabook, and the Helix. For Macs, we'll be supporting the standard 13" MacBook Pro.
If you have questions about the process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When should I order my Bison Laptop?
Windows: Order now. Ordering by mid-July ensures it will arrive at your home in plenty of time before you leave for school.
Macs: Order now.
How do I order my laptop?
For both Macs and Windows, go to the Choose Your Model page and click on the appropriate links. You'll make your choice, select your options, pay by credit card, and have it shipped to your home. You are the owner and administrator of the computer once it arrives, so you can install anything that you'd like. You can also buy your standard MacBook Pro from an Apple store or other retailer and receive the same level of support at Bucknell.
