Any Older Mac Laptops Out There You Would Donate To A Good Cause!?

Last year my students successfully piloted a 1:1 laptop program with old Key Lime Green iBooks. I have 28 iBooks, and I never got above 27 students last year so everything went well. Unfortunately I have 34 students on my list for school starting Monday (we aren’t supposed to have over 26 … but that’s a different story). Now things will adjust … I may end up with 36 or I might have 30 but still more than I have computers for. I will make do with what I have if I have to … but that’s not 1:1. So, if anyone out there has a Mac laptop (or 2 or 3 or more) sitting around that works, but you aren’t using it please let me know. The best rule of thumb I can think of as far as minimum requirements is that if it has Firewire it will work. I’m running “Panther” OS 10.3.9 – but if it has an older operating system I can upgrade myself. I’ll pay the shipping!

So again … if anyone can help please let me know. Thanks for your consideration!

1:1 is messy when you don’t have enough laptops!

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I have a question for an experienced blogger. Do you need to ask for permission to link someone’s blog to your own? Also, I would like to add a link to your blog from mine if you wouldn’t mind.

    Looking forward to your future posts. I’m sorry I don’t have any laptops to donate!
