Henrico County to Sell Off Old iBooks

Henrico County to Sell Off Old iBooks

by , 4:00 AM EDT, July 25th, 2005

Henrico County Public Schools have announced that its used Apple iBooks it has been using in a four-year laptop program will be sold off in a one-day sale, Tuesday, August 9.

Mychael Dickerson, director of media relations and safety for Henrico County Public Schools, said 1,000 iBooks will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis for US$50 each at the school warehouse in Richmond, Virginia from 9 am to 3pm ET.

The warehouse is located at 361 Dabbs House Road beside the Eastern Government Center. Only cash or checks will be accepted.

The 12-inch iBooks were part of a contract worth $24.2 million and consisted of 23,000 iBooks. In April of this year, Apple was outbid by some $4 million by Dell -- $20 less for each Windows-based laptop -- and Henrico County schools are in the process of transitioning away from Macs. Apple, however, still has a four-year contract with Henrico County for the county's middle school students, That deal will expire in June 2006.
