By Rylee Yerkes


Salisbury Township School District has distributed the latest version of the MacBook to their students. The newest MacBook Air, released in June of 2017, has a cost of $900. Apple does give the option to buy the laptops at a cheaper price if they are designated for educational purposes, and this reduced the price to $849.
