approve the purchase of computers for Orange County Schools teaching staff.
BACKGROUND: On April 16, 2012, the board approved a two-year technology plan for submission
to the state. The plan's strategic priorities include providing students, teachers, and administrators with

training activities which will focus on integration of technology into instruction.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: The cost of providing Orange County Schools’ teachers with laptops is projected
to be $408,200. The cost per device is $628. These funds have already been budgeted as a part of
Orange County Schools plans to update older teacher work stations. The Statewide IT Procurement
Office has approved the addition of the ThinkPadX130e model to the N.C. 204A Contract under the
portable category at the Lenovo contract discount of list price minus 30%. The state contract base
price is $699.30. The OCS base price is $517.00.
RECOMMENDATION. The Superintendent recommends the board approve the purchase of 650
LenovoX130e laptop computers for Orange County Schools teachers.
