You are about to enter the SMCCD Apple Custom Store.

This store is for the sole use of faculty and staff of the San Mateo County Community College District and contains computers specific to our needs. These computers have been specified and tested by the Colleges and ITS, and are warranted to last for 3-4 years.

Although you may find cheaper alternatives on the retail sites, the specifications and warranty are not adequate for SMCCCD purchases and therefore will not be supported or approved.
