An article in the Austin American Statesman details plans for the University of Texas to require students of the teacher preparation program to purchase an Apple laptop, if they don’t already have a laptop with a required suite of software.

Beginning this fall, the University of Texas will require students entering its teacher preparation programs to have laptops, and if they can’t get the right machine, they’ll have to buy it from Apple Computer Corp.

The move, which will be formally announced Monday, first will affect about 300 students, mostly juniors and seniors, in the colleges of education, fine arts, liberal arts and natural sciences. Many more eventually will be affected by the new program, which will require students to have a university-approved Apple laptop running specific software.
