The Macbooks are allowed to be borrowed for 5 hours and any extra time that you keep it for, it will calculate a late fee, upon return.
If the Macbooks are not returned, the student card used to rent it, will be charged accordingly.
The reason for this machine, is so students don’t have to carry their laptops to school and some students fear theft of their Macbooks, so they don;t even bring it to school. this will give all users a piece of mind. Some students might even forget to bring their laptops, so they can borrow one and never fall behind in class.
The security will be alerted if the Macbooks leaves the comfort zone of the vending machine.
Once the Macbook is returned to it’s vending machine, it will then wipe all the information from the hard drive to ensure privacy for public use. Also the Macbooks will be charged while in the vending machine.
