New L.A. district budget figures say iPads will cost $100 more apiece

Providing Apple iPads to all students in the Los Angeles Unified District will cost nearly $100 more apiece — or $770 per tablet. The Los Angeles Times says the discounted price of $678 per device that was previously disclosed does not take effect until the school system has spent $400 million on iPads. That equates to about 520,000 iPads. Last week, officials proposed extending the schedule for completing the iPad distribution by a year, from December 2014 to December 2015.
