The iMacs are able to connect to the school's Apple G4 file server and the Internet. Students are able to begin work at any iMac in the building, save their work on the school file server, and continue at any other iMac in the building.

We also have six iBook G4 laptops for use during computer class and around the building.

We have three digital cameras. The Hewlett Packard 715XI, the Canon s40, and the
Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom. The 715XI is able to take digital still photos. The s40 and C-3030 both take still and short 30 to 120 second movies.
