[prMac.com] Berkeley, CA - MacEase is pleased to announce that effective immediately iPrint is being made available to public primary and secondary schools free of charge. By using iPrint, schools will be able to significantly reduce the money they spend on consumables in their computer labs and instead will be able to apply these funds to critical services.
iPrint works on any Macintosh computer that is running OS X, and it works in the background to enable users to simply select and print just the material that they need. This eliminates having to print entire pages of data when just a snippet - of any size - is needed. iPrint works with virtually all Mac programs and it is an especially powerful data mining tool when students are doing research on the Internet.
By allowing students to focus on just the material that is relevant to their work, iPrint enhances the learning process. By eliminating the printing of large amounts of unnecessary material, iPrint dramatically reduces the wasting of critical dollars on supplies such as ink, toner, and paper. When using iPrint, computer labs also may be able to get by with fewer printers since the printers aren't being tied up printing unnecessary data.
A Macintosh computer with System 10.3.x, 10.4.x, or 10.5.x; a PowerPC or Intel processor.
