The WIU eAcademy offers flexible equipment leases for eAcademy students. Districts have the option to lease HP ProBooks 645, AMD quad core processor with 8G of RAM, and a 14-inch screen. Each laptop comes equipped with a charger and laptop box. In addition, districts have the option to lease just the laptop alone, or add Kajeet Internet service via a portable mifi device or a laptop/Internet bundle, depending on individual student needs.
