Even in an age where everything from smoothies to books are being purchased in vending machines, it is still hard to imagine something as heavy-duty as a computer being dispensed from a vending product. However, even that technological barrier has been broken, as made evident by a recent Mashable article.
According to the story, students at Drexel University in Philadelphia can now rent out MacBook laptops from a vending machine in the school’s library. The machine operates 24 hours a day, eliminating the need for students to lug their expensive laptops to and from the library during late night hours. All students need to take out a laptop is their student ID card, which entitles them to 5 hours worth of computer use before they have to pay a $5 late fee. All laptops are charged and cleared of all data upon being put back in. The laptop vending machine is a fantastic solution for students who either do not have their own laptops or would prefer not to lug them everywhere.
