Answer: $180 million.
The state of Idaho announced it would provide laptops to all high school students by 2015. The price tag for a contract with Hewlett Packard rings up at $180 million, according to Stateline.
But the fate of a 2011 law that requires these laptop expenditures hangs on the votes of Idaho residents on Nov. 6. Proposition 3 asks voters to decide whether the legislation that requires computers and online courses for high school graduation should be repealed.
