TELECOMS service provider LIME will be bringing their ongoing computer deals to their annual back-to-school fair — Skool Aid, being held at JamWorld in Waterford, Portmore on Saturday, August 25, 2012.

Patrons have the opportunity to purchase the Lenovo C200, an all-in-one desktop or the Lenovo netbook at specially reduced prices if they sign up for one of two Internet plans. These two plans are the postpaid mobile Internet plan or the 'Browse and Talk' plan, which are available on contract.

The all-in-one desktop will be available for only $24,999 and the netbook will go for $14,999 (both prices exclude tax).

Dwight Williams, head of product services, LIME Jamaica, says the company is trying to make it more affordable for persons to have access to both technologies.

"Many persons want to get Internet, but they don't have a computer because they can't afford to buy a laptop for $60,000. We are therefore providing these offers so that the devices can be more affordable and they can get online," he said.

The company is also preparing to welcome over 30,000 patrons to the event which will offer a complete suite of services needed for the reopening of schools in September.

LIME will be offering free health and dental checks including immunisations and free back-to-school supplies. A number of suppliers and retailers of various educational items from which patrons can access a wide range of back to school essentials will also tobe present at the event.

Promised, is a fun-filled day of activities, prizes and surprises which includes a Skool Aid 'Olympics Zone', concert, Petting Zoo, rides, and other entertainment.

Students, who attend the event will also stand a chance to win one of several scholarships and other educational incentives being offered by LIME.
