•Please evaluate the build quality of any laptop purchased. The demands of being carried around to classes, and to and from school can take a toll on a computer. Further protection can be added by purchasing a hard cover for your laptop.

•It is the responsibility of each family to ensure the laptop is covered by insurance/warranty in the event of accidental damage or theft. The College accepts no responsibility for damage or loss.

•Laptops need to come to school, fully-charged and ready for use each day. Power supplies cannot be used at school due to the Occupational Health & Safety risks.

•Students must ensure the safety and security of their laptop by storing it in their assigned locker with its lock fastened.

•Laptops cannot be serviced by College technicians. All maintenance and servicing is the owner’s responsibility.

•Transport of the laptop with the screen closed, and using it securely on a desk can minimise risk of damage.

•Plan for the future with a device that will last at-least three years, and meets the demands of their learning.

•Please check the Minimum Specifications of your chosen device.

1. Upfront purchase of device and accessories
