St Margaret’s College first introduced a 1:1 laptop initiative for its students in 2008. Now, all students from Year 9 upwards are required to have an Apple laptop. Our recommendation for parents purchasing a laptop is an Apple MacBook Air or Pro 13”.
Other recommended accessories are:
- a laptop sleeve or glove to physically protect the laptop
- a device to backup work (memory sticks or a USB powered hard drive).
We also recommend extended warranty on the laptop.
For the purchase of the laptop and accessories we recommend our IT partner Cyclone Computers http://www.cyclone.co.nz/. Cyclone computers is a licensed Apple Education Retailer and is using its collective relationship with other New Zealand schools to provide parents with an easy online ordering service along with the advantages of bulk buying.
For any queries or further laptop information please contact Brian Woods on [email protected] or 03 379-2000
