Vendor information and portals/online stores

WebPartZone1_1
PublishingPageContent

A number of vendors have developed portals/online stores that College parents/carers can use to research and\or purchase laptops and other items. There are also a number of other retail stores in the local area that have advised that they are able to provide suitable laptops and other items to KGSC parents/carers.

To ensure the best value for money, parents/carers are encouraged to research laptops and other items (please see minimum specifications and required items for the BYOx program) across a wide range vendors and retailers to obtain quotes  to ensure that the best possible price can be negotiated. 

A low cost laptop may not always be best option over the long term - it is important to consider the "total costs of ownership” including warranty, technical support arrangements and components. Ensure that the device is suitable for use in a school BYOx program, rather than for home or business office use. 

The following documents may be of use when comparing laptops to make a purchasing decision:

Education suppliers have experience in supplying devices which have been evaluated by DoE for use with school students, and may be able to provide a cost effective suitable device and warranty and technical support arrangements (eg next day on site repairs).

Many vendors offer finance plans, hiring and/or leasing options. Purchase, finance and lease agreements are private arrangements between the parent/caregiver and the vendor. The College and the P&C take  no responsibility for any private finance arrangements. 

All issues with laptop purchases or technical issues need to be taken up with the vendor, not the College or the P&C.

Vendor resources

The College takes no responsibility for any information provided on the vendor portals which are provided as a service to parents/carers. Vendors are provided information about the College BYOx program, including minimum specifications and required items, and vendors have sole responsibility for the offerings they include on their portals. Parents/carers need to ensure that minimum specifications and requirements for the BYOx program are met when considering purchasing items through any vendor.
