Maleny State High School does not recommend or endorse a particular computer brand, model or supplier. You have the freedom of purchasing a laptop that best suits your personal needs and budget requirements.
However, the device you choose to purchase must meet the minimum specifications and must have a compatible operating system. You can find out more about these specifications and compatible operating systems by reading the BYOx Charter.
Below are some starting points in conducting research or buying a device.
We believe in supporting local business. There are a number of IT providers in the immediate community and wider Sunshine Coast region that can provide BYO device purchase options and advice.
A number of retail stores provide a dedicated BYOD portal to make the purchase of your students laptop and associated accessories as easy as possible. Most of these devices are education specific and are not available for purchase in their normal retail stores. The devices that are listed in the portals have been selected based on our minimum specifications. The portals and related information are outlined below.
Hewlette Packard provides interest free options as well as next business day warranty and accidental damange protection.
