BYOD - BringYour Own Device
All Grade 6 students are expected to bring their own laptop as part of ISHR's BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). The BYOD program is designed for the ISHR Apple platform. Consequently all students are expected to bring an Apple laptop.
To support the BYOD program we have selected two local Apple Education Resellers as a way to help students/parents purchase an Apple laptop at a discounted price. Please contact the vendor directly (see details below from each vendor) if you wish to purchase a laptop.
The two vendors are: Gesellschaft für digitale Bildung and FundK.
The laptop comes with standard warranty, which can be extended based on your need. Warranty options are offered, however if you need more information, please discuss the details directly with the vendor to determine the most suitable option.
Each vendor has provided full details and prices for the models below.
The following is the recommended minimum specification for the ISHR BYOD laptop:
Apple MacBook Air 13inch (33cm), 1.8 GHz Dual Core i5, 8GB, 128GB SSD, Intel HD Graphics 6000, macOS Sierra
