All required software will be provided. Please do not buy software without consulting with the technology department. Students are often eligible for discounts on personal software purchases.
It is advisable to purchase the equipment before May 15, 2023. Most suppliers need 4-6 weeks to fulfill orders.
All recommended specifications are listed in this document
for each type of laptop. These specifications will meet the needs of the majority of students.
For those wishing to purchase Windows 10 laptops, ensure the laptop comes with Windows 10 Pro. The Home edition can work, but it is often problematic.
It is important to avoid Windows 10 Basic and Windows S (WIndows 10 S). These systems will not connect properly to the SA network.
There are small groups of students who are focused on graphic design, video production, and 3D modeling. These students would likely be in Grade 11 or 12 and would have completed courses that fall within this type of work.
If you believe your student is in this group, please contact: email@example.com
. A separate recommendation will be made for these students.
