College Devices

Year 7-9

After considerable feedback and research within the College Community, Padua has implemented a Choose Your Own Device Program (CYOD) in 2018 for electronic devices beginning with Year 7 students.

Students must select one of the following Apple or Dell devices.

Dell Latitude 3190
11.6 HD LCD
Pentium N5000
4GB RAM
128GB SSD

Dell Latitude 3380
13.3 HD LCD
i3-6006U 2GHz
8GB RAM
128GB or 256GB SSD

MacBook Air 13.3
i5 1.8GHz
GB RAM
128GB SSD or 256GB SSD

You are free to purchase one of the prescribed laptops from any supplier, as long as it is exactly the same model and matches or exceeds the technical specifications listed above. To make this process easier, Padua College has negotiated special education deals on laptop packages with a company called CompNow. The prices can be found via the CompNow CYOD Portal 2018/2019 Padua portal and include a variety of payment options. However, you are free to purchase your child's laptop from any company you see fit.

IMPORTANT Padua will provide a FREE copy of Microsoft office to all students for the duration of their enrolments.


Year 10-12

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program at Padua remains unchanged. Whilst not mandatory, we do recommend that students purchase one of the devices listed above including a 3 year accidental coverage protection.

If you have any questions about the program, or the devices please feel free to contact us via phone or email.
