Purchase portal


We have simplified the process for parents and caregivers when choosing a laptop for your child. Several suppliers have helped us by narrowing down the choices from the hundreds of available models, options and accessories on the market.

Each supplier has provided our families with an online portal for browsing a range of laptops, backpacks, accidental damage protection (ADP), and accessories. The portals also offer a shopping cart and payment options to finalise purchase and/or finance arrangements.

The links below have been sorted alphabetically by supplier. The order in no way represents any level of preference, importance or price. If a password and/or access code is required these are listed in the third column.

If a model shows up as "out of stock" or "not currently available", or what you are seeking is not available through the portal, please contact the supplier directly to make further enquiries.

The only influence Gympie State High School has exerted over the suppliers is that all suppliers were sent a copy of the minimum device specifications.

How do I select a device from so many choices?

Here are the recommended steps to acquire a device for your child. 
  1. Read the BYOD Handbook & Agreement
  2. If you haven't already, read the "Before you buy a new laptop for school" section on the FAQ page
  3. Print the BYOD specification sheet to refer to when shopping
  4. Compare deals from the purchase portals below, and other laptop suppliers
  5. Confirm warranty and accidental damage cover are included in the price and that the return processses are convenient and cost-effective for you.
