Parents interested in purchasing a device for your child, please see the information below:
A laptop is the preferred device. Tablets, iPads, or phones may not work with all programs being used.
MCPSS will be purchasing Chromebooks. Chromebooks come in different brands and different sizes. They range in price from $150-$250, and can be purchased from Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, or Best Buy.
A side note: Chromebook refers to the operating system that is on the laptop. HP, Lenovo, Dell, Asus and others sell their own version of the Chromebook.
However, any laptop with the Operating System Windows 10 installed will work.
It’s important to note: The laptop does not have to be a high-end laptop. Most student laptops in Chromebook and Windows typically have the following features:
4gb of ram
32gb hard-drive space
Celeron or AMD 1.1 ghz or higher
Chrome or Windows OS
**These are very minimal specs for a laptop.**
ANY laptop with Windows or Chrome operating system on them should work fine.
