School of Science and Technology

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

Hi, can the existing parents or students advise whether do you get the Mac Book from the school vendor or outside vendor ? Any disadvantages or advantages ?
Can paid by installments or in full ?

I think it is too early to know what's the T-Score for the latest PSLE cohort.

But previously, they have indicated a range of 240-245. They have not been very specific.

Need advice from existing students and parents.
I just log in to the Macbook vendor website. Very blur about the warranty for 2 years, 4th year warranty, protection plan ,accident and damage insurance, etc...
It really not a small amount to add up all these ? Must we need to purchase all these ? Heard that if only puchased from this vendor, then can serviced within the school if got any problems with the Macbook in future , it that true?
Please share your views, thanks.

Hi,
Got the info from Sapruna.

Apple by default has one yr warranty.

Apple ext 2 yrs warranty is for 2nd and 3rd yr.

Sapruna offer 4th yrs warranty. So cover 4 yrs in SST for parts.

Insurance is in case the child broke the screen or thief. You can call Ryan from Sapruna for detail.

Take note the AppleCare protection plan pricing for Macbook Pro 13" is listed as $268 in the comparison chart. But during online order, it's listed as $378. Already feedback this to Ryan, and t he'll check with the webmaster on this.
