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.

If only 2 were offered for post PSLE places, the size of the of 2016 cohort is 168 students.
166 with SST emails assigned + 2 kids from post PSLE.

hi all, my DS is one of those late entries into SST.
Need some advice on the LD... i've been reading past few pages of threads....

There's 3 models we're considering - Mcbook air - $2,210, Mcbook pro - 1,547 and another McBook pro - $2,711.
Only the McBook Air and higher end $2,711 Pro are customised for SST. Debating whether he should go with the lower end Mcbook pro ($1,547), or the higher end McBook pro ($2,711).

Which ones are u all getting? Is the higher end McBook pro costing $1.1k extra, necessary at this stage? Will the lower end McBook Pro serve him for the 4 years he's there? Will it be better to upgrade RAM and storage later, if necessary? My hubby says tech gets cheaper all the time, but we're Windows users. Not sure about Mac. Is Mac more future-proof compared to Windows? First time we're getting a Mac. It's a large investment! :sweat:

It's also our first time getting MacBook. We bought the MacBook Pro 13" customized. According to Harvey Norman sales rep, the customized is very high end. Not sure if they will need it over the 4 years. But my DS chose this model cos he said it's good for presentations. I suppose the lower end MacBook Pro has the minimum requirements. Else the school won't even have this option.

We choose the Mac Air, which we find lighter than Pro. The kid has to carry the LD day in day out, getting him the ligher one and yet served all the purposed needed is more compromised. Of course in terms of capabilities Pro is definitely better than Air, where most obvious advantage is the resolution.

This is just my humble opinion.

:thankyou: We'll go with the Pro. Being a boy, hope the extra weight is good preparation for his NS too. :smile:

Can anyone share the culture of this school - enviornment, teachers and studies - very stressful? DO they have alot of projects to do and coming home late. How heavy the load. Thank you.
