Laptop Hardware and Software

Hardware

All students in Grades 6-11 are required to have a laptop provided through our school's hardware integration partner. This assures that we can maintain simplicity of learning and provide on-site warranty support maximizing the laptop's availability as a learning resource.

Lenovo has been selected as the recommended hardware partner based on a rigorous evaluation process and TAS's experience to date. The following were some of the criteria used to select Lenovo and the solution integrator Multicom:
  • Cost
  • Weight
  • Durability
  • Battery Life
  • Function
  • Vendor partnership
  • Sustainability

The Lenovo Yoga tablet comes with an international warranty.

New purchase option for 2018-2019.

For students acquiring a new device for 2018-2019 we have chose the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 380 convertible tablet. It delivers sophisticated performance and durability with the latest technology. As has been true, the program cost includes not only the laptop with a typical 3 year warranty, it also includes ThinkPad protection against accidental damage for 3 years. A fourth year is also available as an option. There is also on site warranty service and access to an equivalent loaner computer while any necessary service is being performed. A more detailed program description can be found here.

An additional 4th year warranty can be purchased during the first 30 months after delivery.

Orders for the Yoga 380 laptop can be placed here beginning March 8.
