Update – Chromebook program for grade 5 onwards

Update – Chromebook program for grade 5 onwards

Dear parents,

This is to update you about the further proceedings with regard to the chromebook for grade 5 onwards. As most of you are still in dilemma to decide on the brand for chromebook to be purchased for your child, we have arranged a sample piece of Asus chromebook.

A sample for the Acer and Dell chromebook is not available with us but we have arranged for a similar model (last year’s model). Parents who desire to see the chromebook models can come to school anytime between 9:00 to 11:00 am from 5th to 10th June 2017.

Kindly note that the model for Dell chromebook, which the school had earlier selected, has been cancelled, as the company has stopped the production of that model. The upgraded version of the device is already launched in the market.

Please refer to the following table for the configuration and revised prices of all the three brands of the chromebook.
