Upper School Laptop Program

A laptop computer is a required purchase for all Upper School students. Through Apple Education, Brownell Talbot is able to offer the school-preferred laptop at a special price to BT families.

School-Preferred Laptop

  • Apple 13” MacBook Air with a custom configuration that includes a larger hard drive and additional RAM compared to the base unit from Apple.
  • The computer comes with a four-year AppleCare policy that is only available to educational institutions.
  • The purchase includes over $100 of additional licensed software (including Microsoft Office) that will be used for classes.
  • Accidental damage coverage through Safeware is optional. If you choose this optional coverage, Safeware will provide four years of accidental damage coverage with a $0 per incident deductible. These are repairs that are not covered under the extended manufacturer warranty.

If properly cared for, the laptop should last throughout your child’s Upper School years at Brownell Talbot.

Use the form to place your order by Monday, June 15, 2020, so we can ensure you receive the special price, the correct laptop model, and delivery before the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Once we receive the laptops from the vendor, each laptop will be configured with the student's personalized settings before it is distributed.

Please contact me at 402.556.3772, ext. 1149 or techteam@brownell.edu if you have any questions about the ordering process. We look forward to handing out your student's laptop at a training session before the start of school.

Thank you for your support of the Laptop Program at Brownell Talbot
