College Devices 2020

Year 7-9

The available devices have been selected after research and consultation with students, teachers, learning leaders, industry and education leaders.   Students are required to bring one of the prescribed laptops models:

  • Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Yoga 5th Gen (Windows version not the Chromebook version)
  • Lenovo L390
  • Apple MacBook Air 13"


We advise parents to shop around when buying these prescribed devices, as you might find any of these three models on special. We strongly suggest that when purchasing your device you also get accidental insurance coverage to cover the device, from either the computer retailer or your insurance company.

We have setup a shortcut for parents with EduNet, a Mornington company who can supply these laptops.  To be fully transparent, Padua does not get a commission from this company, nor do we get any benefits from this arrangement.  

To review and possibly purchase devices, visit EduNet's website for Padua’s families:

IMPORTANT Padua will provide a FREE copy of Microsoft office to all students for the duration of their enrolments.

Year 10-12

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program at Padua remains unchanged. That is students can use any device to do work at the college excluding mobile phones, iPads and Google Chromebooks devices.

Whilst not mandatory, if you choose to purchase a new laptop we do recommend that students purchase one of the devices listed above including a 3 year accidental coverage protection.

If you have any questions about the program, or the devices please feel free to contact us ( via phone or email.
