FAQs - The Device

1. Why did SCEGGS choose tablet PCs and not Macs?

Tablet PCs better suit the broad learning needs of our students in a diverse range of subjects, providing the best of both worlds with finger touch and pen based input as well as a traditional keyboard. The Lenovo tablet PC is a powerful computer that runs all commonly used and high-end applications that are required for our educational programs. They are easier to repair quickly on site and we can change the battery or charge the device quickly if required.
