Anyone with kids knows that back to school can be a stressful time. Not just for the kids getting ready for another year of education, but for the family financially. There are new uniforms to buy, school stationery, school fees and a relatively recent addition to the list in new tech.
A significant number of schools now require that students have an iPad, Chromebook or some form of a laptop. This depends on their setup of course, but it’s another financial whack.
Officeworks, Lenovo, and Afterpay have combined to present an option that will meet these needs. It’s not a powerhouse of a laptop, but it will do what it needs to for web surfing, word processing, and general education use – The Lenovo Ideapad S130.
At $377.00 it’s not going to break the bank, has a 1 year Office 365 Licence – worth $100 on its own – and has a reasonable specification list.
- 14″ 768p Screen
- 64GB of storage
- 4GB of RAM
- Windows 10S
- Intel Celeron N4000 Processor and integrated graphics
- Connectivity including: WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB-C, USB 3.0 and HDMI
Coupled with Afterpay you can grab what your kids need now and spread the payment over a period of time so the family budget isn’t impacted heavily. Afterpay offers fortnightly interest-free repayments on purchases of up to $1000 with no account keeping or setup fees.
