To make the purchasing decisions easier for parents and students we have contacted some of the larger computer manufacturers as well as some local suppliers, and asked them to open a purchasing portal direct from the supplier to the students and parents.  These are not the only suppliers that are capable of supplying student computers, they but can be used as a guide.
The portals set up specifically for Kingaroy State High School are:
Datacom Computers (Dell):           https://myschoolshop-qld.datacom.com.au/kingaroyshs
username: kingaroyshs                 Password: parent
Hewlet Packard (HP):                       www.hpshopping.com.au/kingaroy
Acer:                                                     http://byod.acer.com.au/school/kshs/index.php/

Data#3:                                                http://www.hpshopping.com.au/eduqld
 
In order to take part in BYOx, students take their permission form (available at the Front Office or below) to the School technician in F7 to arrange a time to take their laptop in to be BYOD connected.
