Damage and breakdowns

St Mary’s DSG will have laptops available to loan to any girl who has purchased the St Mary’s DSG laptop bundle if her computer cannot be repaired that day. Please note this is subject to the availability of a loan laptop at the time of repair. Acer has a next business day warranty.

Loan laptops are not provided for damage to laptops due to negligence (this includes a cracked screen).

Insurance may be included in the purchase of the laptops through the school plan at R360 per term.  The insurance cost will be charged through the school account.  Parents still need to pay the insurance excess of minimum R1000 per claim or alternatively 10% of the claimed amount.  The insurance covers accidental damage and/or theft of the laptop.

Daily wear and tear is not covered by the insurance.

Parents have the option of including the laptop on their personal home insurance policy.  In this case, parents must arrange repair or replacement of the laptop either privately or through their insurance.
