TCDS students have four options when it comes to use of computers at school.
Option 1: Purchase a used Chromebook from TCDS
New and used Chromebooks are now available for purchase here.
Used Chromebooks are available at a variety of price points. Prices are a reflection of the age of the Chromebook. All units were previously a part of the TCDS fleet and were maintained and inspected by the TCDS Tech Team. Please be aware that all used Chromebooks are sold as is, without warranty or protection plan.
For detailed descriptions of the units, please visit our payment page. Payment plans for your Chromebook purchase may be available. Please email our CFO, Lauren Mosgrove: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Option 2: Purchase a new Chromebook
Check vendors such as Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, Walmart, Samsung, or Office Depot, to name a few. If you choose this option it is recommended that you act fast as inventory is limited due to high demand.
- Start looking NOW because many sites have limited stock and a lot of devices on backorder!
- Chromebooks with the new USB-C charging port seem to be more robust than those with older charging ports.
- The TCDS IT department has had good experiences with Lenovo and Acer brands.
- Some reviews that may be helpful:
Option 3: Bring your own laptop/Chromebook
Chromebooks are different from laptops. Confused? Read this article that explains the differences.
Students may use their own laptops; Windows or Mac laptops must meet the following requirements:

- Must be able to connect to an advanced wireless system (WPA2 Enterprise) and 5.0 Ghz wireless Wifi.

Students may also use Chromebooks they already own, but it must have the most recent Chrome OS installed.
Option 4: Use a TCDS-owned Chromebook
We currently do not have Chromebooks available for rental. Please contact Rachel Robertson, our program coordinator, if you would like to be placed on a waitlist:
There is a $50 deposit associated with using a TCDS Chromebook; $25 will be refunded upon return of the Chromebook.
