Option 1: Purchase a Chromebook from TCDS
We currently do not have Chromebooks available for purchase. Please check back at a later date, as we periodically restock Chromebooks throughout the year.
Option 2: Purchase a Chromebook from an outside vendor
Chromebooks are different from laptops. Confused? Read this article that explains the differences.
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.

Option 3: Bring your own laptop/Chromebook
Students may use their own Chromebooks or laptops; either option must meet the requirements as stated in the device policy, found here (on pages 25 &26).
