What is BYOD?
BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device, a new initiative that sees Children bring their own computers and devices to school in order to facilitate a more modern and productive workspace.

At Playtech, our favourite BYOD devices are the awesome range of Google "Chromebooks" which are a special kind of laptop designed  by Google for educational use.

But what if it breaks?
All of our BYOD packages include a 3 year hardware warranty and Accidental Damage Protection!

This means you if you have any trouble with the device just get in touch with our support team and we can arrange a repair or replacement ASAP!*

How powerful are they?
Chromebooks work differently than most computers, in that the bulk of their tasks are actually processedon the Google Cloud. This means that Chromebooks don't need to be very high spec in order to work quickly and have a good user experience. This also means that they won't start to feel slower as they age, and you won't need to upgrade them as often as a normal computer.

Sorting out your 2019 BYOD options doesn't have to break the bank this Xmas!
We've got plenty of different options to make BYOD is stress free as possible!
Whether you'd like to pay in installments with Laybuy or Oxipay, or defer your payments with Q card, we've got you covered!
