Intel® Core™ Processors

HP technology is designed to support the focus on STEM in schools, enabling every student to have access to the necessary tools they require to learn lifelong STEM literacy skills.


Classrooms are dynamic spaces where students are learning to become problem solvers, creative innovators, critical thinkers and communicators. Here at HP we are working together with schools to provide a BYOD solution to enable educators to integrate new technology into the delivery of the Australian Curriculum and engage students in new concepts, ideas and knowledge and students reach their full potential and prepare them for the jobs for the future.

Memory and Storage

Short for Random Access Memory, having more RAM means your software will run faster and multitasking is smoother. Laptops and 2-in-1's should have a minimum of 4GB of RAM for general academic usage or 8GB or more is recommended for technical usage or when you will be multitasking across multiple software programs at once.

Go for at least 128GB of storage in laptops and 2-in-1s.

At least 32GB of storage in tablets is recommended.

Wireless Connectivity is a must

Make sure your device has Dual-Band WiFi (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) to get the fastest access to the school network.


Check with your school about their requirements.
