Technology Requirements

New Devices: Minimum Specs 

The following specifications are applicable for all new Xavier Catholic College students and for all current students who need to upgrade or replace their device.

Windows Mac
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 or equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB SSD
  • Display: 13"
  • Operating system: Windows 11
  • Processor: Apple M1 or equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB SSD
  • Display: 13" 
  • Operating system: macOS Monterey

You may wish to consider purchasing a device with higher specifications if your child will be using this for demanding tasks in specialist subjects (such as Technologies and/or Creative Arts). 

We are currently working with partners to develop a parent portal where these devices can be purchased online. Further information will be made available soon. 

While not mandatory, we highly recommend purchasing Accidental Damage Protection insurance.

If your child previously purchased a device through the College's BYOD program, all warranty claims must be lodged via Acer or Dell (depending on the device). You'll need your service tag or SNID, which is located on the bottom of your Chromebook.

  • Acer: Call 1300 365 100 and select Option 2
  • Dell: 1300 662 087

Each student must follow the guidelines outlined in the Information & Communications Technology Agreement, signed as a condition of enrolment. 

If you have any queries about technology requirements, please contact the College via email.
