TPHS purchasing portal

To purchase a laptop through our preferred partner please visit the TPHS purchasing portal. Please note that purchasing through CompNow, with associated insurance, provides an onsite, business level of support in the event of any damage or warranty claim but parents are encouraged to ensure that CompNow meets their needs. If you elect to purchase through another supplier warranty support will not be through the school. Additionally we highly recommend that such devices are covered with personal insurance and with extended warranty cover.
