Laptop Care and Repair

The Macaulay-issued laptops are the essential tools to enhance your academic experience in today’s technologically innovative and data-driven world. While the laptops are fairly sturdy, a liquid spill, a bump or a fall can damage them. We urge you to handle your laptop carefully, carrying it in a padded case or sleeve at all times. In addition, you should always back up your work to an external drive or to cloud storage as frequently as possible.

The laptops come with a one-year limited warranty.  Students can check if they are covered by going to this page
