Acer screw replacement project

acer-1830t laptop
Acer have agreed to remediation work for all Education Queensland NSSCF Acer Aspire 1830T Laptops. This is because of manufacturing faults with the device. There will be no cost associated to the school or students/parents for any repairs which result from these manufacturing faults.
The school has not received any dates on which this visit will take place, however we know that it should be within the March to April period and last a few days.
This will mean that our current laptop trolleys will be out of action during their designated period of repair - should only be a short amount of time.
Please ensure your student/s bring their laptop in on a designated repair day, this will be posted as soon as the school knows and your student/s will be notified of this date.
Below are the activities the Acer techs will be performing on the laptops.
