Salve Regina has partnered with Apple and HP to offer several recommended laptops with extended warranties at a reduced cost. Designed to accommodate varying needs, this program aims to improve students’ learning experience and collaborative abilities. We provide comprehensive hardware and software repair services to students who purchase recommended laptops. Peripherals and consumables are not covered by the extended warranties.
