Offer for Schools
Students with a BYOD - bring your own device - requirement need to be able to buy their own laptop at reduced prices in time for the start of classes or during the first few weeks of school, without having to compromise on the quality of the device. Therefore, in consultation with various vocational and secondary schools / high schools, we conduct a sale of jointly determined laptop models, which are available from stock.

Which laptop models are on offer?
You can choose between a few different laptop models from Apple, HP and Lenovo, which are available from stock or within the specified period.
The laptop should serve you well for several school years. Therefore, a 3-year international warranty is included with all laptop models. Please note the specifications and technical requirements of your school: Apple or Windows, convertible or regular laptop, minimum requirements for processor, memory, etc. If you are not sure which laptop is suitable for your course, you can contact us via email.
What is the added value of purchasing via Projekt Neptun?
We are not interested in selling you a laptop, but in equipping you with a working tool that you can use as easily and comprehensively as possible in class, just like pen and paper before it. We operate a showroom on the ETHZ Hönggerberg campus, where you can view and test the laptops without obligation. If this is too far away, you can book a video consultation.
We only offer laptops from manufacturers that have passed our evaluation process. Thus, we offer high-quality models that are suitable for mobile school and study routines and are configured sensibly and with foresight.
Your school cannot provide software and hardware support. If you have technical problems or questions, Projekt Neptun Support will help you via email, remote support or in person at a Help Point. Should you ever need to send your laptop in for repair, we will provide you with a replacement device free of charge.
Lenovo ThinkPads are high-quality business laptops. Three years of worldwide on-site warranty are included with these laptop models. Warranty extensions and accidental damage protection can be purchased as well.
HP ProBook and EliteBook are high-quality business laptops. Three years of worldwide pickup & return warranty are included with these laptop models. Warranty extensions and accidental damage protection can be purchased as well.
Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are high-quality laptops. We recommend certain configurations to purchase, which you can order at 15% off the Apple price. We recommend adding a third warranty year to our recommended configurations to put Apple laptops on par with HP and Lenovo laptops in terms of warranty.
