Resources for Parents

Purchasing a Device

Here are a couple of links. Mr. Porter often recommends Walmart because of the insurance.


There is no need for a device with lots of memory. You want something sturdy. If you want fancy extras, that’s more expensive, but we've seen refurbished dells from $50 to new devices at just over $200 (not including insurance). The lifespan of a Chromebook is 3 yrs under normal use and can last longer if well cared for.

Amazon or Walmart


Please contact Mr. Porter directly at (512)689-3821 if you need help. Call or text.

Purchasing a Device from Amazon

Some devices are reasonably priced on Amazon.

Purchasing a Device from Walmart Online

The least expensive devices are Dell Chromebooks through WalMart.
