Computers for Students

At Substation33 we re-cycle and re-use electronic waste, including computers, that would otherwise end up in landfill or be left to sit in your shed or corporate store room. Unfortunately, up to 80% of students in Logan may not have access to a computer at home. Substation33 provides computers to these students and their families and we are committed to bridging the digital divide in Logan and the greater Brisbane area.

Desktop PCs


If you need a computer for the family we have a variety of desktop computers to suit your requirements. Our computers come with everything you need to plug in and get working within a few minutes - monitor, keyboard, mouse, wifi dongle and all cables.

Priced from:

- suitable for primary school students.

All of our computers come with:

  • Google Chrome

  • Windows 10

  • Microsoft Office (students with an Education Qld or TAFE student email address will have free access to this)

  • Libre Office (a free alternative to Microsoft Office)

  • Minecraft Education App

  • 3 month hardware-only replacement (returned in person)

Of Note:

  • Although Windows is installed, we do not sell Microsoft license keys, thus Windows is not activated. Your use of the device is not restricted in any way, but there will be a watermark on the bottom right hand of the screen saying "you need to activate windows". If the computer is going to a student they may claim a Microsoft key from their school free of charge.
