It's all convenience and affordability with ITEZ's new laptop subscription service
For the most part, it’s safe to say that the benefits of modern technology like smartphones and notebooks far outweigh the cost. After all, they can connect us with friends and family at a moment’s notice, or let us take our work and entertainment virtually everywhere we go.
But in spite of all the conveniences that they afford us, the fact remains that today’s devices don’t come cheap, and it is certainly not worth paying the full sum for, say, a notebook that some of us might not have much use for outside of work. In such cases, it would certainly be helpful to gain access to such devices at an affordable monthly fee, and that’s where ITEZ’s (read as IT Easy) device subscription plans come into the picture.
Why subscribe in the first place?
But the next question here is: apart from helping us avoid the cost of actually buying these devices, why should we go through all the trouble of signing up? Wouldn’t it be better to just own our devices like we usually do?
Indeed, “device ownership” might seem like a no-brainer on paper, but there are actually loads of benefits in favour of device subscriptions too. First up, it’s an indisputable fact that everyone loves staying ahead of the tech curve, and in this case, that refers to having the latest and fanciest gadgets on the market. With this in mind, signing up with ITEZ allows you to switch out your notebook for a newer, more up-to-date model every 24 months, with no strings attached to boot. Notably, it’s also a particularly viable option for students who might only need their notebooks for academic purposes, as the company’s plans have no hidden costs and are completely deposit and interest-free.
The second reason is even simpler than the first - space. In our fast-moving (and often cluttered) society, space has become as much of a commodity as information, and we all know the unpleasant feeling of seeing older devices start collecting dust in the cabinet once you pick up a newer model. Because of that, not having to worry about shelving your old products takes one less thing off your mind, and you can still enjoy the latest gadgets while you’re at it and save money too.
Device Subscription 101
Now, you might be wondering how this all works, and if you have an existing Netflix/Disney+ or mobile phone subscription, then ITEZ’s subscription system is going to be easy to wrap your head around. By paying an affordable sum every month over 24 months, which currently caps out at a mere S$39.90 per month, users are able to select a notebook model of their choice, get it delivered to their home for use as their own device, and save money at the same time.
The company currently has five subscription plans available for users to pick from with each offering a different laptop grade. As a point of reference, the above mentioned S$39.90 per month subscription actually snags you a 13.3-inch Apple MacBook Air
for two years. Putting the numbers into perspective, you’ll pay a total sum of S$957.60 over the entire subscription period, effectively saving you a third
of the S$1,449 you would have spent on owning the notebook otherwise (and yes, that's the actual retail price now
). Considering how we loved the prior Intel-powered MacBook Air
, the newer one offered by ITEZ running the Apple M1 chip is just splendid at this delectable monthly subscription price.
In fact, the launch-exclusive subscription plans offer savings of up to 40% as compared to purchasing a device normally.

Of course, if your purse-strings happen to be a little tight, there are four other, cheaper subscriptions for you to select, with the Lenovo Ideapad subscription going for as low as just S$9.90 per month that can cosily manage daily office tasks and general academic needs.
These five subscription plans are just a start and ITEZ will certainly be adding more devices and options in due time, including everything from tablets to smartphones running both iOS and Android software.
It even comes with contingency plans
Cheap costs aren’t the only thing you can look forward to with an ITEZ subscription. On top of being free of hidden costs as mentioned, ITEZ devices all come with a warranty that will be valid for the full duration of a user’s subscription, and this warranty even entitles them to a temporary loan device upon request should their original notebook require repairs. This means that you’ll be able to stay on top of your work and other tasks at all times, something which might not be possible if you had bought a notebook as per normal and something goes south.
Sign up now!
To celebrate the launch of this new subscription service, ITEZ is also dropping some added bonuses for signing up with them early.
The first 500 users to sign up for their newsletter will receive a S$10 discount code and enjoy complimentary doorstep delivery. Indeed, this might not seem like a big deal at first glance, but when you consider that the monthly instalments starting from S$9.90, that’s a full offset of the first-month subscription fees, and other plans don’t go beyond S$39.90 - that’s effectively the same as getting a neat 25% off your first month of use.
With that in mind, a device subscription with ITEZ.SG is certainly worth exploring if you’d like to try out the latest tech gadgets without having to make the full financial commitment, or if you urgently need a notebook for work or academic purposes. It’s actually an incredibly nifty option if you think about it, but above all, it’s certainly interesting that nobody has thought about doing something like this before. Welcome to a new Device-as-a-Service model for consumers and businesses alike!
