Best Back to School Technology

Oct 1, 2017

The end of summer signifies a few different things; cooler air, shorter days, and back to school. For high school and college students, this also usually means that you’ll need to replace some of your school supplies from the year before. New gadgets and technology are constantly coming out, so when it comes time to buy something new, it can be really intimidating to figure out what you need.

The right laptop

A laptop is the perfect device for school. You can work on your homework and assignments from absolutely anywhere, which is especially helpful for doing study groups or working in the library. There are so many different laptops to choose from, so there will definitely be something out there that’s perfect for you. Make sure you do a lot of research on the longevity of the laptop, responsiveness, recalls, and battery life before you make a selection.

External hard drive

You don’t want to be stuck trying to save your report that’s due in the morning, and realize you have no space left on your laptop. Or even worse, have your computer crash or restart and realize that you lost all the work you’ve slaved over for the last three hours. An external hard drive is a great idea to avoid both of these problems. It’s a good idea to backup all of your homework before turning it in.


Chargeable backpack

This device can be a game changer. Backpacks that can charge your devices have been released; this means that while you’re walking to or from classes, or even while you’re sitting in class, you can easily charge your laptop and phone.


Protective accessories for phone and laptop

Electronic devices can be really expensive. The best products tend to cost the most. If you’re going to be willing to spend such a hefty amount on a single item, it’s a good idea to make sure you don’t waste that money and have to replace the device if the device were to break. Always have a protective case on both your laptop and your phone. You may think it doesn’t look as sleek, but you’ll be grateful when you drop your new laptop, and the case prevents the entire thing from shattering.


Wireless mouse

If you work from a variety of different places, a wireless mouse is an excellent idea. This gives you mobility no matter what kind of laptop you have, and no matter where you’re studying or working.
