Back to School with a PC That Fits
It’s already time for back to school and my little sister is one of thousands who will be a college freshman this year.
Part of the process of her moving to school includes buying her a laptop. When considering what to buy, she consulted me. Some of the items on her technology check list include: light weight, portability and speed. She also wants something she can watch movies and TV on.
Needless to say, I’ve learned a lot about the PC needs of a college student in the past few weeks. All students has the same basic needs: a great processor, lots of memory and long battery life. But what else? To help my little sis make her decision, I showed her a series of YouTube videos created by Intel to help college student wade through the tech waters as they decide what tech is best for them this back to school season.
The series breaks down each “type” of student based on how they use their PC’s. My little sister is the “Socialite” meaning she uses her computer for EVERYTHING including keeping in touch with friends and family, taking it to class, checking the news watching videos and TV, it’s basically attached to her hip.
You can check out the rest of the videos to help determine which type of student you are on Channel Intel on YouTube. As an added bonus, Intel will be hosting an online panel of students and their parents to discuss the best technology for each student type Wednesday August 19th and Wednesday August 26th from 9am-10am PST on Facebook and here: www.globecampus.ca/intel.
My little sister has a about a month left until she moves to campus so she hasn’t purchased her PC yet, but at least now she has a great idea of what to look for. Happy PC hunting!
