For the eternally keen, back to school means new notebooks, a new backpack, and for students of the 21st century, new gadgets. Gadget hunting can be daunting -- with so many options, choosing the right laptop model to suit your unique needs can take months. Should your iPad be full-sized or mini? Luckily we have you covered with the most student-friendly deals to help with productivity, entertainment and everything in-between.
For the Engineer...
If you don't know that the gadget of the year is the drone, then you have been living under a rock. This item is on everyone's wish list, and now it can appeal even more to engineers who know that they can create a drone that's better than the ones you can buy, as long as they have the right tools. DIY drones are available and require assembly, but are highly customizable.
For the Business Student...
The million-dollar question for these folks: laptop or iPad? Who says you need to choose one or the other? This laptop is giving the Macbook Air a run for its money, and it's able to function as both a tablet and a computer. Already have an iPad? Give it an update with a keyboard case, which can turn it into a laptop-wannabe in an instant!
For the History Major...
Columbus sailed the world before the days of technology. Lucky for you, you don't have to, and you definitely don't have to write your notes with a plain pen and paper either. This smartpen gives you the best of both worlds. Your frantically scribbled History 101 notes are quickly digitized for easy access on your tablets or laptops, meaning bulky notebooks never have to be carried around again.
