From The Desk of MJ Shoer

Student Laptop Buyer’s Guide: Use These 6 Tips When Buying Your Student’s New Laptop This Fall 

Laptop082014School is almost back in session. If you’re in the market for purchasing a new laptop for one of your children (it seems like anyone from elementary schoolchildren to college graduates need a laptop these days, right?), here are 7 tips to get the most out of your laptop purchase. Tip #1: Bigger is NOT necessarily better when it comes to laptops. If your student is on the go, smaller laptops are going to be your best bet. Go for less than 4 lbs. and either 11” or 13” screen size. The SurfacePro, UltraBook or MacBook Airs are all solid options for most students. Tip #2: Pay for a good design.
