      LAPTOPS

       

      One of the most important tools your student needs is a high-quality, dependable laptop. This will serve as a notebook, library, networking tool, study guide and of course, a form of entertainment for those much needed study breaks.

      When helping your student pick out a laptop, there are three main things to consider: battery life, storage and speed. Generally speaking, the longer the battery life, the better. It’s never good to get a low battery message in the middle of a lecture. More storage and faster speeds mean more room for research materials and faster results. Check out our selection of laptops here.

      • PRINTERS

        There’s nothing worse than standing in line at the library, waiting for a printer. What better way to ensure punctual work than a printer of their own. Check out our large selection of printers, perfect for students. Wireless all-in-one printers are convenient and easy to use–saving time, money on print credits and trips to the library!

      • HEADPHONES

        You never know when or where inspiration (or study-panic) will hit and headphones are important for blocking excess noise from busy places on campus, like cafeterias and study halls. There are endless styles and colours to choose from, along with options such as wireless, wired, in-ear, noise reducing and more, that will ensure you find the perfect pair for your student.

      PC ACCESSORIES

      Along with headphones, you'll want to send your student back to school with a good wireless mouse. The right wireless mouse can make navigating around the computer a lot easier. Plus, they work on multiple surfaces and make the occasional gaming break much more fun.
