|Help prepare you child for success on the |
first day of school to the last!
How much technology do you need? What products will meet your child’s school needs? Whether you have a child in grade school, high school, or college, these are questions that are all-too-relevant for today’s student.
For us, having a central home computer used to be enough, but now my 6th-grader has regular online assignments, computer class, and projects to complete requiring the use of popular software products (like MS PowerPoint.) He’s even come home with a picture assignment requiring use of a digital camera and printer. While he has access to these tools at school, if you’ve ever worked on a computer project, you know that having access at home or in a dorm room is a real bonus to not having to get stuck working in the computer lab at school day and night.
These needs put laptops, printers, and ink high on the list of ‘must haves” to prepare students for success during the school shopping season. But what technology will get the job done? How much is enough? How much is too much? And my bottom-line question – what can I afford?
Clearly, Walmart and HP have taken these question and concerns from parents into consideration along with student needs. Products like the the HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm Entertainment PC, the HP Deskjet 3052a e-All-in-One printer, and HP XL ink cartridges (like HP's regular cartridges, but they hold more ink,) are all part of the back-to-school lineup to help prepare your students for the new school year.
The HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm laptop offers a sleek design, a 750G hard drive (ample space to store oodles of homework, pictures, and programs,) and entertainment options that make it a versatile piece of equipment with “cool” factor. (But the real “cool” for mom and dad is the price point is attractive, currently retailing at Walmart for under $650!)
The “beyond school” applications for the HP Deskjet 3052a are infinite, too, as you can print wirelessly from iPads, iPhones, iPod touch, and any device that has access to email (such as a Kindle Fire.) I'm also enticed by the thought of purchasing one for my mother for Christmas, which would allow me to send pictures directly to her of her grandchildren, regularly.
How will you prepare your child for back-to-school this year? What technology is top on your back-to-school wish list?
