An Intel survey conducted by Uthink examined the technology needs and expectations across North America of incoming college freshmen compared to their parents’ experience a few decades ago. Although there are several differences between then and now, there is agreement among parents and students today that a new computer is the top tech device needed when heading back to school. However, more than half of the American parents find that the abundance of tech choices offered today—from 2 in 1 devices, notebooks and Chromebooks to portable All-in-One PCs, Mini PCs, tablets and smartphones—can be overwhelming, and nearly 9 out of 10 parents are seeking advice on the type of device(s) they should purchase. To help parents and students of all ages find the devices that best fit their needs this school year, check out Intel’s 2015 Back-to-School Buyer’s Guide. View the press kit for more information.
