Chip Shot: Computers Top List of ‘Must-Haves’ for Back-to-School

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.
