It’s that time of year again – the time when the students are making their final plans of the summer and doing all of their back-to-school shopping. If you’ve got a student getting ready to go back to school or college, why not send them back in style with the hottest new tech gadgets? They’ll love the connectivity – and should something ever happen, you can bring the broken device to LifeLine in Jacksonville and we’ll get it working like new again in no time!

Hottest Back-to-School Tech Gadgets for Your Student

1. Chromebook: Chromebooks are minimalistic laptops that operate primarily with cloud technology. They are very lightweight, fast and use popular Chrome mechanics and browsing. They are also quite a bit cheaper than most other new laptops on the market, making them great classroom laptops. Look into models made by Asus.

2. MacBook: If your student is involved in complex projects, graphic design, or just needs a laptop that can act as a primary computer, look into getting a MacBook or MacBook Pro. These computers sport incredible resolution and that sleek Apple design…although they also tend to be some of the most expensive laptops on the market.

3. Surface Tablet: Microsoft’s Surface line of hybrid tablets has grown better and better. They are particularly popular for business needs, which could also prove useful for your student – especially if they like using a tablet.

4. iPhone: Now that iPhones come in a larger Plus size, they have more uses than ever before. Remember, we offer iPhone 6 Plus repair in Jacksonville and general Jacksonville iPhone repair in case the phone slips one too many times.

5. Portable Battery Charger: These chargers allow you to immediately charge your phone if it’s near dying, ideal for long school sessions where the outlets are quickly taken up by others. There are larger backpack-based versions that can be used with laptops, too.

6. Wireless Speakers: This is a tech gadget that’s designed more for relaxing or parties. These speakers, usually Bluetooth-based, are a great accompaniment for dorms.

7. Smartphone Case: To avoid damage when a student’s phone is inevitably dropped (or thrown, kicked, smashed, etc.), a great smartphone case is important. Look for a case that is rated highly for protection, especially against impacts, and help keep that phone shiny and safe. If something does go wrong, then LifeLine’s iPhone 6 Plus repair in Jacksonville and related Jacksonville iPhone repair services can make it all right again.

8. A Great Flash Drive: Flash drives still have a place at school – today’s secure flash drives with encryption and pass codes enabled are great for transferring sensitive information that cannot be stolen.
