In June I had an opportunity to attend Future Shop’s Back to School Preview Event. These days technology is every student’s best friend. Laptops, tablets, smartphones and other tech stuff help significantly in the learning process and become an integral part of student’s life.
The first impression of the showcase was that everything intended to be thinner, faster and more comfortable and easy to use. Ultrabooks from most of the brands were incredible, thin and light: Samsung, Acer, LG, HP and others. The only thing I hope in the future companies will add more colours to the tech gadget (not only black and silver) to make stylish girls happier with varieties to choose from.
Samsung tablets were the ones caught our attention: Samsung 11.6" 64GB Slate PC Tablet with Wi-Fi fully loaded with Windows 7 with a Bluetooth keyboard, Digitizer pen and docking station in the box, it has the full functionality of a laptop and the portability of a tablet. Great for busy and fast- pacing student life.
Second one Samsung 10.1" 16GB Galaxy Tab 2, equipped with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform enhanced by Samsung TouchWiz, the best combination of price and functionality: 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass display, robust Dual Core processor.
HP ENVY 14" 2nd Gen Intel Core i5-2467M Spectre Ultrabook (14-3090CA) with a multi-glass surface design and a whole lot of power behind it, the HP ENVY 14-3090 was born to perform and gets up to 9.5 hours on a single charge.
As for accessories Logitech impressed with comfort and convenience, its products designed to make you feel so comfortable that once you try do not want to use anything else like Logitech’s android wireless keyboard.
One moment I realized how much tech gear nowadays students have to get (as tech stuff is not only for engineering and IT students any more) including smartphones, laptops (tablets), printers, storage devices, accessories and software. And I am glad FutureShop carries the essential tech for students to be successful in their studies at comparable prices and from the best world brands.
