These days, starting the school year out on the right foot isn’t just about doing your summer reading and buying a few pens and pencils. Having the latest high-tech gadgets for school is the key to staying organized, keeping up with homework and fitting in. Forget textbooks and old-school Trapper Keepers, the 2013-2014 school year is all about tablets and electronic note-takers. Here are six of the must-have back to school electronics for students.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
This year’s generation of tablets is made for a lot more than reading and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is no exception. The 5.3” gadget is light and thin and can help students in nearly every daily task, including reading papers, taking notes, watching videos, keeping a schedule and more. The multi-purpose tablet has a HD Super AMOLED display and is equipped with an 8 megapixel camera. There are also endless apps that make the Galaxy Note completely customizable for every student’s needs. Though it comes in at around $400, its versatility is its main draw.
