Top Tech Picks for College Students

The tech industry is full of useful things for college students. Here are three things that can benefit students this year.
Crock-Pot is on the rise as a great piece of technology students can benefit from. With the stoves still not working in the dorms, a slow-cooker with wireless smartphone capabilities is just what students need. With this new Crock-Pot, people can control the settings of the cooker right from their iPhone. This includes being able to change the temperature and time. Next time you’re hungry, pull up the app on your smartphone, go to class, come back and enjoy a meal. The price for the Wemo Smart Wifi-Enabled Slow Cooker is $125.
Photomath: This useful free app allows you to take a photo of a math problem and the application will show you the results with detailed step-by-step instructions and in depth explanations that teaches students how to learn the topic. This is great for students who are looking to learn efficiently, do homework properly, and pass Professor Kavanaugh’s class.
A third piece of technology that could be very useful to students, not only educationally, but financially is the Lenovo Ideapad 100s-11IBY. This laptop is great because it has 32 gigabytes of storage, which is all a student really needs.
The laptop also has HDMI input for those nights where you just need to hop on Netflix to escape from midterms or finals.
The biggest advantage for students yet is the price. This laptop costs $150 on Amazon. This could help ease a student’s financial burden.
The laptop is 11.6 inches which can easily fit into a student’s backpack and only weighs 2.2 pounds.
