Do you know what the number one graduation gift students will ask for this year? A computer. No surprise – it’s a big ticket item and they need it for success in the coming years. Whether they are becoming entrepreneurs (like the 61% of students that expect to start their business), entering the workforce (like the estimated 2.8 million of US students who will this year) or starting college (like 66% of high school students), a laptop is the #1 gift on their list.
Yet, parent’s number one concern is price – which makes sense. It’s already expensive to send a high school senior to college, and adding the cost of a computer makes it even more expensive. We don’t think parents should over spend on a computer. Instead, there are a great group of PCs at affordable prices that come with exactly what they need to start a business, join the workforce or enter college.
