Computer and TV


A computer and a television should be no-brainers for any college student. A TV/DVD combination will provide hours of entertainment during downtime, but some students these days are skipping TVs and instead streaming TV shows and movies on their computer. A laptop or desktop computer is a must when it's time to grind out papers and projects.

Some dealers offer a free printer with a new computer, which will save your child last-minute runs to the school library printer.
