Gizmodo Back to School 2023 Guide

Back to school feels different now than it did in the days before the pandemic. Today, hybrid learning is second nature to many students, and a reliable computer is critical even for elementary school students, not just high school and college students.

In addition to a laptop, Chromebook, or tablet, students will likely also need virtual meeting gear, some fun things to blow off some steam, and surprisingly, some even need a printer. As hard as we try, the need to print out papers or documents hasn’t entirely gone away.

The following expert tips are a great way to get started with back-to-school shopping.

The best laptop to get through four years of college
Apple MacBook Air

Now available in both 13-inch and 15-inch versions, the MacBook Air remains one of the most universal computers money can buy.

Note that this is still a hefty investment: $1,099 for the current 13-inch version and $1,299 for the new 15-inch version.
