Tech experts talk back-to-school gadgets


With a new school year beginning, parents and students are looking for the best ways to make sure they succeed in their classes. 

7News spoke to the experts at Best Buy, who shared a few helpful gadgets that will tech out dorm rooms for college students. 

And of course you can’t forget appliances like mini fridges and microwaves. While they might not help students study, they’re usually a dorm room staple. 

There are also many laptop options, so tech experts advise students shopping to make sure to choose one that fits their needs. 

“For homework and everything we have two in one laptops with note-taking capabilities,” said Best Buy sales supervisor Ben Westfall. “A lot of cool gadgets like your Google Homes and Amazon Echoes that can actually tell you different measurements, and convert stuff for you, times, dates stuff like that. It’s really cool stuff.”

Westfall also said to make sure to pay attention to warranties and other options when buying electronics.

He added that if there is something wrong, Geek Squad is always there to help.
