My, how times have certainly changed! Back in my years of school, all I remember needing was pencils, pens, paper, and a notebook and we were ready to get to class. I am afraid to see the school supply list these days!
Nowadays, technology plays a huge part in schools. Students of all ages do a lot of work on their computers and even complete online lessons. Older students will need access to their own computers, printers, and the internet. Ack! Luckily, parents can send their kids off to school knowing that they are prepared with affordable computer and printer options from Hewlett Packard.
Some of the highlighted HP products are available at Walmart, just in time for the back to school season. Please do not let your poor college freshman suffer long nights at the campus library waiting for others to leave so she could finish her essay because she didn’t have her own computer. Then, when she leaves her student ID in another purse, she’ll have to run back home to get the stupid ID and lose her place in line! Speaking from experience, can you tell?
