Apple MacBook Pro/Air
Often seen in lecture halls, if you can afford the steep price tag, an Apple MacBook Pro or MacBook Air would be a great choice to surf the web, complete your essays or to stream media.
The MacBook pro, a little bulkier than its cousin the MacBook Air, is suitable for more heavy duty tasks. Coming in 13-inch or 15-inch designs -- with Retina Display if you wish -- you can customize the laptop depending on which processor you want, how much memory, and what storage solutions tickle your fancy.
The MacBook Air is a lighter, more portable laptop, and comes in 11 or 13-inch variants with the same specification options.
If you buy a Mac for school, you are entitled to a $100 gift card for purchases in Apple's App Store.
Price: $999 - $2799
Student survival packages
From a corkscrew to cutlery, an extension lead or a kettle, there are a number of student essentials that you need to take with you -- and something is usually forgotten in the process.
One company, Loft, has created survival packages filled with everything a student may need. A bumper pack or separate kitchen, electrical, bed & bathroom and 'survival emergency' packages can be purchased for students in the United States.
Price: $45 - $125
Sony Playstation 4
Why not Microsoft's new XBox offering you ask? Simply, the Playstation 4 is due for launch earlier, on the 30th of September, while the XBox One is slated for November -- with a higher price tag of $499. Either way, you need something to while away the time you're meant to be studying, right?
