What are the back-to-school "must haves"?

In today's high-tech classrooms, tablets and laptops have become just as important for students as pens and notebooks. The portable simplicity of a tablet is perfect for younger public-school children, helping them keep pace and handle their schoolwork with ease. Meanwhile, many older kids appreciate the added power and versatility of a dedicated laptop. To cover all your bases, you can even combine the best of both worlds with a device like the shape-shifting ASUS VivoBook Flip. 

When it comes to college students, back-to-school shopping takes on even greater importance. Moving into a dorm can be a stressful experience, but the right supplies can ease the transition. The top priorities include taking care of a dorm room furniture, kitchen essentials, and personal care items. A new television or smart video calling device can also go a long way toward keeping the blues away. Finally, don't forget to throw in a gift card or two to help cover any other unexpected needs.
