If you just found out that you are heading to University in the autumn, then congratulations! But before you head off into adulthood you’re going to need to stock up on some essentials. There are some greats deals off all you need to get you started from Laptops, backpacks, flash drives, wireless keyboards and mice, all the way to the humble pen.
August is always a great time to do that laptop refresh you’ve been thinking about as there are reductions-a-plenty in the run up to the new academic year, like this 15% discount on the 15.6″ Dell Inspiron. It is relatively lightweight at 2.2kg, with an AMD A10 processor, 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Running Windows 10 it’ll be in line for the newly released Anniversary update, packing in more features to Microsoft’s latest operating system.
It’s no good snapping up a great deal on a new laptop but having nothing to carry it around in. This Leitz Traveller Backpack is designed for 15.6″ Laptops, and has a padded laptop pocket specifically to keep your device safe. There is already 56% off, but you can claim an additional 8% discount if you buy before 30th September, which leaves you with more money to spare to buy things to fill the bag’s 20 pockets.
It’s always good to have a flash drive to hand to fill up with backups upon backups of your coursework or dissertation. There is 57% off the Lexar JumpDrive which has a huge 128GB of storage and is USB 3.0 for super quick data transfer.
If you’re anything like me you may find laptop touchpads difficult to use, and prefer using a mouse instead, and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a good one these days. There is 58% off the wireless mouse from Anker, and it also has a unique vertical design that they claim is better for your wrists – who knew?
If a wireless mouse isn’t quite enough for you, then you should take a look at Anker’s wireless keyboard and mouse set. There is a 53% discount on the combo with a full sized keyboard, and a 2-in-1 receiver so you only have to use up one of your USB ports.
Some people think that writing with a pen and paper is dated, and while we do most of our work on computers these days, there’s nothing wrong with wanting a pen that writes well, feels comfortable, and looks good too. Make Use Of the 21% discount on Parker’s most well known ballpoint pen – the Vector.
