6 Things You Need For Going Back to School [MacBook Giveaway]

Mihir Patkar 22-09-2016

Technology is an integral part of education. To kick start your school year, you need to be using the right hardware and software. You’d be surprised how much you’re missing out on.

Common logic says that the most popular choice must be the best. But that’s not always true. For example, everyone might tell you to get on the Dropbox train, but Google Drive might be better. And no matter which laptop you use, it’s time to dump Chrome and Firefox for Opera.

So here’s what you should load up on before you go back to school.

And you might be able to load up on a new $1,299 MacBook, because we’re giving one away!

256GB MacBook

1. Laptop

You’re going to need a laptop. But the right laptop depends on several different factors. I still think the MacBook Air is a great value Want A Great Value Laptop? Buy A MacBook Air Unlike many of Apple's other products, the MacBook Air is different. It's actually better value for money than any Windows laptop at that price. Read More , but there are other options too.

Back to School Macbook Air

We have a full guide to buying laptops depending on your major The Best Laptops for School by Major in 2019 The best laptop for any student depends on what they study. Here are the best laptops for school by major. Read More . For example, an architect might need a discrete GPU, but a programmer should go for a Dell XPS 13 (CA/UK).

If you’re happy with your existing laptop, maybe give it a performance boost. Install Linux to become a better student 5 Reasons Linux Can Help You Become a Better Student You might be thinking about purchasing some new software for heading back to school, but have you thought about trying a new operating system? Linux might be perfect for you — here's why. Read More this year and make your old laptop sing.

2. Smartphone

The right smartphone for you pretty much comes down to choosing between Android and iOS.

For iPhones, it’s pretty simple. It’s matter of finding out if you should iPhone 7 Plus works for you Why You Might Want to Skip the iPhone 7 & Wait for the iPhone 8 2017 marks ten years of iPhones, and rumor has it that Apple has something very special planned. Read More .

3. LiveScribe Smartpen 3

You don’t necessarily need to record the whole lecture. But some important points are worth remembering. Instead of learning shorthand, get the LiveScribe Smartpen 3 (CA/UK).

It looks and acts like a regular pen, but it also has some smart technology inside. The Smartpen 3 can record audio whenever you write something. So even if you don’t capture the professor’s words verbatim on paper, you’ll get it as a recorded MP3 file. Whatever you write and record is sent to its app, which transcribes the audio into text. Cool, eh?

No wonder this was one of our best back-to-school gadgets in 2016 The Best Back-to-School Gadgets in 2016 A new year at college or school can stress out anyone. Arm yourself with the right tech gear, so that you can spend more time learning and making friends, rather than struggling with silly things. Read More .

4. Evernote or OneNote

There is always a debate about which note-taking app is better, Evernote or OneNote Evernote vs. OneNote: Which Note-Taking App Is Right for You? Evernote and OneNote are amazing note-taking apps. It's hard to pick between the two. We compared everything from interface to note organization to help you choose. What works best for you? Read More . To be fair, both have their advantages.

Evernote is the note-taking app that can help you manage your school load. Here are some smart note organization tips for class. Read More . It can set reminders, create notes, annotate PDFs, and much more.

But you can also do most of that on OneNote The Best Evernote Alternative Is OneNote and It's Free The market is drenched in note-taking apps competing with Evernote. But there is only one serious Evernote alternative. Let us explain why that is OneNote. Read More . Plus, OneNote has other cool featuers, like its built-in document scanner and whiteboard reader. I’d favor OneNote, but it’s really your call. Both these tools are excellent.

5. Google Drive

For any student, Google Drive is an invaluable tool. Almost everyone you meet will have a Google account, and several universities even use Google Apps officially.

Back to School Google Drive

You’d be amazed on how Google Drive can keep you organized in school. Its search feature alone makes it worth having. Considering how well it hooks into your Gmail, that’s just an added bonus.

Google Drive also comes with its own built-in office suite. Honestly, it’s the best.

We'll help you get organized for the new term. Read More .

6. Opera

Get over your love-hate relationship with Chrome and switch to Opera. It’s the best browser for students going back to school.

Opera lets you access blocked sites with its built-in free VPN (virtual private network) What A VPN Tunnel Is & How To Set One Up Read More . Using this VPN is also a secure way to connect to public Wi-Fi networks, like the one on your campus. Read our detailed review of Opera VPN Get Free Unlimited VPN on the New Opera Desktop Browser Opera is doing a lot to lure users back, and its latest feature is a doozy. Opera now comes with unlimited, free VPN for life! Read More to find out everything about it.

Opera’s built-in Power Save mode will boost your laptop’s battery life. Once on, it will reduce battery consumption without affecting your performance. When you’re out at class all day, you certainly want your laptop to make it through.

You don’t need to install ad blocking extensions in Opera. That too is built in, stopping useless elements of a web page to load it faster. Plus, it’s safer, lighter, and faster than third-party extensions. We do request that you whitelist MakeUseOf in your ad blocker Please Whitelist MakeUseOf In Adblock: A Plea From a Former Adblock Filter Developer It’s no secret that we’re not huge fans of Adblock here at MakeUseOf.

Make the most of your widescreen by activating sidebar extensions in Opera. Go to Menu > View > Show Sidebar to turn it on. Here are a few cool sidebar extensions that’ll help you this school year:

  • Classic Notes [No Longer Available] — A simple scribble pad to write notes quickly.
  • Google Keep Sidebar — Access the best to-do list app in your sidebar.
  • Side Calculator — A quick calculator so you don’t need to open another.

    I'm giving serious consideration to actually getting a MacBook Air after many years of being PC-Windows/Linux only. I had Mac systems back in 1984-1991 and felt totally burned by the hardware failures and Apple's abysmal warranty and support. That viewpoint has changed with the newest systems that seem to be rock solid and their OS X foundation in Unix.
    I'm also considering trying out Opera again after a few years away from the browser. I'd love to get this MacBook Air as a prize and load Opera!

    I kind of moved away from Opera when they discontinued the music sharing (not downloading, mind you, just being able to listen to my friends' playlists) several years ago...
    But I recently had some problems with ads on my phone, and so I downloaded Opera for Android and haven't had a single problem since.
    As for the MacBook, I'd want the space grey!
