Your student says she needs a laptop, but you wonder if a tablet will suffice. This two-in-one will. It’s a super-light laptop complete with the plugs most tablets don’t have: two USB ports for connecting tech extras (like cameras) and an HDMI port to plug in a big monitor for games and movies. It has every angle covered — from desk jockey to geek on the-move. And when tablet envy kicks in, just push a button to separate keyboard from screen: presto, you’ve got a tablet! And like the best tablets, this one has a front and back camera, touch screen, headphone jack, and (Windows) apps. But this tablet operates on Windows 8, so all that traditional software — including Photoshop, Outlook, and games — work, too. Nothing left at home for the sake of portability. In fact, as long as there’s a Wi-Fi connection handy, she’s got the whole wide world in her bag. I can’t think of a better salve for the pain of going back to school.
