Tech for back to school

Techstination feature for Friday, August 25, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       It’s that time of year when families are shopping for tech gear for the new school year.   A survey by the Consumer Technology Association found nearly two thirds of back to school shoppers are looking for tech.   And there are some surprises about what’s most in demand.  The CTA’s Jim Barry…

“So at the top of the list is portable memory.  So that’s number one.  Number two is kind of interesting also, something that some folks might say, wait a second, why would I need one of those.  A calculator.”

At Best Buy, Derek Meister says there are plenty of families making bigger purchases too…

“One of the big things, of course, people are looking for laptop computers.  More than sixty one percent of the college bound students are looking for that.”

And prices are all over the map…ranging from inexpensive Chromebooks…to higher powered Windows and Mac machines.
