A gift and a tech upgrade for your college student 

College is hard enough, but if you don’t have the software professors expect, then there’s a lot of work you may struggle to complete. Pearson, one of the larger textbook producers in the country, even recommends that students master Microsoft Office

A lifetime license gives your student the tools and the time to get their work done. Work on essays, resumes, contracts, and more in Microsoft Word. Format, analyze, and visualize data in Excel. Create engaging slideshows, animations, and posters in PowerPoint. Your student could even get some practice sending professional emails to their professors using Outlook, a subject that comes up often enough that professional email guides are common. You can even find email templates in Outlook to help build good habits. 

Even the basic version of Teams could be valuable for group projects, and OneNote is a great tool for lecture notes. 

Wow your student with a computer to put that Microsoft Office License onto. An Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB RAM give it enough operating power to run a variety of apps, and the 128GB SSD has plenty of room for notes, presentations from class, and productivity apps. Connect other displays to your laptop using the Thunderbolt port if you want to create a desktop workstation. You could even link a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
