Face it parents, back-to-school supplies are just way more fun these days. Here’s a look at great technology products to outfit your student for the year ahead.

REDMOND, Wash. — Aug. 14, 2012 — Back to school used to mean the smell of fresh pencil shavings, an undented lunch box, and the sharp crackling of new Velcro on that new Trapper Keeper.

Although those simple pleasures may still echo through the hallways, today’s students need a bit more in their backpacks to help them keep up with their studies. The latest Windows laptops and tablets can help them research that big science report, look up their grades online, and email their teacher about assignments. Even a new Windows phone can help by enabling them to stay in touch with classmates and coordinate after-school activities — and while they’re waiting for the bus, they just might sneak in a game or three All this cool, new technology could make anyone want to head back to school!

With that in mind, here’s a look at some helpful technology products to get students back to school and keep them on track with their studies. To sweeten the deal, students buying a new Windows PC worth US$699 or more before Sept. 9 can get a free Xbox!
