When do you need to purchase
a back to school laptop?
I remember learning how to type in a high school freshman class and spending afternoons in the school library learning how to navigate the internet. Our home dial up simply wasn’t fast enough to keep up but we didn’t know otherwise. My nine year old daughter laughs when I tell her only one person could be online in our home and laughs even harder when I try to explain no one could be on our landline phone, the only phone in our home, while someone was using the internet. She’s had access to the internet from the time she was a toddler and learned to type well before she was learning most other subjects in school. Often we’ve wondered when is the right time to purchase a back to school laptop. First grade? Fourth grade? High school? I didn’t get my own first computer until going off to college and I’m sure my parents weren’t fully convinced it was necessary. Times have changed and currently you can save $100 off your HP Envy x360 from Best Buy!
The decision is different for every family and with sensitivity to not having access to computers, I’m not here to share the answer. But if you are ready to make a back to school purchase through July 28th you can save $100 on the purchase of an HP Envy 13 inch or HP Envy 15 inch from Best Buy.
The HP Envy x360 laptops are 2-in-1 devices that can transfer from a laptop to a tablet in seconds so it’s idea for the parent toggling between a laptop or tablet purchase.
These touch-screen laptops come with Windows Ink capabilities and a Windows operating system so you can write on the screen with your stylus. AMD processors make them fast and thin so you can take them with you anywhere you go!
How your child can use a laptop for school
She’s just starting fourth grade but already her classroom assignments are requiring after school research. With a busy on the go schedule, it’s great for our daughter to be able to work on homework anywhere we go.
Last year my daughter used a computer often to make and print items for classroom projects. Her Chinese New Year demonstration board and travel brochures were personal favorites but she really enjoys having the ability to print from her own laptop.
Yes, she goes to the library and yes, she has access to books. However, she has always found a great love for reading books from an online library too.
Photography and editing
As my daughter is growing she is more and more interested in learning about photography. She has her own camera and with her own laptop, has enjoyed hands on editing so she can learn as she matures with photography.
Coding classes seem to be all the rage with elementary and middle school aged children currently. A coding course on her laptop is a great way to learn with a hands on experience.
The more comfortable your child is using a keyboard, the easier it will be to learn to type correctly. You can also purchase typing courses online for your child to use from their own laptop.
She’s just about to start fourth grade but for our family, a laptop for our child makes sense now. It’s amazing to watch what she is learning knowing she is so far ahead with technology of where I was at that same age.
