The Top 5 Must-Have Dorm Room Electronics
Just because you're in college doesn't mean you have to lose touch with the latest in technology. In fact, electronic companies are making products especially for college students. Here are some of the very best as provided by Keuze Helper.
InFocus IN72 Projector
When I first moved into my 3.5-by-3.5-meter dorm room with my roommate, it was apparent that our tiny room was no match for either of our big TVs. But what we did have were huge white walls. So we sold the TVs and bought the InFocus IN72 Projector -- one of the best dorm room investments I've made. We hooked up the projector and now we watch all our TV shows, DVD movies and TiVo recordings on the huge wall. Needless to say, its $630 Cdn price tag isn't for everyone, but it will definitely make you the most popular student on campus.
Bowers-Wilkins iPod Zeppelin
Nearly every college student has an iPod, which means an iPod dock is essential. I opted for the Bowers-Wilkins iPod Zeppelin. With an awesome design and even more awesome sound, it's well worth $700, even though you can easily find it cheaper after the holidays and at online stores such as eBay and Amazon.
Apple computers are taking the college world by storm, making the Apple MacBook (especially the newest edition) another dorm room essential. It's perfect for study sessions, PowerPoint presentations, and rocking out with headphones on. The Apple MacBook is also a lot less susceptible to viruses and other computer harming bugs. The MacBook starts at around $1,260. (Remember to get the 10 percent college student discount!)
TiVo HD DVR
Cramming, going to class and sleeping can all get in the way of watching your favorite TV shows. But that doesn't have to happen with the wonderful invention known as TiVo. You'll never miss another episode of "Lost," "House," "Gossip Girl" or any other great show out there. The whole package runs for about $400.
TomTom GO 930 GPS
A GPS is a must-have for any college student with a car. Many of us find ourselves going to school in a different town, which means we definitely aren't familiar with the streets. The TomTom GO 930 GPS, which sells for about $320, is a great investment and a clever way to ensure you never get lost again.
