Every trade comes with a set of tools particular to that line of work that make the job more efficient and effective for the labourer. The availability of those tools will determine how effective and productive the worker will be. This same truth holds true for students as well. Modern day education is not limited to just the traditional classroom environment any more.
Technology is taking strides everywhere, and the classroom is no exception. Just as a farmer knows which tools he needs, it is necessary for students to know what tools they need to improve their productivity and be as successful as possible in their studies.
There are a few gadgets listed here that are necessary for students in this modern technologically advanced world since they are very crucial to academic performance. Let’s take a look at them:

The Apple MacBook Pro is an excellent laptop for students. The enormous 500 GB storage is more than enough space for all needed academic documents and resources, and it has excellent wireless Internet connectivity that facilitates research work.
A 13.3” LED-backlit display and 1280-by-800 resolution with Intel HD Graphics 4000 makes it excellent for an enhanced user interface, for quality image pixels and video graphics. This 13.3” screen sized laptop makes it an easy fit for the average sized school bag, so you won’t need to carry a big bag around campus.

Personally I think this phone was designed for students who may not have the luxury of spending large amounts to get the expensive phones. With a smaller budget, you can purchase one from local stores and online stores including Amazon.
It comes with a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait Processor and a 1GB Ram. That means you won’t have to go through the stress of dealing with system freezes when accessing your apps or playing games. However, a quad-core processor is the best as dual-core may be slow on some very high spec games.
It has an internal memory of 32GB that is big enough to hold your needed files. The operating software is Windows 8 upgradeable to Windows 8.1. Its operating software helps you easily work with the phone like you would with your Windows PC, while completing assignments and other word processing activities with Microsoft Word and Excel can be done conveniently.
The good news is that it has an astonishing 8mega pixel back camera from Carl Zeiss optics and a front camera of 1.3MP – if you are a photogenic person, you’ll surely love this, especially since it’s not expensive.
Meanwhile, you can access all other features such as Internet Wi-Fi and data connection, Bluetooth, hotspot accessibility, etc., as well as numerous social media widgets and apps on this phone. It has dimensions of 133 x 68.9 x 10.1mm and weighs 162g, which makes it easy to carry and handle.
It has a 4.5” AMOLED multi-touchscreen with PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack Display and Protective Corning Gorilla Glass 2 that gives it an excellent user interface and video playback quality.
This is truly an excellent phone for students.
