Make their studies easy, and your shopping easier

Picking out the perfect technology gift for the college student in your life can be a challenge.

Which tech brand is best for their interests? Would they prefer an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X for game development, or a Mac mini for collaborative design sessions on the go? How about the best software to help them build their skills? Do they need the entire Adobe Creative Suite or just Fresco? Have the expert (your student!) be your guide and allow them to pick out exactly what they need most this holiday season.
