There will be a handout covering specifications of typical laptop/notebook computers and a special worksheet that each student will fill out covering specifications for the computer that best fit their needs

We will discuss how to approach the choice of whether to purchase a new tablet (touchscreen) computer (e.g., iPad, Nook, Kindle) vs. a laptop computer. You will also be introduced to the new Windows 8 computers that are just now coming on the market.
