2018 University tech must-haves

Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker

The Soundlink Micro is one of Bose’s newest products, and also one of their most affordable. It’s super lightweight and waterproof - perfect for throwing in your backpack, or using on the go, without compromising on sound quality.

For such a small unit, this speaker packs a punch in terms of volume. It also has the ability to connect to another Bose speaker for double the volume, using the Bose Connect App. Say goodbye to tinny tunes played from a phone sitting in a drinking glass.

The silicone cover features a nifty clip on the back, allowing you to attach it to whatever you wish, making it ideal for adventure times (the six hour battery life is also a win). Choose from black, navy blue or bright orange.

Microsoft Surface Laptop

This laptop is made for students - it’s ultra portable, weighs just over 1kg, and looks pretty damn schmick. This unit also boasts up to 14 hours of battery life. The touch screen comes in handy when you’re looking for tablet capability, with the processing power of a laptop.

The surface is available in four colours: Platinum, Burgundy, Cobalt Blue and Graphite Gold.

Forget televisions - they’re bulky and take up too much room. In the last few years portable projectors have become increasingly affordable, meaning you can set up your own personal cinema anywhere.

No more having four people crowd around one laptop screen to watch the latest Game of Thrones episode. Make a night of it, pull up some beanbags and get the popcorn in the microwave.

We hate to break it to you, but the 'fresher-five' is a real thing (for the uninitiated, this refers to the five extra kilos of weight that seem to pile on in your first year of uni).
