The MacBook Pro with Retina Display starts at $2,194.
  •     Canon PowerShot SX260 HS - This gadget tops the list because of a college student’s need to document these precious years of their life.

  •     Samsung Galaxy S3 – Other than ensuring that students call home, this smart phone is the crème de la crème in mobile devices. Its large, smooth touch screen, quadcore processor, voice command recognition and connection speed make the S3 a great choice. This mobile device starts at $549.
  •     Voltaic Backpack ($150-200) – This solar powered gadget is a necessity for the gadget-savvy student. Equipped with 4 Watts of power and multiple converters will charge mobile gadgets quickly while on the go. The padded compartments make toting one’s laptop or tablet safe and convenient. This handy backpack ranges from $150 to $200.
  •     Cerevellum Hindsight 35 – A Perfect gadget for the dorm-dwelling co-ed (sans car) or the student who prefers to pedal around campus.

This is one to watch, for sure. This product is priced around $200.
