As the largest shopping season of the year quickly approaches, some Cerritos College students have already made up their minds on which electronics are must-haves for the holidays.
From cell phones in their pockets to computers in their classrooms, electronics are a major part of college students’ lives.
Apple, Microsoft, and Nintendo released all new products, sparking the attention of many students on the Cerritos campus.
Apple has recently released a plethora of products, ranging from a newer version of their iPod touch, to a miniature version of the iPad and the iPhone 5.
Architecture major Andres Neria has had his sights set on Apple’s new iPod touch for quite some time.
“The new slim look, bigger screen and how it has more functions like an iPhone are what sold me,” he said.
Neria expressed more excitement toward the new releases Microsoft has, stating his plans to acquire a new computer with the new windows system.
Microsoft had a massive launch in October regarding their new Windows 8 platform, establishing it on the market with a wide range of products.
The new Windows 8 software can be found on a range of computers, multiple new phones and a new product, the Microsoft Surface.
The Surface, with custom front page tiles for easy navigation, has incorporated both a screen cover and keyboard.
In gaming, Nintendo’s new Wii-U is set to hit the market Nov. 18, according to the Nintendo website.
It’s the first console from Nintendo to boast high definition graphics with primary controllers that are incorporated with touchscreens to enhance the player’s game play.
Undecided major Jose Hernandez has already placed the console at the top of his shopping list.
“It will be a whole new type of gaming experience that I can’t get anywhere else, and that’s the main reason I want it.”
Undecided major Kevin Guevara is looking forward to something every man needs in his possession.
“I want a TV, probably a Vizio or a Sony, for sports like football and basketball,” Guevara said.
The new E-Series of televisions from Vizio, called Razor LED Smart TV’s, have applications such as YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Facebook and Twitter built in to the system.
From gaming consoles to televisions, tablets to computers, this holiday season is jam-packed with electronics that may drain your wallet but provide a mass amount of entertainment to make it all worthwhile.
