GadgetGuy 2015 back-to-school laptop guide

The last week of January marks the first week that kids have of school, and that means it’s time to start thinking of computers to buy for the kids.

In this quick round-up, we’re looking at tablets and computers, as well as tackling that software angle, because you’re going to need some of that to go with it.
