If you know a student who’s graduating from college this spring, they’re about to enter the “real world,” which can be a scary place for the uninitiated. Equip them with the gear they need to make the transition, from a business notebook to a speedy tablet or a gorgeous smartphone. Gifting some accessories like a fitness band, noise-cancelling headphones and a TSA-friendly messenger bag can’t hurt, either.
No matter what industry he's entering, every college grad needs a notebook with business features. Lenovo's ThinkPad Edge E430 is a durable system with security features like a fingerprint reader and business-friendly features such as InstantResume, which helps users reconnect to the Web quickly, and Mobile HotSpot, which lets the E430 act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five people. Throw in long battery life, a great keyboard and excellent audio, and your favorite grad has a power machine that will get him through his work day.
