New and improved laptop
Chances are the laptop recent graduates got before freshman year of college is at least a little out of date. A new, up-to-date laptop will give new members of the workforce the edge that they need. Make sure to look into specific brands and capabilities, as the kind of laptop a graduate needs depends on the field he or she is going into. For example, a film major needs a lot of hard drive space for video storage, whereas economics majors might want to spring for something with lots of memory and discrete graphics.
