Survey: More Students “Cannot Live Without” Computer Than Cell Phone or TV
According to a recent survey commissioned by Circuit City, more college students say they need a computer than a cell phone or television. The “Just What I Need for College Survey,” which polled 2,300 college students, revealed that 72 percent of them characterized computers as something they “cannot live wihtout” as compared to 53 percent who said the same thing about cell phones and 21 percent who gave that status to TVs. 72 percent also noted a preference for laptops over desktops. More than half said they started their back to school tech shopping in June or July.
Circuit City has released these results simultaneous with the announcement of their free PC Check-up promotion, which runs until August 26. Circuit City technicians will identify viruses, clean temporary files, check hard drive capacity and memory usage, remove dust and debris and provide a written report identifying problems. Services to fix said problems can be purchased at half price by students and teachers while the promotion lasts.
