So, what are the most wanted products this back-to-college season? MRY tracked dozens of items across several categories and found that while the big-ticket items like tablets, big screen TVs and gaming consoles are on students’ wish lists, they will spend the majority of their money on essentials for class: laptops, printers, software and clothing.

  • Laptops – 40% bought new, 36% plan to buy
  • Productivity Software – 24% bought new, 29% plan to buy
