While I was looking for a 1080p LED TV, I came across the Changhong brand which I have never heard of. Turns out this is one of the largest manufacturer of television sets in China and has recently entered the US market.
Changhong’s 42 Inch 1080p LED TV retails for less than $300 in the market!! You would pay about about 30-40% more to get a television set with same specifications from a more popular brand such as Samsung or LG.
If you are looking for a cheap 1080p laptop that will last atleast a few years then look no further! Acer Aspire V3-572-5217 is one of the cheapest 1080p laptops in the market with decent specifications.
Acer Aspire V3-572-5217
Intel Core i5 4210U
8GB DDR RAM
Windows 8.1 Pro
The laptop has a Intel 4400 graphics card meaning you will be able to run Fifa 14, Total War Rome 2, Dota 2, Counterstrike on medium-high settings.
Here are some Windows 8 laptops that you can get for less than $300! Good for browsing, watching videos online.
Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298
Intel 2.16 GHz Celeron N2830
4 GB DIMM
500 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
15.6-Inch Screen, Mobile Intel HD graphics
Dell Inspiron i3531-1200BK
2.16 GHz Celeron N2830
4 GB RAM
ASUS 15.6-Inch HD Dual-Core 2.16GHz Laptop
Intel 2.16 GHz Celeron N2830
4 GB DDR3L SDRAM
500 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
15.6-Inch Screen, Intel HD Graphics
Even though all of them have almost the same specifications, I would recommend you guys to go with either Toshiba or Asus laptops as they are much more reliable than Dell laptops.
All of the laptops mentioned would be able to play Dota, Minecraft, League of Legends on low settings.
Before you buy a macbook for school, you should be asking yourself two important questions.
Do I have enough money to buy a macbook and you might indeed have it. But while you may spend $1000-2000 on a macbook, it is possible for you to purchase a windows based laptop for less than $500 that might do the job for you. If money is not an issue then go ahead and get yourself a macbook
Do my courses have softwares that can run on macbooks. Science or engineering students usually face this problem when they purchase a macbook and find that the software package designed for the course does not run on Mac OS. There is a solution to this problem which is getting yourself a os virtualization software that will allow you to run windows operating system on macbook.
Believe it or not but Seiki is selling a 4K resolution TV for less than $350!! That is almost for the price of 1080p LED TVs that are selling in the market! If you are a college student, looking for a nice television set then Seiki’s 40 Inch 4K tv would be a really good deal for you.
At the present moment, the price of this LED TV is only $339.00 and if you don’t have a problem getting a used one then that would cost you less than $250!! Look over at Amazon, if you intend to buy a used or refurbished one.
The only limitation of this television set is that at 4K resolution, it has a refresh rate of only 30 hz. That means you won’t find it comfortable using as a monitor or gaming. But if you are looking for something to watch 4k resolution movies on, this would be a good fit

If you are looking to buy a new car then the Toyota Prius C is going to be a really good fit for you. The lowest variant of the car costs about $19,000 making it one of the cheapest hybrid cars in the market. On top of that the car gives about 46-53 mpg making it one of the most fuel efficient cars, and will save you about $300-400 each other in fuel costs compared to other 25-30 mpg cars.
If you are planning to study three-four years at your school then instead of buying a car, you might just opt-in going for the monthly lease or loan. Depending on your financial situation, a lease can be a better option as you will have more money in your hands as compared to if you bought the car with a one time payment.
If you are not interested in hybrids then have a look at Toyota Yaris which has a cost of only $14,000!!
