Let’s face it, videogames aren’t just for kids anymore. Some 38 percent of gamers in the USA are between 18-34, while 20 percent are under age 18. Still, that’s still a sizeable population able to enjoy the fruits of increased mobility, fast cellular connections, and abundant Wi-Fi.
What that means is a lot of students are on the move with laptops, tablets, and smartphones every day. Organizing, protecting, and powering all that gear can become a bit of a nightmare.
What can students (and their parents) do?
CORE Gaming offers essential gaming gear for players of all types and abilities that’s been vetted for quality, performance, and style. Here are a few of CORE Gaming’s top picks you can rely on to protect your tech and enhance your gaming experience:
The Alienware Starter Package is ideal for mobile gamers. It includes the rugged Alienware Vindicator 13″/14″ Briefcase. Designed for 13- to 14-inch laptops, this case features three zippered compartments for storing small laptops, mobile devices, and gaming accessories. Together with the included Alienware Vindicator 2.0 Sleeve, it provides optimal protection and storage. This package also includes a CORE Gaming mouse mat and a MicroClear 3-pack of self-adhesive microfiber cleaning pads.
For serious gamers with lots of gear, the award-winning CORE Gaming Backpack is a must. This roomy and rugged backpack features dedicated storage for laptops, gaming consoles, and mobile devices, plus four zippered accessory pockets, media and headphone storage, and an integrated, prewired universal power bank pocket for charging items in the backpack.
The Gamers Go-Bag can be used to help organize larger backpacks simply by slipping it into the case, or it can function as a standalone mobile gaming “go-bag” for just the essentials. It features an IPX4 water-resistant nylon exterior, adjustable padded dividers, and a removable shoulder strap.
The USB Wall Charger Turbo 6 transforms one wall outlet into a 6-port USB charging station. This is the perfect companion for gamers on the go who want to charge multiple devices when they’re near an outlet.
