Engadget's Back to School "Guide" for Digital Cameras 2012

"Your Facebook friends and future employers deserve an accurate account of those glory days, and you'll need a proper snapper to get the job done. College is as good a time as any to learn responsibility, but don't expect to walk out of the experience with all your gear unscathed."

What do you get when gadget editors pick cameras for students? You get US$3000 SLRs in the equation. I'm not sure what kind of college these people went to, but I am quite sure most students aren't going to be able to splurge that kind of money, especially in these times. In fact, there are a lot of high-end picks here, when there are plenty of cheaper but good cameras out in the market. Particularly for DSLRs - there're competent cameras like the Canon Rebel T4i/EOS 650D or the higher-specified Nikon D7000 that will take great pictures without breaking the bank. What are your own personal recommendations?

Building PCs for Fun and, uh, Fun!

"Before you start picking parts, a builder should clearly understand the machine's intended function. General purpose systems that deal with tasks like 2D games, Internet browsing, and document creation will obviously have modest hardware requirements. In contrast, high-end 3D gaming systems require better graphics, better cooling, and a larger power supply."

The the fundamentals of how to put a PC together has not really changed for decades, some aspects, like standards and specifications do change. I would venture to say that in general, cobbling together a computer is much easier today than it has ever been. Over the years, more and more functions have been integrated into the motherboard, meaning there are fewer parts you have to deal with in a standard configuration. Putting together a computer is a useful and informative exercise. While lots of people are content to treat PCs as magical boxes that give us access to Farmville, or wait until the worst moment to crash, knowing what goes into a computer and how it works is a great way to stretch one's mind. Does everyone have their "PC Builder" badge yet?
