My son will be going into grade 6, Middle School. After attending the orientation at the school, one things is clear, that I will have to buy him some sort of device for school. (believe me, I am not thrilled with this BYOD, but he felt very much left our in grade 5 when majority of the students had some sort of device with them and he didn't) Should I go with a laptop/notebook or something smaller? I am quite confused. I don't want to get something expensive as, it might break or he might lose it. But I also want to make sure he can get his work done. On one side I am thinking to get him a notebook where he can do his assignments. but then I think it might be too big for him to lug around so maybe should get him a tablet. but then that won't have Microsoft Office on it. Any suggestions, please and thank you
