The digital generation is heading off to school again -- and as we do every year, we've picked out some gadgets and apps that'll help with studying, relaxing and just plain being a student.

We've made our selections with a budget in mind: Our priciest item lists for $130, while the lowest-priced accessory comes two for $10. Check the usual online suppliers, though, because most are available at a discount.

This is our sixth year of scouting out student-friendly tech. If you're still looking for ideas, be sure to review our previous roundups, from 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. A few of the products may no longer be available, but most of them should still be around.
