The cost of buying kids computers, power supplies and other electronics has skyrocketed over the last few years, as kids have increasingly grown up and bought more and more electronics.
The new study, published Monday by the non-profit Consumers Union, shows that a new generation of kids’ computers is now priced at $199, with a power supply costing $99.
Parents who purchase these new computers can expect to pay $2,400 more over the course of their child’s college education than they would have if they bought a similar computer for the same price.
