ARRIS SURFboard mAX 6E Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi System

Students today are more connected than ever, and they depend on the internet for everything from researching homework assignments to video gaming and of course, video chatting with friends.

To make all that happen smoothly, you need a router with the latest cutting-edge technology like the Arris SURFboard mAX 6E. It’s a mesh Wi-Fi system that takes advantage of the new 6 GHz band, giving it blazing fast speeds and, because there are two mesh routers, greater range throughout your house – that means no more dead spots.

Plus, the SURFboard mAX 6E supports up to 150 devices, far exceeding and future-proofing the needs of even the techiest multi-device household.

Aside from great connectivity, students need a laptop that can do it all like the Lenovo Yoga 7i.
