CNET's Kara Tsuboi visits the University of California, Berkeley, to find out what gadgets students are craving at the start of their school year. CNET Reviews editors Bonnie Cha and Donald Bell also weigh in on their top cell phone, MP3, and laptop picks.

[ Background Music ] >> Well who like an iPod touch or an iPhone? >> I want something that's gonna be like a smartphone so I can put my calendar and schedule on it. >> Apple things, you know those are the fads. >> Not surprising the iPhone is the most wanted gadget at least amongst the students we talk to but that's not necessarily what CNET editors would choose. >> I would actually recommend the Palm Centro just because it offers the organization features, voice features and email for really affordable price. >> When it comes to MP3 players, CNET editors do choose Apple's iPod Touch. >> The built in WiFi really lets you take advantage of a whole lot of applications for wired campuses. >> New laptops are also in hot demand. CNET editors recommend Apple's Mac Book. >> The Leopard operating system that comes built into it really offers the best combination of built-in software and lots of cool features that are fun to play with, it doesn't feel like work. >> Well it maybe tempting to buy your gadgets now before classes begin, many manufacturers will be dropping prices after classes start.
