You have questions, we have answers!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates recently, it has been really busy at the TechHub! Which is great because all the incoming freshmen need to get their tech questions answered somewhere, and where better to go for those answers than the TechHub? So I am going to take some of these questions and answer them right here (and make this a continuing segment on the TechTalk blog).

Q. What computer would you recommend for an incoming freshman?

A. If you live off campus, it doesn’t matter which you get…either a desktop or a laptop will work well for you. But if you wind up living in the dorms, then we would recommend purchasing a laptop because space is at a real premium in the dorm rooms. Other than that, the best place to start looking would be our website at Just click on the banner link toward the bottom of the page that says “Campus Recommended Computers” to see a list of machines that we recommend.

Q. Will the microphone on the Apple Headphones with Remote and Mic work on the PSP (Playstation Portable)?

A. The short answer is no, they will not. The reason for this is because the input technology on those earbuds was designed specifically to be used with an Apple product. So my suggestion would be to purchase an official Sony PSP headset. (Which you could buy from the UC Davis Bookstore in the School and Office section).

Q. What is the TechHub return policy?

A. Our official return policy can be found at
