Hi,everyone:-)

Another change is that the newest tech devices are not aimed at just older students anymore. While laptops are still most useful for those going off to college, Mr. Grunwald says that as prices drop on a wide variety of products once meant for an older crowd, younger students start using them as well. “Kids are aging up,” he said.

What does "age up" mean here?
Aging [intellectually] more quickly, especially in the use of technology. I've never heard the term before, but I think I understood it immediately. A similar term might be "dumbing down", which is used in some educational circles, meaning "watering down" of certain courses because students aren't really prepared for the content.
