A laptop is an essential part of a student’s gear, but with so many models out there it can be a challenge to figure out which is the best laptop for you. These tips should help.
What are you going to use the laptop for? If it’s just for writing reports, taking notes in class, browsing the web, and watching YouTube videos, you can opt for basic or mid-level specs. On the other hand, power-intensive activities, like video editing and gaming, require more horsepower.
Are you going to be taking your laptop to all your classes, labs, and study sessions? In that case, the best laptop would be one that is lightweight and portable. If your laptop is going to spend most of its time on your desk, you can browse larger models with bigger screens.
Windows laptops are powerful and have the widest range of available applications. MacBooks are known for their sophisticated, stylish design and ease of use. Chromebooks are extremely affordable and portable, and work their best when connected online.
Laptops between 11” and 12” are extremely portable, but the small screen can make it difficult to work on larger projects. 13” laptops are a good balance between portability and productivity. Mid-size laptops (14-16”) provide more functionality but aren’t so easy to carry around. Desktop replacements (17” or larger) feature larger displays and are meant to stay mostly on your desk.
Tablets are totally portable and can easily handle single tasks like web browsing, checking email, and taking notes (especially if you’ve got a separate keyboard). If your needs are modest a tablet might serve you just fine. However, laptops are better at multitasking and handling high-power applications like graphic design, and have more storage space for documents, music, and videos.
A mouse is an essential add-on that’ll make all of your laptop activities easier and smoother. A laptop sleeve will help protect your computer from scratches and impacts, and a set of speakers or headphones is essential for enjoying music while you’re studying.
