It’s more or less impossible to think of going to school these days without having access to some type of computer. Aside from the fact that we need computers and/or devices which can connect to the internet (which is in and of itself, an immense “knowledge portal”), chances are, a student will at the very least want something like a laptop for basic word processing, etc. At any rate, here are some laptops which would be perfect for a student of any age or grade…
When it comes to purchasing a laptop there are basically two factors which you need to consider:
What you’re going to use it for (the extent of your activities)
What specific features you’ll need
For the average person / student, the ability to check email, do word processing and perhaps even access other types of media content through a browser is really all that is generally required. Arguably, the absolute best and perhaps simplest solution is to buy a Samsung Chromebook. Sporting a price tag under $300(USD) and running on what amounts to a chrome browser type of OS, the chromebook is a complete solution for students. Given that there is pretty much a free app / online service for nearly everything you can think of these days, having a portal which is more or less just a secure platform for running a browser is quite refreshing. Moreover, if a person is interested in devoting a specific laptop to schoolwork / studies, the chromebook is again perhaps the most cost-effective and thorough machine which is pretty much perfect for the job.
If you’re looking for more of a fully-featured laptop that won’t break the bank, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Touch is worth taking a look at. You can pick up an IdeaPad 2500 Touch these days for under $600(USD), but despite the paltry price, it’s sturdy, agile and powerful enough to do most anything. Sure, it might not be able to handle a large number of processor hogging activities like a machine designed for higher performance, but this laptop will still be able to run games, visual editing software, as well as other critical apps / programs (for entertainment, business or academic purposes). Packed inside you have a Core i7 processor as well as Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics, a strong and well-balanced combination.
Last but certainly not least there’s the HP Envy x2, which is a sort of hybrid laptop / tablet, making it an extremely versatile device all around. Likewise, you can pick up an HP Envy x2 for under $700(USD), an excellent value. In short, the computer itself is powerful enough for most applications / activities, but the really cool thing about it is its ability to shift between being a traditional laptop and a tablet computer. In other words, you can remove the screen element from that of the keyboard section and use it in the same manner as you would a conventional tablet. Naturally, being able to attach this portion to the base which contains the keyboard is not only very handy when you have a writing assignment to complete; it also provides more a more extensive battery life. You see, the base contains a 2nd battery…
