It’s that time of year again, back to school! When I was younger, I loved shopping for notebooks, pens, highlighters, and all of the organizational goodies! When it came to the best technology, I wasn’t as excited. How do I know what I need? How can I make sure I’m buying the right thing without wasting money on things I don’t need? Now I’m happy I can say — don’t worry about it! I am here to save the day with the top five best laptops for students going back to school this fall!
Best Overall: Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 $580.00 on Amazon Prime This Ultrabook manages to be a lot of performance, at not a lot of cost, which is really what we all want. Aspire E 15 has a 7th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, and a Nvidia 940MX graphics card that should be able to roll with anything you can throw at it — whether it’s for school or just for fun. From graphics design software to any accounting software, and everything in between, this laptop has got you covered.
Best 2-in-1: Samsung Notebook 7 Spin $590.00 on Amazon Prime Can’t decide between a laptop or a tablet? Then this one is for you. The Notebook 7 has a 365-degree hinge, a strong processor, and 1TB of memory to make sure you’re always able to do your best. The fact that this is a 2-in-1 with touchscreen means it can be used like a traditional laptop or as a tablet, whatever you need in the moment. There are many options as far as the screen size and the RAM to customize this just for you.
Best for Portability: ASUS ZenBook 3 $1,092.00 on Amazon Prime College, often times, requires students to be able to work in different places (dorm, classroom, library, etc), and adaptability is key. When taking a laptop from class to class, you want something that doesn’t feel like you’re carrying a brick, but is strong enough to do whatever you need to in each class. This ZenBook delivers on light weight portability while packing heavy weight performance. Between the 7th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, 256 GB SSD, a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller and a copper-alloy heat pipe to make sure your system stays cool while you’re burning the midnight oil (or any other time), you really can’t go wrong.
Best for Creatives: Microsoft Surface Book $1,499.00 on Amazon Prime
This Microsoft Surface is here to be anything you want from an Apple device for a creative major, and then some! With the 13.5-inch, 3:2-aspect-ratio PixelSense screen has some of the best resolution (3,000 x 2,000) and superb brightness that makes everything you create come to life right before your very eyes. Add to that the power of either a 6th Generation Intel Core i5 or i7, and between 8-16 GB of RAM, you can make this laptop into exactly what you want it to be.
Best on a Budget: HP Notebook 15 $253.00 on Amazon Prime If you’re living the typical college student life, every dollar counts. Here’s the hero of the day for your budget! With this AMD A6-7310 Quad-Core processor APU, 4GB of memory, and 500GB hard drive, this gives you everything you need without the hefty price tag, saving you money for Ramen Noodles, Easy Mac, and those SUPER expensive textbooks!
