laptops among student

Why Every Student Needs a Laptop?

Laptops are simply great as they are portable devices that you can take with you almost anywhere. Whether you need a laptop at college, work or while you are away on holiday, your laptop keeps you connected to all of your contacts, favorite websites and emails. But not only that. Many teachers stated students should be given a laptop as it is easier to write stories, do tests and look up information. Generally speaking, using a laptop in school or university results in increasing technology literacy, increasing engagement of students, lower rates of absenteeism, improved student achievements and decreased disciplinary problems.

Students in today’s modern world definitely need to learn from a very early age how to operate computer and laptop devices and the abundance of programs available. As students will certainly need technology knowledge after the graduation, individuals who are knowledgeable within the realm of computer technology have better chances for finding the right job. Rather than just using modern technology for surfing the internet and playing video games, using a laptop students will learn important software programs at the same time.

Many students are striving for interactive and engaging lessons and lectures to be able to learn efficiently and properly. Certainly, students are distracted due to the technology all around them. Many students may not perform as well as they could in a standard classroom where books and traditional techniques are used solely without incorporating any modern tech devices.

Students are usually having a hard time staying organized, up-to-date and remembering to bring all of their assignments to class. With the use of laptops, the entire library of information they need can be found on a laptop as they take it with them from home to school and back again.

Many schools already recognized this and recommend all students who have the financial ability to buy a laptop do so. In order to prepare students for work in the technology-driven world, students will definitely benefit from operating and maintaining personal computer.

Advantages of the new SSD technology

The solid-state drive (SSD) is a new technology, with a significantly increased reading speed. The new Samsung comes with SSD device (128GB or 256GB), which loads 60% faster than the regular HDD.

Moreover, SSD reduces energy consumption with a remarkable 86% and thus significantly reduces the cost of operation and maintenance. Therefore, it is a leader in green technologies of storage devices.

Good and Stable Laptop For College

I was recently asked for advice from a friend to help him choose his next laptop for college. He is going to study Marketing, and what he needs is a cheap and reliable solution. Finding a good laptop for him was not a big deal. After browsing the Internet, I stumbled upon this website – Laptop For College, where I found plenty of laptops to choose from.

So he needs a Windows machine, with at least 4GB of RAM, a dedicated graphics card (because he is also playing games from time to time), a dual-core processor, and of course – a good and stable battery life. The whole configuration is not bad, but as he is looking for cheap solution, I advice him to search for a regular HDD, instead of SSD.

A good laptop for college may be the Dell Inspiron 15, which comes with 1.8GHz Core i5 (dual-core) processor, a 15.6 inch display, 4GB of RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 4000. You can get it at price around $450. It also comes with Windows 8, which may save you a lot of money on software. However, this model doesn’t include an external graphics card, which may cause you some problems.

Another good laptop for university is the Asus N56DP-DH11. Again – a 15.6 inch screen, FULL HD resolution, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, and an external, AMD Radeon HD 7730M video card. It comes with 2.3 GHz A-Series Quad-Core processor. Just like the Dell model, it comes with installed Windows 8. Usually, on Amazon, you can find deals from around $830 for this model.

But before buying a laptop, make sure to see all the student deals on laptops that the market offers.

I hope this was helpful. See you soon with another wise post for laptop studies.

A perfect laptop for everyone?

Today I was wondering, is there a perfect laptop for everyone, and if so, who is going to be the manufacturer of that awesome machine.

The perfect screen size?

First of all, if there is a perfect laptop, it should match a medium size, perfectly 14″, so it is not that big, and at the same time portable. However, some people may find 14″ as a pretty small screen.

I have to say that I have experienced the same problem back in 2011, when I went to college. I found my 15.6″ Sony Vaio as extremely huge device, so I bought my 13.3″ Macbook.

Despite the high resolution on the Macbook, I found it hard to design websites on such a small screen. But I found that even on 15.6″ it was hard to design, so 13.3″ was just the perfect display size for all my activities, except watching movies and designing on Photoshop. Here comes the power of external monitors. So I bought a 23″ large screen, which solved all of my problems.

So cloud 13.3″-14″ be the perfect screen size?

Operating system and software

The most argued question ever. Some people prefer using Windows, some others Mac OS X, or even Linux based system, and all that for a reason.

For example, as I mentioned earlier, I am a professional web designer. My job requires a stable OS, designed to suit my needs, which are – Photoshop. Simply, I can go with both Windows and Mac OS X.

I’d say – don’t bother the software compatibilities of Mac OS X – there is always an alternative. In some cases, alternatives are even greater.

Battery health, hardware importance

Battery health is of big importance as we speak about portable decides. Most manufacturers claim to have their devices running up to 10 hours on a single charge. Is this true? Noes.

I’ve had the chance to test many laptops over the past. From personal experience, I can say that once you install 3rd party software, it can instantly change the hardware performance of your device, and therefore reduce battery power.

Another factor that may concern the battery life is the hardware itself. More RAM will cost you more power, and therefore batteries will quickly went off. That’s why I love MacBooks – each little bit of hardware is placed inside a purpose, it is tested, and is consistent with the other hardware parts.


To conclude, I’d say that the 13.3″ Macbook may not be the perfect laptop for everyone, but it is at least a perfect laptop.
