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.
