The Best Laptops For College Students

The Best Laptops For College Students

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a student who is going off to college for the first time this year, you may be wondering “what are the best laptops for college students?” In this article, you can see a few of our top recommendations.


Microsoft Surface Pro

Looking for a unique, Windows-based alternative to the MacBook Air? The Microsoft Surface Pro is cheaper than the MacBook Air, and its removable keyboard lets you use it as both a tablet and computer.

Not interested in a tablet? The Microsoft Surface Book has the same sleek design as the Surface, but in a more traditional, laptop form-factor.



Looking for a more budget-conscious pick? Why not consider a Chromebook? Chromebooks use Chrome OS by Google, not Windows. This operating system is designed to be lightning-fast, and is ideal for the tasks that most college students do every day.

Not only that, but Chromebooks are usually much cheaper than both Mac and Windows laptops, so you can get a great deal. Laptops like the Lenovo Chromebook C330, ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 and Lenovo Yoga C630 Chromebook are all great options.


MacBook Air

The MacBook Air has been a staple of college campuses all across the US since it was first introduced in early 2008. With its incredibly small and slim form-factor, fast Solid State Drive (SSD) and plenty of computing power for everyday tasks like word processing, checking email and more, college students are sure to love this powerful, stylish machine.

The biggest drawback? Yeah, it’s expensive. You can find a similarly-priced Windows laptop for a much lower price. Still, the MacBook Air has macOS, which makes computing quick and easy, and is well worth the price of entry if you can afford it.
