Ideal laptop for College. Affordable…


Its a real struggle choosing what laptop to buy, especially where the balance between money and efficiency has to be maintained.As this is the case with college fresh men in many countries. As a student how do you know which laptop suits your college needs and pockets as well?


To begin with, irrespective of the course you’ll be studying you’ll need a laptop that can process things fast.Its even mandatory if you’re in a CS(Computer Science) related course. The processor preferably i3 and above will also ensure you are not always a spectator when others play games with their PCs because your PC isn’t compatible with many cool games like fifa, Assasins Creed and many more. Not to forget in ethical hacking you’ll require speed too to crack passwords especially in Dictionary attacks.


Graphics is another aspect to consider especially if you expect to study graphics related units, its also crucial for gamers but this should not worry you much as long as the processor is powerful you can always buy an external graphics card later.

3. Size

As a student you’ll most likely require your laptop almost in every lecture. Then size comes in to perspective.A medium sized laptop will save you back-aches, especially where you walk for large distance or even going up the stair case and this saves space in your bag for books.


Last but not least, you’ll need enough storage for tutorials, projects and of course a lot of movies, music and many apps you’ll fall in love with. 500 GB is not bad and will save you buying an external storage, although you can always buy one when need arises but for an average College student that is enough.


Now the determining factor will be how much you are willing to part with in terms of money.For a student anything above three hundred dollars will be exploitation unless you’re well off financially. So what good laptops can you get for that price and below?

The below laptop satisfies the College requirements and will be ideal for a College student. You can easily get it at amazon for below 300 dollars(price subject to change) ,  just click on it to view its features and also check on their shipping terms too and thank me later.
