A laptop is probably as important for university students as books these days. They are used for everything, from preparing reports and researching to social networking and entertainment. The biggest consideration for a student buying a laptop should be its holding value – not only should the laptop last long – it should also not get out of date too fast. Here are some options to help university and college students choose a laptop.
The best laptops for new university students – Apple and more
Apple MacBook Air (949 $): This is probably one of the best ultrabooks available right now. Fashionable and very good performance wise as well, it is now possible to get the 2012 MacBook Air at cheaper prices because of the release of the Intel Haswell micro processor – which is already in the latest MacBook Air.
Lenovo G580 (349 $): A much more affordable laptop at only 350$ this is one of the best value for money laptops available. Smooth and reasonably fast to operate the G580 manages to look very sleek and not cheap at all.
Dell Inspiron 15z (I15Z-4801SLV) (799 $): This Dell made machine is on the heavier end of the ultrabook section, but it is a great machine. It runs fast and has a great touch screen interface as well.
