What is the best student laptop?

A question we often get and which you might also struggle with is: What is the best student laptop? This is a very difficult question! Because there are several possible answers to this question. It all depends on what you want to do with your laptop. What are you going to use it for? That is always the first question you have to ask yourself. Do you work for your study with specific programs or do you game a lot? Then, of course, you need a different laptop than if you only check your e-mail, surf the net, watch a movie or do some word processing. It' therefore very important that you ask yourself what you are going to use your new student laptop for in order to make the right choice.


A cheap laptop can be expensive!

Yes, a cheap laptop can become expensive. That's why you have to be careful when buying a new laptop. In many cases, you can still save money by making smart choices. We have already explained that you should carefully consider what you are going to use your laptop for. This can already ensure that you will end up in a cheaper price range. In addition, it's not always necessary to choose the very latest model. A new or refurbished laptop that came out a year ago is often more than fine and in many cases a lot cheaper.


Our student laptop tips:

Studentdiscount.co.uk is all about helping students, so we'd like to share some basic tips when buying a new laptop:

  • Choose a laptop that is not too big if you carry it around a lot. Your laptop should fit easily into your bag. The recommended size: 11.6 to 15.6 inches. Good to work with and still very handy.
  • Choose a laptop that is not too heavy. Under two kilos, you will find a huge range, even the larger models. If you use your laptop mostly at home, you don't have to take this into consideration.
  • Make sure you have a long-lasting battery. Fortunately, batteries are getting better all the time. With normal use, it's nice if the battery lasts at least 8 hours. This will give you a lot of freedom and avoid moments of disappointment when there is no power nearby.
  • Think about the future. Is a basic laptop enough for you? Maybe that will change in the near future. If you can, invest in a laptop that will last for years. It's just annoying if within a year it turns out your laptop is getting slower and slower. Take this into consideration.
