What Are The Best Laptops For Students In 2022?

Zoe Kramer November 17, 2022

Choosing a laptop is a huge decision. It’s something that you use in all facets of life from uni work to jobs to down time. Plus, they’re not cheap – it might even be the biggest purchase you’ve ever made. As a result, you want to make sure that you’re weighing in all of the different factors when it comes to finding the laptop that’s right for you. But don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed. To help you out, here are some of the best laptops for students, and what they do best.

Apple MacBook Air

If you prefer the Mac operating system, the MacBook Air is a great option for students. It’s lightweight and has excellent battery life thanks to its M2 processor. The downside is that it’s at a pretty high price point, and may not be affordable for everyone on a student budget.

Acer Chromebook Spin 714

For the Chrome OS, the Spin 714 is an ideal 2 in 1 laptop for students. It’s well built and sturdy, so you won’t have to worry about breaking it while you carry it from lecture to lecture. It has a fast processor and good quality speakers. You can buy a stylus for it which will allow you to draw and make handwritten notes. However, its speakers and battery life are not the best.

Dell XPS 13

If you prefer the Windows operating system, the Dell XPS 13 might be the right choice for you. It has 16 GB of RAM, which is a pretty significant amount of power. The screen has great resolution and colour grading. It has a top quality keyboard that’s ideal for essay writing. While it’s a pricey laptop, you can expect it to last quite a while.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14

If you want a laptop that’s good for gaming, look no further. The Zephyrus has top-tier graphics and a whopping 32GB of RAM, making it a real workhorse. It comes with 1 TB of storage, so you won’t have to worry about uninstalling something every time you want to download new software.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2

This laptop is budget-friendly, portable, and has a good display. It has over 9 hours of battery life, so you won’t have to worry about it dying halfway through a lecture. It can do pretty much everything you need it to as a student without a hitch. For an affordable Windows machine, this one is hard to beat.
