Which laptop to choose for a student? The Complete Guide on Laptops to study and not only

    5421

    Laptop for student – a thing without clearly defined boundaries. Someone more appropriate small slow netbook, record lectures and search for information on the Internet, while others need a standard “15-scale”, which will take place firmly on the desktop of the student, and even be able to show themselves in a more or less modern games.

    Therefore, in this report, you will see 5 models of laptops, is the best suitable for each day to take them to the classes. And 5 models heavier, but with a larger screen and performance for those with a heavier tablet to take anything dislikes.

    As usual, I’ll start with a little theory and try the most plausible explanation as to what you can get from the laptop for $500 – $1000 and what you should pay attention in the first place.

    Attention to detail: how to choose a laptop and do not miscalculate

    Obviously, if you want to have just acquired a laptop to please you, not only in the first few minutes after the grand out of the box to the applause of family members, roommates, or the second half, then his choice should be approached carefully.

    Benefit lately about many models you can find reviews on the internet, including ours, which greatly simplifies the task. However, if you want to choose your own, then you need to know at least some of the features, not to go in the wake of the advertising, marketing, and not always honest sellers.

    As I mentioned, you can look for a laptop that will be every day in your backpack or purse, and you can – home laptop is rarely outside the one room, but more productive.

    Of course, there are both compact and efficient, but their price starts from $1700, and quickly comes to $2000 and more – these I will consider in the future in a separate article. However, they all have a lot in common, so when any is almost always possible to use the following generic advice.

    Price

    Let’s start with the truth. Over $500 to take a decent laptop that will not disappoint you no matter what, you can not. Perhaps that is why the plates have succeeded in winning the blanket popularity – $500 You can purchase already one of the top “tablet” with a lovely display. Worthy laptops start to fall mainly with $800, and that not too often.

    For the sum of $1100 is almost guaranteed to be possible to take a laptop that will not compromise between modern technology and the financial capacity of the student or parents. It is obvious that a good laptop for a scholarship does not buy, so we will not consider a more expensive model $1100.

    Screen

    Unfortunately, a good display can only be found in notebooks from $1000, with no means each. This, of course, does not mean that you can not work for a laptop with a lower cost, but you will have to put up with low resolution, low contrast and strong image distortion when you try to look at the display at an angle other than a right angle.

    So you should pay attention to their own feelings, if you got in an electronics store, and assurances from the manufacturer about the use of IPS-matrix, if you buy a laptop through the internet and it has never been seen before.

    Of TN-matrices are also found good copies, but through the Internet you do not see. And vice versa – of IPS displays also meet unimportant, but certainly no worse than TN, at least in our chosen pricing framework. Floor display choose to your taste, but remember that Matt is not annoying glare and reflection of all things, a glossy makes the picture more attractive.

    Sometimes there was a bad backlight, for example, some of the series laptops ASUS N550. To recognize the problem even in the store, adjust brightness level and see if there is not at this stage flicker. If you can not see him at any value of brightness, it is likely, problems with eye fatigue will not occur.

    Body Materials

    Everything is simple: whether you choose a laptop with a body made of aluminum or plastic – drop it is still not worth it. A special protected models are overpriced for the student. The rest is the taste and color: aluminum and looks more expensive, and is more expensive.

    A cheap glossy plastic laptop for $500 in most cases, is disheartening. But depression, in contrast to the lack of money for food, you can survive. Again, if you have the desire and the opportunity to see laptops in the store, it is possible to make their experience as pleasant body material in hand, it easy to stay on it prints etc.

    Keyboard and Touchpad

    Their suitability for long work even for a few minutes with a laptop, you are likely to feel. If the keyboard will sag – no big deal. Annoying, that’s all. The adequacy of the touchpad is worth to estimate, but if anything, you can always buy a mouse.

    However, if you often want to use just the touchpad, you should pay attention to its size and tactile sensations – if it fits you. Some annoying ribbed surface, some overly smooth.

    Processor, RAM

    Since the advent of ultrabooks and related ultra low voltage processors from Intel has developed the following trend: in laptops is set to either one of these economical CPU, moreover it can be by no means easy and compact laptop, or 2-3 times more powerful processor, excellent suitable even for gaming and professional laptops.

    Some means, in general, no. Ultra low voltage CPU easily distinguished by the U letter at the end of the name, for example, Intel Core i5-3337 U. They should not be afraid and get round as family processors Atom.

    On the other hand, the rendering of video and images using ULV-processor runs is not as fast as desired, so if you are studying, for example, on videoeditor, you’d better look at the 4-core CPU.

    Performance comparison of mobile processors in Cinebench 11.5

    In order that it may be a little easier to navigate, we have compiled this little chart that allows you to understand how a CPU performance of the other. Of course, there are not collected all of the processors, but only passed through our lab, however, the current models are many.

    The memory volume also depends on the wallet and needs. In general, the 4 GB – good and the most popular option today. 8 and 16 GB “RAM” will come in handy when handling images and videos and similar resource-intensive process, but also with 4 “gigs” you can still some time to live without harm.

    Graphics Card

    With a budget of up to $1100 count on good settings in modern games do not have. At least get acquainted with these games can often be using a laptop worth $1000. Anything less will detract from the study is much smaller. And, the lighter and more compact than a laptop, the less likely that it is a serious video card installed. Exceptions are rare and expensive.

    Performance comparison of mobile video cards in 3DMark Fire Strike

    Once again, we present the performance graph, but this time for the video card. But here excluded most productive, as for $1100 a laptop with similar not find.

    We also recall that, despite all the promises and slogans, built-in graphics processor can handle only with 4K movies but with the old games at low resolution. Keep this in mind, buying a laptop without a discrete graphics card. Even unpretentious NVIDIA GeForce 720M will own powerful “insertions.” However, the minimum comfortable, in my opinion, the level of FPS games need at least GeForce 750M or 840M.

    Drive

    In this regard, all remained as before. Hard disk is a lot of space (500 GB), but it is often a long and tedious response programs run OS. SSD – very fast operation system and applications, but the volume is very much limited to the high price.

    Sometimes you can find a cheap laptop with a hybrid hard drive, or with a bunch of conventional HDD and a small SSD. They can cost even less than $570, but to respond faster than their $1000 to gather. However, this is likely to be their only advantage.

    Battery interfaces, cooling

    The battery life is obviously more important for those who want to take with your compact laptop every day for a couple to sit with him at recess in the dining room and stuff like that. All in all, good models can work out 4-5 hours.

    In very rare cases, this parameter can reach almost 12 hours, like Toshiba Portege Z30-A-M5S, but, unfortunately, it disappeared from the shelves. To have a rough idea of ​​the hypothetical autonomy laptop, you need to know the battery capacity. For example, 40 W * h is not enough for a 15.6-inch laptop and normal, for a 13.3 “with integrated graphics. All that is higher – the better.

    As for interfaces, do not worry: in almost all cases they will be the same amount and they will still be too close to each other, to take them all at once. Sometimes a manufacturer puts ports on the back edge of the notebook, which is useful only if you rarely use them.

    Also, the problem may be placing most of the ports on the right side. If you are right handed, the wires on the right side of the laptop will not interfere with easy to use the mouse.

    The cooling system – one of the most important things, but check that it works on the shelves is not easy. Chances are, if there are some pitfalls that you learn about them either in advance of our reviews, or from my own experience.

    Problems there may be three: very noisy CS, strong heating of the notebook, or less commonly, overheating the processor or video card. The first two can be verified by running some demanding games for the third also need software that can show the temperature of the chip.

    This may be, for example, HWMonitor. Better yet, use the program to measure FPS and see whether the reduced number of frames per second during continuous play from overheating or remains the same. But it is unlikely the store will allow you to be chopped in Tanks or something else an hour or two in a row.

    Interesting models: lightweight and compact

    This group is represented by five of the most interesting, in my opinion, compact laptops in the price range of $500 – $1100. The main criteria in addition to the cost, weight and thickness of the steel – not more than 2 kg and 23 mm, respectively. Screen size – 13,3-14 inches.

    This laptop is easy to carry, it does not draw it out a hand, will not ballast daily trips on public transport. Also, importantly, all 5 laptops have SSD-cache or just SSD, which will save your nerves and you will never burst patience, especially during the booting OS and browser.

    The other characteristics are already dependent on the price – the larger it is, the better screen, more powerful processor, and so on.

    Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch

    This is very low-budget companion visited our editorial office and left a good impression. Of course, in many ways, he is of the compromises inherent in laptops starting price category, but the presence of a small support SSD (only 8 GB) made the Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch very nimble by the standards of its class.

    Besides, having a 14-inch screen, the laptop weighs only 1.75 kg. But its thickness is just too big – 23 mm. However, in my experience – carry it with you every day in your backpack easily and comfortably.

    The keyboard is great for regular work with the text clickpad is also not satisfactory. The capacity of the main drive is suitable for daily needs – 500 GB.

    Processor “power” it is not very much smaller than today’s Ultrabooks, and digital video in modification $515 is not at all. Supplements are not very cheerful picture just one USB 3.0 (and two USB 2.0), and is a very simple matrix with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels, low contrast and low angles. However, the ratio of price / performance – Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch is very good help to the student.

    Lenovo IdeaPad U330p

    Lenovo IdeaPad U330p, like many laptops Lenovo, has a large number of modifications. Over $700 it will be equipped with a slightly more powerful than the previous laptop, the processor – Intel Core i3-4010U.

    The display has a lower diagonal 13.3 inches, but also less weight and thickness – 1,53 kg and 18 mm, respectively. So wear Lenovo IdeaPad U330p with an even more convenient. It also has a third more capacious battery, allowing you to stretch out longer without the socket, which is not covered with all audiences of all universities.

    The matrix does not possess the quality, but the overall appearance of the mark – cheap stuff this laptop will not name. So if you have a lot of money, and the games you’re really not inclined, or buy a laptop in the appendage to the desktop PC, the Lenovo IdeaPad U330p – a very good option.

    Price on Amazon: EUR 499 ($668) [easyazon_cta add_to_cart=”default” align=”none” asin=”B00HRPXLXY” cloaking=”default” height=”28″ key=”small-orange” localization=”default” locale=”DE” nofollow=”default” new_window=”default” tag=”gadgethelpde-21″ width=”120″]

    ASUS VivoBook U38N

    With more than $1000 start “tasty” laptops ASUS VivoBook U38N – one of them. About this laptop only with the older processor, we wrote last summer. Since then, little has changed, but ASUS VivoBook U38N still offers interesting characteristics. For example, it has an excellent display. It is based on the basis of IPS-matrix, and the resolution is 1920×1080 pixels.

    Another strong point is the drive, as this SSD – that is, work for this laptop will not be clouded by the inclusion of a long and sluggish response programs. However, its volume is only 128 GB, so that may have to stock up on an external hard drive. Fortunately, for it has three ports USB 3.0. Among the disadvantages – lack of a discrete graphics card, which is forgivable, given the other characteristics and low price.

    Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 13

    What can please the student the second generation of the famous transformer Lenovo Yoga? In fact, the modification of $1100 is not very prominent, but in his own good. Firstly, this laptop allows you to deploy and get the lid of the laptop, even heavy but powerful tablet on Windows 8.

    Secondly, “Yoga” has a great IPS-display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, which will appeal to many because of the quality and color high contrast. We should not forget about the case with soft-touch coating and thickness equal to only 17.3 mm.

    This version has a 500 GB HDD and SSD caching, its capacity is 16 GB, which is enough to laptop worked smartly and responsive, despite the simple CPU – Intel Core i3-4010U. Of the shortcomings – just two USB-ports, with only one version 3.0, and the output images to an external monitor is hampered by the fact that Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 13 is not a full-sized HDMI, and its micro-version that requires an adapter.

    ASUS Transformer Book T300LA visited our editorial office in May this year. Its distinguishing feature is the detachable keyboard. You can work for Book T300LA, as usual for a laptop, and a couple or in a cafe to take only a 13.3-inch “screen” – because it is hidden everything inside the laptop, including the battery. Thus, you will lose not only the physical keys, but 800 grams of weight.

    Interesting models: large and productive

    HP Pavilion 15-n273sr

    This laptop from HP in the first place boasts of its affordable price – only $600. 15.6-inch diagonal display has more to do to work for HP Pavilion 15-n273sr home, but the mass of 2.3 kg allows without difficulty to take your laptop with you.

    Because of the low price laptop is equipped with quite modest. For example, the quality of CPU was chosen as one of the models of family i3, and a display resolution of 1366×768 pixels that 15.6 Diagonal rather dull.

    Also this laptop has no SSD, only on a hard disk of 500 GB. But there is a discrete graphics card AMD Radeon HD 8670M with two gigabytes of DDR3. In Crysis 3 on the highest setting, you certainly will not play, but at the low turn out to look at the most modern games.

    MSI GP60 (2PE-050X)

    MSI GP60 (2PE-050X) can not be called a gaming laptop, but compared to all the ones that were discussed earlier in this review, this model is simply the king and god of games, while its cost is only $850. If you ask for and the search, you can find on the market and even more cheap laptops with graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 840 – from ASUS, for example.

    But MSI GP60 (2PE-050X) has a more powerful processor, video card that will unleash your full potential.

    MSI GP60 (2PE-050X)

    At the same time, however, the differences between MSI GP60 (2PE-050X) from low-cost laptops to an end. Its 15.6-inch screen supports a resolution of up to 1366×768 pixels, RAM of 4 GB (normally for an inexpensive new laptop, and for the game is not solid), drive – a regular hard drive to 500 GB, SSD is not. Yet MSI GP60 has an excellent price / performance ratio.

    Lenovo IdeaPad Z510

    Next laptop, despite the slightly higher price, can not boast such a powerful graphics: from Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 is a little easier – NVIDIA GeForce 740M. However, this laptop has a hard drive terabyte, with a hybrid – with 8GB SSD. That is, you get plenty of space for your files, and it’s not brakes as hard as on a laptop with a conventional hard drive.

    In general, Z510 – a good budget desktop replacement. Let him not playing to the extent that it would be desirable for most students, but for learning suitable fine and not be obsolete in a year, besides you can always watch a movie on a good display.

    Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

    Laptop from Lenovo is famous for the fact that instead of an optical drive, you can put it in an additional drive or even a second discrete graphics card. By default, the same goes one NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M and it is generally quite good for games, even though the screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels of the game will show a low FPS, if you specify more than medium settings.

    However, the laptop is perfectly balanced and has an attractive appearance and aggressive red key illumination.

    More of the positive qualities can be noted capacious hard drive terabyte SSD-cache with 8 Gbytes. Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p also boasts quite a productive dual-core Intel Core i5-4200M.

    However, it consumes energy exactly like his fellow quad i7-4702MQ, and the performance is much inferior. In general, for my money Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p is a good solution, especially if you add the other 4 GB of RAM.

    Conclusion

    Laptops as a tool for creating and editing content for a long time will be needed, because they combine great performance and a full keyboard with mobility, the ability to take the device anywhere, anytime.

    Neither tablet or desktop will not be able to fully replace the laptop, especially for students – one of the most active groups.

    I hope the above mentioned instructions for choosing such a device will allow you to make the right choice among the thousands of models.

    Of course, this article can not cover every individual case, but it is possible to understand the general direction.

    And it is, unfortunately, is that a simple laptop can take from $500, a decent $1000 and $1100 other than, of course, for the same money you can take at least a couple of tablets, and try to make them presentation drawings, mounted audio and video, and play sad graphically against the game.

    And if you need just that – in the foreseeable future are already scheduled instructions to the optimal choice of the tablet.
