HP PAVILION 14

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Strong all-round specs+Solid build quality that will last+Big internal storage space

 

 

We think that for the vast majority of students the best student laptop available today is the HP Pavilion 14. Combining strong all-around specs, which include the 8th generation Intel Core i5-8250U CPU, Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, along with a simple yet stylish design and crisp screen, for the money you can’t do better running Windows 10.

The system’s build quality is also good, and you get dedicated HDMI, USB Type-C, and networking ports, too, meaning that hooking the machine up in the dorm or in class is easy. Battery life sits at up to 11 hours, and the machines come pre-installed with a fresh copy of Windows 10 Home.

Cheaper and more expensive student laptops are available in this list, as well as makes from Apple that run macOS, however, for an affordable sweet spot then look no further than the HP Pavilion 14.

DELL XPS 13 (2020)

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Powerhouse performance +Will last way beyond university

 

 

 

The Dell XPS 13 series has consistently wowed us here at T3, and the 2020 version of the laptop continues that trend – it’s powerful, supremely well built, and compact, so just about everything you could possibly want in your search for the best student laptop around during back to school season.

With the latest 10th-gen Intel processors installed and up to 16GB of RAM installed, this is a portable computer that’s going to be able to handle everything that you want to throw at it. From late-night Netflix to early-morning essay writing, you’ll find the Dell XPS 13 for 2020 a capable and competent laptop.

It’s that 13.4-inch display with the super-thin bezels that really makes the XPS 13 stand out though: if you want to, you can go all the way up to a 4K resolution, but the 1,920 x 1,080 resolution models still look fantastic (4K doesn’t make a huge amount of difference on a laptop display this size).


If you’re fine using Chrome OS, then the Acer Chromebook 15 is a great, budget-friendly student laptop choice.

ACER CHROMEBOOK 15

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Quality screen + Long-lasting battery + Very attractive price point

 

 

The Chromebook 15 is a ridiculously cheap student laptop that’s also very capable. The hardware is in line with that price, with lower specs across the board – but as the machine runs Chrome OS, it doesn’t matter too much, with the laptop still delivering a fast and responsive user experience.

And that 15.6-inch screen is an absolute delight, by the way. Again, its speakers are poor, with flat treble and weak bass – but at this price, you can afford an iPod as well. One of the best student laptops going in 2020 for those shopping on a budget, and who don’t need a host of extra bells and whistles.

APPLE MACBOOK AIR (2020)

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Thin and light+Clean, crisp display+macOS always improving

 

 

Apple has made some interesting tweaks to the MacBook Air in recent years, pulling it back from near-obsolescence to make it just about the best Mac laptop option for students. It’s thin, it’s light, and it has just about enough power to handle all of the usual studenty tasks that you’re going to need it for.

The 2020 edition of the MacBook Air features the latest 10th-gen Intel processors, and you can kit it out with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 2TB of internal storage if you need to know – impressive specs by any standards.

Perhaps most importantly, the entry-level price is now below the £1,000/$1,000 mark, making it the cheapest MacBook that Apple has on offer at the moment. With macOS Big Sur on the way later in the year, the MacBook is going to get even more appealing as a device, as long as you can afford it.

MICROSOFT SURFACE GO 2

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Attractive low price + Great hardware package + Compact and lightweight

 

 

Microsoft’s forays into the 2-in-1 market have been a huge success, revitalizing the company’s image as a serious hardware maker right when it needed it. For people who want to get in on this without paying handsomely – so students, in other words – Microsoft has you covered with the second Surface Go.

It builds on what made the original Surface Go so good, adding a more premium-feeling design and a small specs bump to make sure you can get through all of the computing tasks that you need to get through. It also squeezes in a bigger-sized screen into a form factor the same size as the original Surface Go, but cutting down on the bezels.

You can eke out around five hours of use between charges with the Surface Go, and given its size and power, it’s perfect for jumping between the library and the lecture hall. In your calculations about whether or not to buy this, make sure that you factor in the extra cost of the Type Cover keyboard as well, which you’re going to need to make full use of this as a laptop as well as a tablet.

That’s what Huawei is offering with the robust MateBook X Pro, and it’s going to have you covered whatever your subject.

With all these specs and more, the Huawei MateBook X Pro has proved itself the new gold standard, and one of the very best 2020 laptops for students available.

If you like the HP brand but want to spend a little bit more than the Pavillion costs (see above), the HP Envy x360 might be for you. It manages to marry some decent specs with some very decent looks at a price that’s not quite as exorbitant as you might think, looking at it.

LENOVO YOGA SLIM 7

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Very thin and portable+14-inch minimal bezel display+Long-lasting 17.5-hour battery

 

 

 

Versatility is important for the students and one of the best systems on the market today for that is the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7. This is because it marries a stylish and super thin design that weighs only 1.33kg, therefore making it super portable, with a really strong hardware spec that is anything but underpowered.

The Slim 7’s AMD Ryzen 5 processor, for example, delivers all the power you need for photo and video editing, and its spacious and fast SSD makes storing tons of files, pictures, videos, music files, movies, and games easy.

This laptop’s FHD 14-inch screen comes with very small bezels, too, which make it look far bigger than it actually is, which is ideal for when streaming videos from services like Netflix and Disney+, as well as holding video meetings and attending virtual seminars, with the Slim 7’s integrated webcam with privacy shutter ensuring you’re seeing only when you want to be.

One of the other major reasons why this system is so versatile is its battery, which delivers 17.5 hours of runtime on a single charge. That means that no matter if you are out all day studying in a coffee shop, library, or communal workspace, you won’t be left running for a power socket.

Throw in some sweet extras like Dolby Atmos audio, rapid charge battery tech, and a full-fat version of Windows 10 Home, and you’ve got yourself a winner – and especially so at its firmly mid-range price point.

Overall, one of the best student laptops on the market.


The best student laptop running Windows 10 for tech enthusiasts right now is the Dell XPS 15.

DELL XPS 15

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Dazzling 4K display+Impeccable build quality+Premium-grade hardware

 

Like its smaller sibling, the awesome XPS 13, Dell’s XPS 15 sports an almost bezel-less InfinityEdge display, but is better for long hours of work because of the larger screen. It brings the dual benefit of making whatever you’re doing on its gorgeous 15-inch 4K screen come to life while also lending it the dimensions of a 14-inch laptop.

It’s bag-friendly to boot and comes packing the goods in terms of specs, including an Nvidia GTX 960M mobile graphics card that’s beefy enough to handle just about any game so long as you stick to 1080p.

The XPS 15’s battery life is its main weakness, so don’t expect its runtimes to stretch into the double figures without taking a booster pack along for the ride. Even with that against it, it’s still one of the best student laptops out there.

MACBOOK PRO 13-INCH

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Impressively thin design+Incredible performance+Gorgeous Retina display

 

 

If you need sleekness and power, and you’re prepared to pay for it – but at the same time you still want something that isn’t too difficult to carry around or stuff into a backpack – then consider the 13-inch MacBook Pro from Apple (and yes, the keyboard has finally been fixed).

A variety of different configurations are available to suit your needs and budget, but it’s possible to get this laptop specced out very well indeed if you’re planning on doing any serious image or video editing. Don’t underestimate everything you get with macOS too, with Apple’s apps improving all the time.

Macs aren’t the way to go if your budget is tight, but if you can afford the 13-inch MacBook Pro then you won’t be disappointed – it’ll last you well through your years of education and probably beyond as well. The 10th-generation Intel chips are included, ahead of the switch to Apple Silicon.


The Lenovo IdeaPad L340 gives you great gaming performance on a budget.

LENOVO IDEAPAD L340

 

REASONS TO BUY

+GeForce GTX GPU on board+Top-rate fit and finish+Mid-tier price point

 

 

All work and no play makes for a very dull student experience, so you may well be looking for some gaming power when shopping for the best student laptop on the market – you just don’t want to pay full whack in terms of price, which is understandable (that loan won’t pay itself off).

Enter the Lenovo IdeaPad L340, a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that manages to keep the price down while ramping the specs up (take a look at that GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card with 4GB of video RAM). You should be able to play anything on this, even if you can’t quite ramp up the quality settings to the very highest level.

That extra screen space comes in handy for work as well as leisure time, and the specs inside this laptop mean it should last you comfortably for the length of your course – unless you’re studying to be an architect or a doctor, or something like that. It doesn’t look half-bad, either.

ACER SWIFT 3

 

REASONS TO BUY

+Power through work+Sharp, bright screen+Lightweight and compact

 

 

 

We’ve always been fans of the Acer Swift series, and the 2020 edition of the Swift 3 has done nothing to change our minds. You get a 14-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen for staring at those essays and video streaming services, while under the hood everything is powered by Intel Core i5 or i7 chips.

The closer you look, the better the Acer Swift 3 gets – it supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standards, for example, and has a decent selection of ports too (2 x USB-A, 1 x USB-C, and 1 x HDMI). At the top end of the configuration options, you can even have an Nvidia GeForce MX350 graphics card installed if you think you’re going to need it.

When you’re in the market for the best student laptop for going back to school, you want something that’s reliable, compact, easy to carry around, and great to look at – and the Acer Swift 3 ticks all of those boxes. Definitely, one to get on your shortlist if you prefer Windows.


HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST STUDENT LAPTOP FOR YOU

We hope our student laptop guide proves invaluable for anyone out there shopping for a system that’s capable, decent value, and a boon to your productivity. We’re constantly updating this list too with newer models and updated information, so be sure to keep checking back regularly, and we’ve also included some clutch buying advice to help you narrow down the ideal learning tool for going back to school.

Today’s computers need to be able to do much more than the primitive number-crunchers of old. They need to support a huge range of software, given that several courses have special requirements, as well as the standard office packages.

When it comes to software, Microsoft’s Office 365 suite is free for students, and there are also Google’s Chromebooks and the associated Google Docs suite to consider as well, with the latter also free to use.

These laptops need to be able to run HD video lectures without juddering of course, while a set of good speakers always comes in handy when the university day is done. These machines have to be affordable too, given the increased cost of schooling all around the world.

Integrated webcams are important as well, for web lectures and broadcast media-related courses, but these are now included as standard on every laptop. You’d be hard pushed to find a model without one.
