Digitization does not stop at education either. Many schools are already working on laptops, learning and researching them at home. We present nine laptops for students from different price ranges that meet different requirements.
While it should above all be a cheap and robust notebook for the very young students, students of older grades can benefit from more powerful devices. So there is no ideal laptop for schoolchildren – the choice always depends on the individual requirements of a notebook. Anyone looking for a laptop for school should think about their own needs in advance and set up appropriate purchase criteria.
As a rule, a notebook should be easy to transport for schoolchildren and not too difficult. This excludes many gaming computers, for example. Devices with a display size of less than 15 inches are particularly portable. A long battery life is also an advantage when used at school. Other purchase criteria can include the robustness, the ergonomics of the keyboard and the nature of the display – matt or glossy. Matte displays are usually less reflective and can be easier to read. Last but not least, the price probably also plays an important role. We have therefore put together different models from different price ranges.
9 Best Laptop – To get started: devices up to 500 euros
For the entry it should be a particularly inexpensive model? Do not worry, there are also reasonable laptops for less than 500 euros, with which tasks such as text editing, internet research and the like can be easily carried out. These models often rely on Intel Atom, Intel Celeron or AMD processors, but sometimes an Intel Core i3 is also available in this price range. None of these models offers less than 4 GB of RAM, which should be enough for the tasks described above. If you place higher demands on your notebook or need more than 64 or 128 GB of internal memory, you can jump directly to the next price range.
Acer Aspire 3
The cheapest variant of the Acer Aspire 3 has a 15.6 inch full HD display with a matt surface. The processor, an AMD 3020e, is supported by 4 GB of RAM, the SSD holds 128 GB. There is a keyboard with a number pad and, among other things, three USB ports. If you can spend a little more money, you can get the Acer Aspire 3 with a smaller 14-inch display or 10th generation Intel Core processors.
Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3 is slim and light – and therefore well suited for regular transportation to school and home. The 11.6 inch display has a glossy surface. For this, it can be folded down completely and you can also use the notebook as a tablet. According to the manufacturer, the convertible\’s battery life lasts for a whole day. Another advantage of the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3: It works without a fan, so quiet work at school shouldn\’t be a problem.
Microsoft Surface Go 2
Just like its predecessor, the Surface Go 2 from Microsoft is beautifully small and light, but still of high quality. With an entry-level price of 459 euros, it just cheats into this price range. However, you must note that the keyboard is not included in the price. The device only becomes a fully fledged laptop for school with this so-called type cover. The convertible scores with its versatility, great display, performance and battery life
The middle class: devices up to 800 euros
If you want something more and are willing to spend more money on a student laptop, you will find good all-round models in the price range up to 800 euros. These laptops are often of higher quality and perform more demanding tasks, mastering typical school tasks, such as image processing and some PC games.
Huawei MateBook 13
Lenovo IdeaPad 5
HP Envy x360
The upper class: devices over 800 euros
There is no need for an expensive laptop for most school purposes. For one or the other, it may still be worthwhile to invest in particularly high-quality or high-performance devices that last long and remain technically up-to-date. That is why we are also presenting three suitable laptops for the school in this price range.
