Our best laptops for college students

Laptops are the top choice across today’s college campuses. And the reasons are clear. Over the last several years, laptops have advanced to the point that many models have the speed and efficiency to match up with some of their desktop counterparts. What’s more, a laptop isn’t always just a laptop anymore. There are models that easily fold into a tablet, models with the power to run the hottest personal computers (PCs) games, and some models that are just as efficient as the rest but help cut costs. Some of our most popular laptops for college students might be:

  1. • Light and flexible 2 in 1 Yoga laptops are great for both study, downtime, and touchscreen interaction.

  2. • Legion gaming laptops hold the raw power to run today’s latest games but feature a more neutral design that blends into classroom environments.

  3. • Ultra-sturdy ThinkPad laptops that are ready for everything a university can throw at you, and then the business world beyond.

Still, wondering where to go? Or what to choose? Don’t worry, we know, it sounds like there are a lot of choices out there. And there are. So, to help a bit more, we’ve broken down our top college laptops and computers by area of study.

Don’t fit into any of these laptops for college categories?

Don’t worry. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the options available to you. Your chosen degree is one aspect that can help you find a laptop that is right for you. Another great way of figuring out which college laptop will meet your need is to make a list of all the ways you expect to use your computer.

Lenovo ThinkPad for college students

Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are tough as nails and reliable, giving you the tools, you need to stay productive.

ThinkPad Yoga 2 in 1 laptops are designed with impact- and scratch-resistant glass that can withstand drops from desk height. You can open the laptop’s 360-degree hinge and use the screen as a drawing easel, watch lectures, and more. With the versatile ThinkPad, you have so many options for learning and completing projects.

For a more stylish work solution, the ThinkBook series relies on an all-aluminum design, Dolby Audio™, and Dolby Vision® technology. College students will love the series Standby feature, which allows you to wake the laptop in under 0.5 seconds. While in Sleep mode, ThinkBook can still download files and play audio, which may be useful if you're conserving battery. Fortunately, ThinkBook delivers up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge.

Our best 2 in 1 laptop for college students

Ready for something different? Our groundbreaking Yoga laptops, tablets, and 2 in 1s will turn heads — and you’ll find new ways to be productive on campus with them. Featuring bright screens, immersive audio, projectors, pen support, and an innovative keyboard, it has everything you need and more. It’s all yours to explore.

For an ultra-thin and versatile student solution, the Yoga 2 in 1 series delivers plenty of power. Select Yoga series laptops even include a garaged pen that slides into the chassis, so you can take notes and draw directly on the display. With an ultra-thin and lightweight design that slides into a small book bag, college students can enjoy a powerful 2 in 1 experience anywhere on campus.

If you're looking for a college student laptop that goes beyond surfing the web and productivity apps, we’ve got you covered. The Lenovo Flex series are full-fledged laptops that also double as tablets, thanks to their 360-degree hinge and full high definition (FHD) screens - perfect for streaming movies once the homework’s done.

Our best laptops for gaming and college students

There's nothing quite like losing yourself in an immersive story after a stressful midterm exam. Want the best laptop for college and gaming? Our premium Lenovo Legion and more affordable IdeaPad gaming laptops are great for college students who need a laptop for class, but also want to game with their pals when their work is done. These gaming laptops for college boast powerful processors, high-performance graphics, and overclockable central processing unit (CPU) options.

Laptops for online classes

If you want to use your laptop for online classes, Lenovo has top options for distance learning. Outfit your home office (or wherever you settle in) with the best laptops and tech. Need help deciding? Read about the tech you’ll need for remote learning in our handy frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Expect more from a computer with a solid state drive (SSD)

Today's college student computers look different because they are different. With SSDs and the latest in technology, you get speed, security, durability, and great design. We've taken a poll, and as it turns out, people are just happier when they go with a college student PC.

How much should you spend on laptops for college students?

Every college student has different priorities (depending on their field of study), and that means different computer requirements. An English literature major may not have the same CPU and graphics needs as a computer science or engineering student, for example. It's important to invest in a quality laptop that will serve you well for your entire academic run. At Lenovo, we offer a diverse range of college student laptops:

  1. • Performance laptops: for creators, professionals, and gamers — for when you need the power of a full desktop workstation.

  2. • Ultraportable laptops: for college students who want a little less heft to carry between classes.

  3. • Affordable laptops: for college students who need both value and performance from a single package.

  4. • 2 in 1 laptop: for college students who want to stay extremely flexible — devices that serve as a tablet when you want it, and a laptop when you need it.

  5. • Chromebooks: for college students that cut to the chase, featuring a web-based software suite from Google that's perfect for getting homework done.

Laptop deals for college students

At Lenovo, we’ve got more affordable laptops for college students as well. We offer year-round discounts on some of our top college laptop models. So, check out today’s deals now.

Choosing one of the best affordable laptops for college students doesn’t mean compromising on quality. Our computers will still support you through your degree and keep your academic work safe. When it comes to selecting the best affordable laptops for college take a look at your budget and match it with the most powerful computer you can afford.

Remember you are buying a computer to last you a few years. It’s worth looking just beyond your budget for the best affordable laptops for college students as they may last you longer.

Looking for gifts for college students?

When it comes to gift ideas for college students, a laptop is an excellent choice. You will be giving something that is not only stylish and beautiful to look at but can change a student’s college experience. The same is true for high school students and other grades.

Before you make a purchase, it’s important to understand the needs of the student you are looking to support. Granted, this means that your gift may not be a surprise, but it ensures that it will be well received.

If you are looking for gift ideas for college students, find out what type of computer they are currently using. Perhaps someone just about to leave home and start their college journey would benefit from one of Lenovo’s sturdy and reliable laptops. It may be just the right fit for them.

The best laptops for graduate students often need to be powerful enough to accommodate various apps and software. If you are shopping for a graduate student, consider a more high-end laptop from the Lenovo ThinkPad series. After all, laptops are built and bought to last. Something more powerful is likely to accommodate the student’s needs even after they graduate.

Shopping for the best laptops for college students has different considerations based on their year of study. It is also important to consider simplicity, ease of use, and what type of computing power your student will need.

Laptops make outstanding gifts for college students if their specifications match the college student’s needs. Apart from academic needs, it’s worth remembering that many college students love gaming and may want a more powerful laptop for that purpose.

How much should you spend on laptops for college students?

Every college student has different priorities (depending on their field of study), and that means different computer requirements.

It's important to invest in a quality laptop that will serve you well for your entire academic run. At Lenovo, we offer a diverse range of college student laptops:

  1. • Performance laptops: for creators, professionals, and gamers — for when you need the power of a full desktop workstation.

  2. • Ultraportable laptops: for college students who want a little less heft to carry between classes.

  3. • Affordable laptops: for college students who need both value and performance from a single package.

  4. • 2 in 1 laptop: for college students who want to stay extremely flexible — devices that serve as a tablet when you want it, and a laptop when you need it.

  5. • Chromebooks: for college students that cut to the chase, featuring a web-based software suite from Google that's perfect for getting homework done.

Looking for gifts for college students?

When it comes to gift ideas for college students, a laptop is an excellent choice. You will be giving something that is not only stylish and beautiful to look at but can change a student’s college experience. The same is true for high school students and other grades.

Before you make a purchase, it’s important to understand the needs of the student you are looking to support. Granted, this means that your gift may not be a surprise, but it ensures that it will be well received.

If you are looking for gift ideas for college students, find out what type of computer they are currently using. Perhaps someone just about to leave home and start their college journey would benefit from one of Lenovo’s sturdy and reliable laptops. It may be just the right fit for them.

The best laptops for graduate students often need to be powerful enough to accommodate various apps and software. If you are shopping for a graduate student, consider a more high-end laptop from the Lenovo ThinkPad series. After all, laptops are built and bought to last. Something more powerful is likely to accommodate the student’s needs even after they graduate.

Shopping for the best laptops for college students has different considerations based on their year of study. It is also important to consider simplicity, ease of use, and what type of computing power your student will need.

Laptops make outstanding gifts for college students if their specifications match the college student’s needs. Apart from academic needs, it’s worth remembering that many college students love gaming and may want a more powerful laptop for that purpose.

To find the best laptop for college, you need to identify your specific needs. Consider the performance first; a powerful laptop can handle multiple tasks simultaneously. The form factor is also important. For instance, convertibles and detachables offer flexibility in use. Look for a lightweight laptop, preferably under four pounds for easy portability. Also, consider the operating system, processor, and RAM that best align with your needs. 

Choosing the right laptop is crucial because it becomes an essential tool for your academic journey. It's not just for browsing the web or streaming movies, but for studying, researching, writing papers, and even attending online classes. The right laptop can increase your productivity and streamline your college tasks. 

A suitable laptop for college use should be lightweight yet powerful. It should have a fast processor, ample memory, and good battery life to withstand frequent use. The laptop should also be durable to last throughout your college years. 

The best laptop varies based on your needs and course requirements. If you're looking for versatility and portability, 2-in-1 laptops might be a good fit. For those requiring high performance, laptops with robust processing power would be ideal. And if you're into gaming, laptops with powerful graphics capabilities would be the top pick. 

Our Lenovo laptops are tailor-made for your college needs. They pack a punch in terms of performance, can take a beating, and won't break the bank. Whether it's for studies, entertainment, or both, we've got you covered.

The Yoga series is known for its flexibility and versatility, with a 2-in-1 design that allows them to function both as a laptop and a tablet.

If you're a gamer, the Legion series is a great choice. These laptops offer powerful processors and high-end graphics cards, providing an immersive gaming experience. They also have efficient cooling systems to prevent overheating during intense gaming sessions. But it's not just about gaming; these laptops also deliver reliable performance for your academic tasks.

Our laptops generally offer excellent battery life, which is crucial in a college setting where you might not always have ready access to power outlets. From attending classes to studying at the library, a laptop can keep up with your busy college schedule. 

In college, you'll often find yourself moving from one location to another - from your dorm room to the classroom, the library, or the coffee shop. Therefore, having a laptop with a long battery life is essential to ensure uninterrupted work and study sessions. 

The weight of a laptop is a significant factor to consider because you'll likely be carrying it around campus. A lighter laptop is more portable and less of a burden to carry, making it more convenient for daily use. 

If your workload is light, you might not need a high-end laptop. Prioritize a comfortable keyboard for typing, a decent processor for smooth multitasking, and a good display for comfortable viewing. A lightweight design and good battery life will also add to your convenience. 

For graphic design or video editing, you'd need a laptop with a powerful processor, ample storage, and excellent graphics capabilities. Laptops with these features are equipped to handle these tasks effectively. 

Convertible laptops offer great versatility. You can use it as a traditional laptop for typing papers or switch to tablet mode for taking notes, drawing, or just browsing the web. This adaptability makes it a great tool for various academic tasks. 

Gaming laptops offer powerful performance that can handle intensive gaming sessions. It's not just about gaming, though. These laptops also have the processing power to handle demanding academic tasks, making them a versatile tool for both work and play. 

The quality of a laptop's keyboard can significantly affect your typing experience. A comfortable and responsive keyboard can make tasks like note-taking and report-writing much easier. The backlit keyboards on many laptops also allow for more comfortable typing in low-light conditions. 

Yes, we do! We often offer special discounts for students. It's our way of helping you get a quality laptop for college without burning a hole in your pocket. Check out our website or get in touch with our sales team for the latest information on student discounts.
