Our Best Laptop for Students

To get the most done, students need a lightweight, fast, and powerful laptop with long battery life that they can tote across campus or from classroom to classroom. You may need CPU-intensive software for special coursework or a touchscreen for creative assignments. To find the best student laptop, you´ll need to consider your field of study, computing needs, and budget. Lenovo has laptops for every major in a variety of prices from under $300 to over $1,000

So, how much should you spend on laptops for students?

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

  • Ultraportable laptops for students who want a little less heft to carry between classes.
  • Affordable laptops for students who need both value and performance from a single package.
  • 2 in 1 laptopsfor students who want to stay extremely flexible — devices that serve as a tablet when you want it, and a laptop when you need it.
  • Chromebooks for students that cut to the chase, featuring a web-based software suite from Google that´s perfect for getting homework done.
