Computers for college students
Whether you’re confidently beginning the application process, already packing up for the big move, or even midway through your core concentration – one tool you’ll always need as a college student is a reliable and fast computer. These days, there’s few reasons for a college student to explore purchasing any type of computer beyond a laptop. Laptops are generally light and mobile enough to ensure they don’t add much more heft to the already-cumbersome loadout of textbooks and other supplies taking up seemingly permanent residence in your campus backpack. But there are exceptions. And we’re here to help you decide.
At Lenovo, we have plenty of college computer options. So, we’re confident whether you choose the mobility of a laptop or extra horsepower a stationary desktop computer can offer – you’ll find a college computer that feels tailor made to your needs.
Our best laptops for college students
As stated above, laptops are the top choice across today’s modern 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 PC 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…
- Light and flexible 2 in 1 Yoga laptops that are great for both study, downtime, and touchscreen interaction.
- Legion gaming laptops that hold the raw power to run today’s latest games but feature a more neutral design that blends into classroom environments.
- 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’s a lot of choice out there. And there is. So, to help a bit more, we’ve broken down our top college laptops and computers by area of study.

Our best computer for college students
When shopping for a laptop, it’s easy to see there’s more diversity in the available offerings than ever before. Desktop computers, in their own way, are a bit more diverse as well, but you’ll still see much of the same “rectangular box” design across most brands as you did 20 years ago.
Don’t let the shell fool you.
Desktops still have a prominent place for those with high-powered needs. For gamers, computer science majors, or aspiring programmers, architectures, and engineers, a desktop computer in one form or another is often the best choice.
But, it’s not as easy to tell you what the best computer for any college student is, and that’s because desktops computers generally serve more focused needs than laptops.
For extreme gamers, we suggest you look at our Legion line of gaming desktop towers. Legion towers come with all the bells, whistles, and extreme power today’s gamers expect: the latest and greatest Intel® Core™ processors, NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series graphics, transparent side panels, RGB lighting effects, and more.
But for the nothing but down-to-business college student, we highly suggest our ThinkStation P Series line of workstation desktop computers. Workstation power goes above and beyond that of a normal desktop computer, and that’s often what you’ll need for
power-draining applications often employed by computer science majors, programmers, architects, and engineers.And don’t forget that for those cramped dorm rooms, college apartments, and especially for remote college attendees, we have space saving models that fit perfectly into more narrow spaces. Look to our stylish IdeaCentre All in One PCs or range of M Series Tiny desktops.
