Which laptop for school kids please?

Postby struggling » Wed Apr 03, 2013 8:40 pm

My DS is in secondary 1 and needs a computer for his school work - online research, word documents, etc.

Of course I am sure he will play games on it as well too.

Any recommendations?

I saw this on Dell online. 14inches Inspirion $ 649.
My IT friend said 'buy'!

Then I went to courts and saw a HP 15.6IN I7 at special $1299.

But my friend said kids that age(13 yrs), don't need all that extra capacity etc.

Any other views please?

Thanks much in advance!


What do you think?

Does he need to carry to school? If yes then need to consider the weight.

If not intended to be carry around, then can consider desktop as well.

For notebooks, brands like hp, lenovo, asus or acer are ok. I personally prefer hp or lenovo.

If can, buy the 3 years extended warrenty.

If need ms office, can ask for students edition. Much cheaper and can use for 3 device....

Ask for free ram upgrade... Sometimes they will give....
