The best laptops for students in the market

While smartphones and tablets offer increasingly powerful specifications, the laptop seems to be irreplaceable for certain activities. For a university student, having one is practically a necessity. The performance and duration of the battery are central aspects to select the best laptops for students, but the cost is another variable that comes into play. If you are looking for a new equipment, these are the alternatives that you should consider for quality, portability and price.

Why should you buy it? You will not find many laptops that offer a better combination of low price, excellent performance and lightweight design.

Who is it for? University students who do not have much to spend, but still require a good laptop.

Why do we choose the Asus ZenBook 13 UX333?

One of the best attributes of ZenBook is that it looks and feels of the highest quality, since it is made with the same type of aluminum chassis as the most expensive machines. It also has the unique ?concntric metal circle? finish of Asus that provides more eye-catching.

As if that were not enough, it is a thin and light laptop, with an innovative ErgoLift hinge that elevates the keyboard to a comfortable angle, and will not make you feel as if you were loading an economical machine.

But not only physically good, it also has a very efficient performance. The Asus has the eighth generation Intel Core i5-8265U quad-core Whiskey Lake processor and a 50-watt hour battery, which should keep the machine running during your academic activities.

Asus ZenBook UX333 is a solid and reliable option that shows that you don't need to spend an excessive amount of money to get an excellent laptop for college.

MacBook Air

The best for Apple lovers

Riley Young / Digital Trends

Why should you buy it? In its most recent update, the MacBook Air is back in the market.

Who is it for? University students who want a Mac but do not need too much additional energy.

Why do we choose the MacBook Air? The MacBook Air had long been an option for college students. It was thin, portable, reliable and (somewhat) affordable. The problem is that it hadn't been updated for a long time until 2018. The last version feels like a modern laptop with thinner bezels, a larger touch panel, USB-C ports and a higher resolution screen. It even has TouchID.

But like the previous MacBook Air, it is not the most powerful option Apple offers. Use only a dual-core processor, which means that you will have problems with intense multitasking and multithreaded applications. But if all you have to do is write articles, surf the web and watch Netflix, the MacBook Air will never feel slow.
