The best student laptops 2020



Still in search of the best laptops for college?  We’ve tested our fair share of laptops, and we’ve come across a few that make for excellent laptops for students.
Students also require a device that delivers some power and ticks a few boxes beyond affordability, so paying a few extra bucks for a couple of extra useful features is a better value. 
Power, portability and battery life are more important when picking out the best laptops for college. They must be able to handle a student’s workload, some post-coursework streaming and light gaming, as well as boast a battery life that will last a whole school day on a single charge. Being thin, light and portable also goes a long way.
