Here are the best laptops for school/college below:
MSI Katana GF66
It has a 144hz screen, and a luminated keyboard for those late night projects. It is also MSI’s cheapest laptop. It has a memory of 166GB, and the network is WI-FI 6
Despite being equipped with top hardware, this is what the MSI Katana GF66 delivers.This machine pairs a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics with one of Intel’s latest 11th Gen processors. Elsewhere, the Katana serves up a 144Hz display and a surprisingly versatile keyboard.
he MSI Katana GF66 boasts powerful performance with its Intel Core i7-11800H processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU packed in a $1,399 laptop. Sounds great, right? Well, when you’re hit with its dull 15.6-inch display, shallow speakers and loud fans, you might reconsider. Then again, you can’t experience it for long, as this laptop lasts less than three hours on a charge.
MSI’s Katana GF66 is a good choice if you’re looking for pure performance, are using an extended display, and are constantly plugged in.
M1 Apple MacBook Air
It has a very sharp finish . It is full of energy and it has adjustable brightness. It can go up to 2TB and a very smooth feel to it.The MacBook Air (M1, 2020) is a great value laptop, but it is still very expensive. There are some brilliant budget laptops out there these days that offer excellent performance for a lot less. The MacBook Air doesn’t have a revolutionary design, nor does it try to win over Windows users too much.The new Apple MacBook Air with M1 took your idea of what a MacBook Air is, and threw it in the recycling bin. Yes, it’s still got the same iconic wedge aesthetic, but Apple Silicon makes it far more powerful and capable than ever before. Thus, a new era kicked off for the MacBook Air — one with Pro-grade power that challenges Intel-based Windows PCs — and often beats them.
Lenovo ThinkPad E15
A ton of notebooks was released at CES 2021. The majority of them – meant for gaming, and sporting the latest and greatest from NVIDIA and AMD. However, in order to keep ourselves in check (and while we wait for most of the aforementioned laptops to become available), we will take a look at the ThinkPad E15 Gen 2. Ultimately, it is a notebook, that aims at the budget business laptop crown, fighting with the HP ProBook 450 G8, and the Dell Latitude 15 3510.
In order to achieve that, Lenovo is sporting the Tiger Lake processors from Intel, which finally deliver both CPU and GPU performance to the business market. Wherever you look at them, they are a significant improvement over the Comet Lake and Ice Lake architectures.
Additionally, you get to choose if you want to stick with the integrated graphics or go for the dedicated GeForce MX350, or MX450.
Thankfully, this year, you can only purchase the laptop with a 1080p panel, which means no 768p nonsense! However, keep an eye for the impostor in the face of the TN panel – you wouldn’t want that either.
Dell XPS 13
You can’t really go wrong with a Dell XPS 13. Not only is it a great perennial Windows alternative to the MacBook Air, it’s a fantastic portable that routinely ranks amongst the best Ultrabooks, not to mention best laptops, on the market.
With the Dell XPS 13 (late 2020) model, the XPS line only gets better thanks to its Intel Evo certification that’s only awarded to certain top-performing laptops. To get that certification, a computer must meet certain speed, efficiency, and performance requirements. This also means that the laptop comes at a premium, especially when you get into higher configurations.
The Dell XPS 13 (late 2020) still offers a lot of value for many users, even if it’s not among the cheapest portables around. That’s thanks to powerful internals like a 2TB NVMe SSD, 16GB RAM, an Intel Tiger Lake CPU, and, of course, a gorgeous almost bezel-free 16:10 full HD display which can be upgraded to 4K.
Asus Vivobook Pro 14X OLED
Asus seems to have shifted its entire focus on laptops and is trying really hard to make OLED mainstream. It has already launched multiple machines with the OLED panel, including the ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED – which had two of these, and the latest to join the portfolio is the Asus VivoBook Pro 14X OLED. The company has also launched a 16-inch variant of the laptop.
Asus is clearly trying to seduce the creators (probably the biggest target audience here) by putting OLED in the name itself. There is still a cost you need to pay to opt for the more portable 14-inch variant of the laptop. It comes with a 2.8K OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate while the VivoBook Pro 16X comes with a better 4K OLED panel.
Apart from that, both the machines have almost similar sets of specifications to offer. The one I have got to use for a few days and will talk about in detail, comes in these specifications – Intel Core i5-11300H, Nvidia RTX 3050, 16GB of RAM, 720p HD camera, dual band Wi-Fi and more. It is priced at Rs 94,990 — and, not so surprisingly, aims to take on the M1 powered MacBooks.
