The best notebooks for students focus on portability features and decent configuration, and are available under $1000.
College students frequently need to move their laptops from one class to another which necessitates a weight limit of 1.8 – 2 Kgs and a screen size not larger than 14 inches.
Furthermore, the battery life of the notebook can not be compromised on since students typically work on battery power; and a good 6 – 7 hours battery back up, along with at least 1GB RAM and 160 GB or more of hard disk space is what you need to look for.
The best student notebook combines good configuration with Wi-Fi access, a DVD drive and a couple of USB ports to conform well to student needs.
