Each year, thousands of freshmen look for a laptop or notebook before college begins. A laptop has become an item on any must-have-college-supplies-list right along with a backpack and a graphing calculator. A laptop or notebook are good tools to do homework, make weekly plans, communicate with teachers, friends and of course family.
A lot of lectures are delivered through PowerPoint slides these days, and it is helpful (sometimes required) for students to download and review the slides prior to the class. Many colleges have a mandatory laptop policy. So no matter what school you’re heading to, the most frequent question is “what is the best laptop for the college years.
Wi-Fi is ubiquitous on modern campuses and indeed one of the reasons why laptops have become so popular today. Most laptops come with built-in Wi-Fi cards in order to access the internet. Check with your schools IT department as to what Wi-Fi standard is commonly being used on your campus. If you plan to conduct a fair amount of work outdoors on your laptop, you may consider a laptop that has a “matte” LCD screen instead of “glossy”.
