Best Budget friendly Laptops for Students!

It is a fact that students need laptops. But the bitter fact is that most of the students cannot heftily invest in Laptops. They need laptops that can function for their lectures, zoom classes, and of course projects. The decision sometimes is difficult as most students don’t know the specs and need it to be budget-friendly. Also, this post is concerned with the most budget friendly laptops for students. If you have good affordability, read our article about the best laptops of 2022 to decide upon!


1. HP ENVY X360 13

If a student is looking for quality and affordability, then the HP Envy x360 13, is by far the best choice. With a price of  around $800 and great graphics, a handy keyboard and AMD Ryzen processor, it is our best pick for 2022. It also supports certain games and can be used for light gaming.  It has Intel options and gives a good battery life. However, the screen size looks absurd. It is 16*9. It also lacks Thunderbolt and HDMI support. Yet in this price and for only studies purpose, it is one of the most reliable picks!

2. Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 3

Costing around $650, and you may be lucky to buy it at half the price at the Microsoft store! The reasons to buy are many, especially for the students as its cost is low and it is a 2-in-1 tablet. It has the following specs:

CPU: Intel Pentium Gold Processor 6500Y – 10th Gen Intel Core i3
Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 615
RAM: 4GB – 8GB
Screen: 10.5” 1920 x 1280 (220 PPI) PixelSense Display

It has a good screen and a battery life with a good professional keyboard.

3. Acer Swift 3 (2021)

While Acer has been a great choice in Laptops lately, it is for sure giving us a great time working at its Swift 3. This is one of the most technologically equipped laptop as compared to its price. For those looking for its specifications, here they are:

CPU: 11th-generation Intel Core i5 – i7
Graphics: Intel Iris Xe Graphics
Screen: 13.5” 3:2 IPS VertiView Display or 14” 16:9 FHD IPS
Storage: up to 1TB PCIe Gen SSD

It is light in weight, great for multi-tasking, comes in 3 colors, and has good battery life. We only don’t like its speakers and the fact that its webcam quality is poor!
