Any laptop that’s easily portable, lightweight and has a long battery life is great for students. Although there’s plenty out there, a Chromebook is a nifty all-rounder. It runs off Google’s operating system, so you’ll find it really easy to use.
You can print from your Chromebook using most printers that connect to Wi-Fi or a wired network.
Look out for printers that can print photographs. Inkjet printers are much better for photos than laser, as they’ll give you better colours.
Most printers are compatible with MacBooks, so you can take your pick.
Your college or university will most likely provide you with everything you’ll need for use during classes, but if you wanted to equip yourself with some basics for home learning, a laptop will give you the freedom to learn where and when you choose. Other basics you might want to consider are things like headphones and antivirus software.
Chromebooks are great for students. They’re lightweight for chucking over your shoulder and heading to lectures, and they have an impressive battery life for those long stints in the library.
If you’re looking for the best of the best, a MacBook is for you. You can expect brilliant spec, a lightweight design, good battery life and a very high build quality. However, they are expensive, so although they’ll offer added benefits for creative subjects, other models on the market can rival a MacBook’s battery life and weight, which would be better suited to a budget.
