Recent data analysis undertaken by Cheap Laptops Centre has identified that more users want cheap student laptops which provide good value for money. These users are not simply settling for the cheapest laptop available, but they are looking for laptops for students that are competitively prices but offer functionality and a specification that will meet their needs for the next few years.
Further analysis has shown that these laptops are mainly in the 15” display model category with Dell, Asus and Toshiba laptops being very popular. This selection is understandable given that students require laptops that offer adequate screen estate to undertake the project work but also be portable enough to be carried around the University campus.
These findings further confirm that although the popularity of tablet PCs, especially the new Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1,has exponentially increased in the general consumer market, it is not the case with the student computer market. Students are becoming money smart and recognise that although it has its conveniences, the tablet PC will provide limited capabilities.
The purchase of a laptop is only part of the student I.T. package, thus any student budget will need to incorporate the cost of Microsoft Office, or similar Office productivity software, a laptop carry case and USB memory stick and ideally an external hard drive for backup purposes.
Cheap Laptops Centre offers price comparison facility for the latest tablets, laptops and Ultrabooks on sale in the UK from leading online electronic retailers. The price comparison facility is just one of the features presented; there are also tips and user guides available for those requiring additional advice or information before committing to a purchase.
The choice of laptops for students includes new laptops from Dell, Acer, Sony, HP and Acer with prices starting from $400 and come with a year warranty as standard. Refurbished laptops are also available which offer even better value for money. Prices start from $360 whilst the warranty period for refurbished models will vary.
