What would suit me the best for college - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I would recommend Vivobook for a student. I think this is a very versatile device. Since you are studying you can use this as a PDF reader. It is pretty light and thin so that makes it easy to carry around. It also houses a core i3 processor so performance wouldn't be that weak for its price. You didn't mention that you are a gamer so this laptop's inability to play heavy games wouldn't really affect you I suppose. The most important thing I guess is that this is good for multimedia and school purposes.

Even an i3 is good for multimedia?

An i3 and HDx000 would be perfect for youtube/facebook machine. I can't see Youtube being slow on any modern computer.

You only need better parts if you are doing some computing or 3D gaming. Some 2D games may give you trouble. (I know Thomas was Alone is a bit laggy on my Macbook Air).

The only part of Excel that would be slow would probably be starting it up. Even crunching numbers should be fine, unless you have massive 50,000 line spreadsheets.

I am also in favor of lighter notebooks (ultra books or 13 inch). Once you get used to the lightness, if you ever hold someone else's laptop, it will feel like a giant stone block.
