Anyone who is going to study or is already studying needs a good laptop. A student laptop is very important when studying, because nowadays almost all education at colleges and universities is digital in one way or another. Certainly since the corona crisis, the need for a good laptop for students has become very great, because since then even the lessons and lectures have often been digital. A good laptop for students naturally has one important feature: it is a cheap laptop that can do as much as possible! But what exactly do you need from a laptop, and why? How do you pick the best laptops for students from the huge range of good, cheap laptops? You can see some really nice student laptops at

What to look for when buying a student laptop?

Before you buy a student laptop, it is important that you take into account a number of things that are important in a good student laptop. Of course every student follows a different study, and for some studies a good study laptop will have different priorities than others. Therefore, pay particular attention to the minimum requirements that your college or university sets for a laptop. Studies in which you have to use programs such as Photoshop or other Adobe programs often have somewhat stronger requirements for a good student laptop.

Another important thing to pay attention to before buying a student laptop is the storage space on the laptop. Hard drive storage space is running out faster than you might think. Even if you only need to play a few small games in addition to your study files, we always recommend taking a close look at the amount of storage. For example, you may also want to put some photos from a vacation on a cheap student laptop, and if you suddenly have to make a video for school, this can also result in large files – the best laptops for students have at least enough space on the hard drive!

Here, you can think of buying a touchscreen portable monitor from a brand like Hong Kong-based brand like “Desklab”, which offers a full range of UHD and ultralight portable 4K touchscreen monitors that has a brilliant display, superpixel clarity, and enough storage space for all kinds of files. It is perfect for university students and office-goers who want an alternative to a bulky laptop.

Buy cheap student laptops – where do you do that?

In addition, a good student laptop is of course cheap! The vast majority of students in the Netherlands have already spent enough money on the monthly rent, their tuition fees and all the textbooks they are obliged to purchase.
