High school students need better technology than they might have had in younger grades. They typically have more complex assignments, research papers and presentations, as well as specialized software which requires more storage space. They will also require access to the cloud and be ready for potential remote classes. So, what should you look for in a laptop for high school students and beyond?

1. Lightweight

Will the student be lugging around a backpack all day long? If so, a lightweight, thin laptop is the way to go. Aim for a laptop weighing less than 4 lbs for easy portability.

2. Durable

It’s important to consider a laptop that is not going to easily crack and break. Look for one made of a more durable material, such as magnesium or carbon alloy with a polycarbonate shell.

3. Good Quality Webcam and Clear Audio

f students need to take classes virtually, poor audio and picture quality make it difficult to stay engaged. Look for a laptop with a built-in webcam with microphone and high quality speakers.

4. Sufficient Battery Life

Make sure the laptop has a battery that will last throughout the day. The last thing a student wants to do when they get home is to charge their laptop before doing homework.

5. Ample Storage Space

Will students need to save large presentations or edit large video files? Consider a laptop with at least 123GB SSD storage space.
