In this modern age, having a laptop is definitely essential to students for both their educational and lifestyle needs. Almost all academic subjects and programmes in school these days require them to have knowledge of working with different computer applications.
A laptop has become a quintessential learning tool for many students as they can take important notes during classes or use it for research and discussion with project mates and lecturers. It doubles up as a multimedia device for playing games and enjoying music as all work and no play equal to dull student life!
Many households in Singapore are also replacing desktop computers with laptops due to the convenience of being able to go mobile, be it in school, at home or at a café when one needs a different environment and a flick of inspiration.
Getting a brand-new laptop is indeed one of the major steps for students who are about to enrol in university. Here are some of the factors that you should consider before deciding on the right laptop for your child:
- Battery life and multitasking features to get through the school day
- Processing power and storage options, depending on the applications that your child may need for school
- Slim, light and durable design for the ease of being portable and working anywhere
