While smartphones have taken over a lot of the tasks people used to do on PCs previously, there are some things only a laptop can do. For students, laptops are far more important as laptops provide them a bigger screen and a physical keyboard to work on their projects and assignments. At the same time, laptops also serve as the primary entertainment device, as the smartphone is primary being in use for texting, socialising and much more. So, what are the best laptops for students going to school to what are best laptops for college students? Well, we have put together a list of budget laptops that will help you out with just that. These is our comprehensive list of the best laptop for students. Might we add that this list needn't apply exclusively to students but also to those who are buying a laptop for the first time. Such a user may not expect too much from their laptop, in which case the basic specs offered by these laptops should be sufficient for infrequent or moderate use.
Powered by Intel's 8th Gen Core series CPUs, the IdeaPad S340 combines the strengths of the IdeaPad 330 and IdeaPad 330S. It's the cheapest Lenovo laptop to sport a physical shutter for the webcam. It's a good buy for students and working professionals alike.
Though it runs Chrome OS instead of Windows, the HP Chromebook 14 is an ideal choice for anyone looking to browse on the web, check email, and watch videos occasionally. What's more, the Chromebook 14 sports a solid build for a laptop of its price.
Successor to the 2018 IdeaPad 330, the IdeaPad S145 recently entered the market with a slightly slimmer and lighter look. The S145 range sports Intel's 8th Gen Core series CPUs with both SSD and HDD options. The screen size is either 14 inches or 15.6 inches depending on the variant you choose.
The 2019 Asus VivoBook 14 is in our top ten list because it's the first model in India to bring the Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU to the masses. It's also a very good laptop otherwise for everyday computing and light entertainment. The keyboard quality has gone up too.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 330S has a classy design, solid build, crisp non-glossy display, and adequate battery life. It features 8th-gen Intel Core series processors. The base model has 4GB of RAM and 1TB of HDD-based storage. The display is a Full HD non-glare unit that displays colours beautifully.

It also includes an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU with 2GB of VRAM. The 15.6-inch HD display is ample for all kinds of tasks, and 1TB storage is pretty much the standard at this price.
