The search for good laptops have skyrocketed ever since the pandemic began, bringing with it a lockdown, social distancing norms and with them, virtual learning. Students and parents, who have never before had to break their head over the technical specifications required out of a laptop, are having to wrap their heads around these specs (and what they indicate) overnight.
Specifications in a laptop
Chances are that you or someone close to you might be in such a situation. So what are some of the key features that one needs to look for in a laptop for students? For the laptop to be able to multitask easily, you need a minimum of 4GB RAM In fact, some of the best laptops under 30000 INR come with 4GB DDR4 RAM.
Any screen size is fine, because students are not doing any high-end design and production on their computers, and therefore do not need very large screens. They are also not carrying their laptops anywhere, thanks to the lockdown, so small laptops are also not exactly necessary. Parents can afford to dig their heels in and avoid escalating budgets due to pester-power over screen size.
If the laptop settled on has a low resolution camera, it might make sense to invest in an external high resolution webcam, rather than spending more on a laptop with a high definition web camera.
Since you are investing in a new laptop, also ensure it comes with Windows 10 operating system. Do ensure the laptop comes with good hard drive storage due to the fact that study material is now being sent virtually, sometimes in video format.
