When starting a college or university course you never really know what work you’re going to be doing and therefore what equipment you might need. 

But one thing you’ll 100% need no matter what your studying is access to a laptop or computer.

Choosing a good quality laptop that will fit with needs and is within your price budget can be extremely hard. So to help you out, here are 3 of the best, student-friendly laptops of 2021. 

MacBook Air M1

Despite the Air M1 being one of the newer MacBooks on the market, it is being sold at a reasonable price of £999. Plus if brought through the apple website, as a student you get £100 knocked off making it £899.

Like previous MacBook Airs It includes Apple’s magic keyboard, Touch ID, a Force Touch trackpad and a 13.3-inch Retina display. 

It also comes in three different colours, gold, space grey and silver. 

So with this laptop you can have a decent Apple MacBook with plenty of storage for all your work, all the singing and dancing Apple features to make completing projects easier and in a nice colour of your choice for a reasonable price.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

The Surface Pro is still one of Microsoft’s best devices that they have ever created and it’s perfect for on the go students.

It’s lightweight, small, and has a long battery life meaning students can do their work wherever they are without lugging a huge laptop with them.

The other feature that makes the Pro so good for students is the fact that it is both a laptop and a touch screen tablet. The keyboard is detachable leaving you with a tablet to draw, write and work on. This would be a good feature for those studying creative courses. 

The only downside to the Surface Pro is that the Keyboard is sold separately and therefore the standard price of £700 will be slightly higher to have the capability to use it as both a tablet and laptop.

HP Chromebook x360 14c

The Chromebook is definitely on the more affordable end of the spectrum costing only £499 and sometimes less with discount codes/ offers. 

The Chrome book is small and lightweight with its screen size of only 11inchs making it good for those on the go and like the Surface pro it is a 2 in 1  design meaning you can use it as a tablet or laptop. 

It has been proven to still run smoothly even with a couple of dozen tabs open making it handy for when you’re working on multiple tabs at one time plus it has over 10 hours of battery life once fully charged making it perfect if you’re out and about all day. 

The HP Chromebook x360 14c is defiantly one of the best student-friendly laptops of 2021 out there.
