Every year during mid to late August I put together my annual Back School buyers guide. It's that time of year where everyone who's acquiring their education are preparing themselves for the dual drums of the school year. Just about every student uses some form of technical gadget nowadays to gain that added edge so they can reach greater achievements in academia.
In this first installment of the Back To School Buyers Guide, we kick things off with a list of laptops I think will help keep the greater minds sharp. Laptops are no longer a social experiment from the educators, but they are a required necessity. From grade school to college, core curriculum are now using laptops in the classrooms.
Here's a list of laptops that should be in everyone's knapsack this Fall.
My Top Choice
Dell XPS 13
By far the Dell XPS 15 is one of the best Windows laptops on the market. It's definitely the best piece of tech Dell has ever produced in my opinion. The XPS 15 matches spec to spec with the 15-inch MacBook Pro when it comes down to hardware. An even brighter display with an UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 touch display.
To have an display that can generate so much pixels you have to have the hardware to match, which it does. The XPS 15 has an NVIDIA GeForce GT 750 2GB GDDR5 graphic card. It's rocking an Intel Core i-4712HQ as its processor, 16GB of RAM, an insane amount of storage 1TB 5400 rpm Sata Hard Drive+ 32GB mSATA solid state drive.
Selling Point: Sharp bright display

The MacBook Pro 15-inch Retina Display
The MacBook Pro 15-Inch Retina display is probably the top choice for any students be it high school or college. It has a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 256GB PCIe flash storage, Intel Iris graphics. The MacBook Pro can pretty much handle any type of operation thrown at it,video editing, graphic design,and photo editing. If you're a student who are studying those mentioned fields,this device would be perfect.
Selling Point: Retina Display
Where To Buy? Apple
Asus C300MA-DB01 ChromeBook
The ChromeBook does not have your traditional legacy operating system like the laptops I've mentioned above, it basically uses a Internet based operating system. The only native app in ChromeBook is Google Chrome Internet browser,this is pretty much the key to what makes up OS in whole. Despite its limitations,the ChromeBook is omnipresent in both schools and major universities. Most of the apps is all connected to Google,Gmail,Google Drive and Google Keep to name a few.
Selling Point: Low Price option
