I recently picked up an Acer Aspire 5 laptop. I work from home and travel, so I needed a lightweight, portable laptop I could use locally. I also wanted to make sure it could keep up with my day-to-day activities — conference calls, web design and development, multitasking, etc. It’s the 21st Century, and electronics technology has advanced at a rate that’s barely imaginable to the people who lived before us. Acer is the third largest laptop manufacture globally, trailing behind Dell and HP. They pride themselves on being affordable, with laptops starting under $500. I’ve always been a huge fan of Acer laptops and have owned quite a few of them since my high school days.
Acer has been in the laptop business for a long time, and although it is not considered a preferred brand because of the competition, many of its models are worth a look. If you are a student and have been in the market for Acer Laptops for Students, then you should consider choosing one.
Acer laptops are fantastic, look amazing, and have several different models you can choose from. Acer laptops are very reasonably priced, but pricing on them can differ quite a lot. If you have a strict budget determined by how much you can spend on a laptop, it makes sense to stick with it to ensure you get the laptop you need for the price you’re happy to pay.
Many models come with high price tags but can have slower speeds and not be as powerful as their more expensive counterparts. If you ask anyone what’s the best laptop to buy, they’ll probably tell you that it doesn’t matter what brand or model of laptop you buy, it’s just how well it functions once it is bought. However, if that person was in the market for a new laptop, would they buy an Acer? Of course, they would.
Know your needs
First things first: When you’re getting ready to buy a laptop, you’ll have your heart set on a particular model. This model will probably feel good in your hands. It will perform well on every task you throw at it and, most importantly, it will have all the features that tickle your fancy. Alas, when you set foot in the laptop showroom and see all the models in person, your excitement might give way to a bit of panic. Before you know it, all of those exciting features might start to look like drawbacks after all. A few hours in the showroom later, and you may end up with a laptop that doesn’t suit your needs (which is why they’re there).
If you consider buying a laptop, you should know that you shouldn’t buy the laptop just because it’s cheap or because it has great specs. You should buy a laptop that suits your needs and, if possible, one that has a good price-quality relationship.
First off, keep in mind that you will be using it for school work. You mustn’t skimp on the quality of your laptop because you’re planning to use it for school work. Your laptop is an essential tool for your education, and running a laptop with low processing power or slow memory will seriously hinder your ability to study and succeed in class.
Laptop buying decisions are never simple. Every year there’s a new model, a new operating system, and some change to the hardware that makes your old laptop seem outdated. In fact, I had many electronics teachers who would warn me not to purchase ‘outdated technology’ as it was just a waste of money. And after years of experience buying laptops and old electronics off of Craigslist, I can tell you that they were right. But with laptops, everything is a trade-off between speed, screen size, battery life, weight, and cost.
