What makes the best student computer?

From working with students, schools and universities for years, we understand that you need to study effectively and have handpicked some of the best student laptops and computers that offer you:

Long lasting battery life

Everyone, including students, want laptops to hold a charge. As on-the-go, portable devices they need to last for several hours without being connected to a power source. Apple MacBooks offer very good battery life, as do our HP and Dell models, meaning you don't need to worry about sitting in class without a power point.

Lightweight and quality design

Back to portability, lightweight designs mean carrying around student laptops and tablets isn't a chore. Nearly every laptop is light and manufacturers normally decrease weight along with technology advances when new models are released. However, when you pick a refurbished model you'll be paying considerably less, potentially only a few months after release depending on availability.

Powerful performance

Laptops for students, without a doubt, should run fast. Speed is essential for getting work done so pick a computer or laptop with enough memory or RAM for your usage. Generally speaking anything over 3 or 4 GB of RAM will be suitable for studying tasks and more; playing audio, watching video, and using multiple software at once. Choosing a SSD (solid state drive) will make a computer run faster than if you have a HDD (hard drive) as it uses flash memory to find files faster, speeding up tasks.

Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS?

Most students will lean towards using a computer running on Windows or the relevant Apple operating system. If you're already using one, you may want to stick with what you know, or try something new. We stock a range of computers running both to meet your system preferences.

Manufactured by leading brands

All of our products are from leading brands including Dell and HP, with Apple being part of our core refurbished range. A popular choice for student computers, the lightweight Apple MacBook Air models are sleek and stylish, with high resolution screens and offer great performance across tasks including writing essays, internet research, video editing, coding and artwork. By purchasing a refurbished Air, iMac or iPad you will receive some amazing tech that can handle any task at an affordable price.

When choosing your new computer, it’s worthwhile to consider how you will be using it, and keeping this in mind as you browse within your budget. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, we have a range of upgrades available to customise our stock.

Our free one year warranty

Our Q20 promise gives you peace of mind when purchasing a refurbished laptop or computer from Hardware Associates. With over 20 individual checks and a rigorous testing process, all of our tech comes with at least a one year warranty to offer you peace of mind.

All of our refurbished computers are either Grade A or Grade B meaning they will work just as new, but without the brand new price tag.

Laptops for online classes

When picking between the best student laptops for online classes, you can't go wrong with long lasting battery life, your preferred operating system, and perhaps most importantly for your usage, screen size.

Do you want to be able to have multiple windows open with the virtual class clearly visible and a document up for notes and research? Whilst these can be done on smaller screens sizes of 13 inches, consider something bigger if you're not happy with your current screen size when completing these tasks.

Choose green computing for your studies

We are proud to offer students incredible choice when it comes to the technology used to improve studies and stock only the best options when it comes to working towards qualifications.

By purchasing refurbished IT you are contributing to:

As part of this, we are dedicated to ensuring our range of refurbished IT is budget friendly and accessible for every student who wants to be ‘green’, as everyone should be given the option to reduce their carbon footprint.

Save money with refurbished IT

By buying refurbished IT, you are choosing green and environmentally friendly tech - that’s also budget friendly. As these models and hardware are already manufactured and are ready to be reused, you’re recycling the resources and core minerals it took to make them originally, rather than stretching these natural resources by choosing a brand new machine.

One material being saved when you choose refurbished computers and laptops is cobalt, which is used to make the Lithium batteries that power our machines. It is estimated that there is only a 40 year supply left on the planet. As these resources are being depleted by new machines, recycling used models reduces waste and ensures better longevity and use from the materials that have already been used.

As there are less and less minerals available to produce IT hardware, we all need to be aware of how we can reduce our reliance on ‘getting more’, and how we can start reusing. For the environment, your education and your wallet, you’re in the best place to buy and upgrade your student computer, laptop, MacBook, iPad or iMac for your studies.
