Need advice on buying a suitable laptop for home learning?

There are many factors to take into account when purchasing a laptop, but the key areas are cost, processor and memory (unless they want to game on it, then we enter the rounds of graphics etc.). But purely for school work I would suggest a computer that has the minimum spec below:

  • 250 GB hard drive or higher
  • 4 GB RAM or higher (I would recommend if its a long term investment at least 8 GB)
  • 2.0 GHz Intel or AMD processor
  • Windows 10 or MAC OS 10.10 or later
  • Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox 48 or later (MS) / Safari 11 or later (Apple)
  • Anti-virus program (updated regularly)
  • Computer microphone and speakers
  • Web Camera
  • High-speed Wi-Fi

These are pretty common in laptops now and shouldn’t be too expensive. If you go onto any computer company website, such a Currys/PC World you can either filter a search by specs to find one for you, or many offer a ‘live chat’ function or phone number where you can speak to a technician and tell them what you would like it for and they can recommend one that is best suited for your needs.

Here is a link to a website that recommend the best in a wide range of laptops and prices suitable for home learning:
