I'll hopefully start my economics course in October, I've been looking at laptops but I'm unsure which laptop to get.
- any recommendations ?
- which specs to look for?
- as an eco student would I need a laptop which is able to draw graphs at ease?
- I've saved up enough to buy a decent laptop, but rather not spend £600
- I highly doubt I will be gaming btw if thats something to consider

Thank you

I'll let someone else who has done this course confirm, but I expect any graphs you create will be generated by software from data input rather than drawn by hand.

Beyond that you're looking at the standard student complement of a quad core Core i5 or Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128-256GB of SSD storage, of which there are dozens of options ranging from £350 up to £1000 based on other factors. Do you have a preference in terms of screen size, are there other tasks you want to use it for beyond the basics like web browsing and essay writing?

thank you for the reply, screen-size preferably 13 inches and above is what I'm ideally looking at, and as of the other tasks, I'm not particularly a gamer, but more importantly I do really want a laptop that is reliable as in good battery life and shouldn't start to glitch or freeze

If you want a laptop that won't glitch or freeze, then whatever laptop you buy you should bin Windows 10 and install Linux :adore:
