Received your CAO offer and now it’s time to get ready for the next step? Starting college can be a pretty expensive time for parents and students alike.
Currys revealed today that the Off Starting College and Back to School season in 2021 saw unprecedented levels of laptop traffic and sales on their website, second only to Black Friday! And it looks like this year will be no different!
Laptops are a pretty essential part of most people’s third-level education, and picking the right one for you can often result in confusion, but fear not, Jaimie Cantwell, Head of Commercial at Currys has some advice when picking out your laptop this term.
“To make sure you’re getting the best value for money when choosing a laptop, you need to have a pretty good idea on what you need, and then start adding the things you want. If you’re not sure where to start, there are some easy questions to help steer you in the right direction. What operating system do you like?? Does is need to be light? Are you using it for many things? Most important of all, what coursework will you be using it for? If you’re going to be designing on Adobe or running engineering programs, it's important to weigh up performance vs value and make sure your laptop fits the bill first time round, saving hassle (and money) down the line! Similarly, if all you need is a lightweight device with a long battery, there’s no need to break the bank on nice-to-have features that you won’t actually use.”
