By | September 13, 2015

I’m 25 and I’m starting college in January full-time.. I plan on taking some online courses as well… I need a laptop that is going to be good for online courses, has a good webcam built in, good for watching movies, and also good for downloading music… Which is the best computer for college and everyday use? I’m not too concerned about the price… I just want something that’s going to fit every need!

    Go for the new mac. http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/ Its handy, the battery has a long life and the webcam is great. If your taking online courses the internet you use is more important then the computer, however you are less likely to get a virus when you use the Mac. Additionaly you can download a lot of funny games and the graphic is good as you are talking about everyday use. There is also a wide range of programs for mac to download movies and its more secure than any other company.

    Im not trying to promote the mac, but wants you go Mac you never go back!!

    Toshiba would definitely fit your needs!
    Dell’s are cheap, and after your warranty, its basically junk. Dells are only good while their warranty is intact.
    Acer is another decent laptop but if it is used for more than just light use, they wont last as long.
    HP/Compaq may have some cool and attractive laptops but they have the largest fail rate in the industry.
    eMachine is a “Walmart brand” for Acer. Decent hardware in a super cheap case.
    You also might want to check into an Asus, they have earned nothing but great compliments by their users. They’re built “solid” as a lot of reviewers have said.

    Bottom line, your best bet would be getting a Toshiba or Asus.
    I have been working with computers and laptops for more than 10 years. I have owned and worked on all of the above brands of laptops and I can honestly say that I have had least trouble with Toshibas and Asus’. They are very reliable and sturdy.

    And as of now, The top two brands with the lowest fail rates are Toshiba and Asus.

    Dell Studio seems to be a popular student choice these days.

    Don’t Get A Mac!! A dell is the best computer for the best price as of right now. You can get a really nice one with a camera, huge hard drive, and huge RAM, for around $400. Ohh and you can find the best deals at http://therealcollege.com Good Luck!
