Best Back-to-School Laptop


When you have a house full of high schoolers, one of the most essential items on their back-to-school shopping list is a new laptop. Technology is always changing, and students find themselves needing a new laptop every school year. This year, my teenagers were requesting a laptop that is more versatile, and that can keep up with the multitasking they need during the grueling school year.

We went to Best Buy is past week, and started to research the different laptops that are currently on the market. The one that stood out to my teenagers was the HP Envy x360. The one feature that they first loved was that the screen has a 360° flip-and-fold design. Meaning they can turn it around which is great when working on a group project with other students.

The second feature that they loved was the full HD touchscreen. They liked that they can use their fingers or a Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus that is optimized for Windows Ink when working on a report, and don’t need just to use the keyboard or traditional mouse. One thing that I noticed was that the resolution was full of color and clarity in a 1920 x 1080 resolution!

When it comes to helping my teens with multitasking, the HP Envy x360 has an 8GB system memory with substantial high-bandwidth RAM to smoothly run your games and photo and video-editing applications, as well as multiple programs and browser tabs all at once.

Finally, the HP Envy x360 has a Windows 10 operating system that backs the Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, like the Edge Web browser that lets you markup Web pages on your screen.

We made our final decision to get our two high schoolers the HP Envy x360 when a Best Buy employee told us about the $100 student discount – making it a win for the students and a win for the parents.

When looking for the best laptop for your teenagers this school year, the HP Envy x360 at Best Buy is our top pick. The laptop is available in both a 13-inch and 15-inch display.
