Choosing a laptop for university studies

I know these are very sexy little laptops but you are very likely to find an 11 inch screen confining if you need to write something on it for very long or stare at the screen very long. For serious work a larger screen is better even if it is going to be heavier. At least a 13 inch and your best bang for the buck is going to come with a 15 inch screen. Also those have very limited processing power which you will notice very quickly

 

If you can squeeze out another $80 this is an i7 laptop with a 14 inch screen:

15 inch i5 for $560:
