Looking for the best laptop for students? The options are near limitless, whether you’re looking for a Chromebook, Windows computer, or MacBook. Still, there’s never been a better time to shop for either, as Back to School discounts are here ahead of the new academic year.
One of our favorite early choices is this stylish HP 15.6-inch laptop which is reduced by $46 – bringing it down to just $299 at Walmart. That’s a good saving on an already cheap laptop.
Key features: 15.6-inch screen, Windows 11, 256GB of storage
Price history: Before today’s deal, the lowest price we’ve seen this model is $269 – but this was for a used version. New, the laptop regularly sells for over its MSRP on Amazon’s third-party seller market.
Reviews consensus: This lightweight laptop brings all the efficiency and compatibility of Windows 11 in a stylish chassis with solid battery life and a 15.6-inch display. There’s a built-in webcam and speakers, too, and while you shouldn’t expect to unleash your creativity in more demanding apps, what’s here makes it ideal for carrying between lessons.
