[GTX 1650 – Gaming laptops are for education too
Amid the pandemic, there are still life events that need to continue – albeit not “normally.” Education, of course, is one of them.
For the second year, community quarantines continue to disrupt the course of education in the country. And most students are trapped in their homes, trying to cope with whatever their respective schools could provide them through distance learning.
One problem that confronts many students is having to share computer with family members – with siblings who are also studying or with guardians working from home. Online education couldn’t be achieved as well without the proper tools: a stable internet connection, an affordable data subscription and the capability to run properly all those CPU/GPU-intensive applications. And for many students, they would like a computing device that has a fast processor, has powerful graphics and is portable.
As this may be their first laptop, and with their parents probably looking for a second or even a third device to accommodate every user in the household, it pays to know the right kind of laptop that would suit their needs.
Portable computers or laptops are the preferred choice of many people nowadays, particularly in the work-from-home and distance learning scenarios. Laptops are easy to carry, save space and have lower maintenance than their desktop counterparts. Also, most modern notebooks are now powerful enough for both business as well as casual and even hardcore gaming applications.
But there are many laptops out there, many brands and models to choose from. So, how does one decide? Many would not think of a gaming laptop as education tools, but it makes sense to do so considering its quality and performance. On top of that, get the one that gives the best bang for your money and one with the best promos and freebies.
