Indeed there had been a time when XPS series by Dell was actually the most common one. However at this point, they have brought a brand new notebook within the Inspiron series which has established itself far better than XPS series. The style is completely different and also the third generation i5 chip as well as AMD Radeon High Definition visual allows it to be a lot more fascinating. Dell Inspiron SE is usually loaded with Waves Maxx Digital Audio 4.

  1. I don’t have much idea about students needs these days, but I have used many laptops and of different brands.. so no matter if it’s students or any other person.. no other laptops can be matched with macbooks.. but Lenovo Ideapad laptop has some nice features which might come handy for students.. still I expected macbook or sony viao to be on this list.

    1. Thanks for your comment Darren, and I am sure you know what you are talking about and I completely agree with you about Macbook and Sony Viao as they are the best laptops in the market right now.. but there are many things which are required by students in laptops.. that is why here we have made this list, and these are the best for them according to their needs and flexibility.

  2. Recently I bought a dell inspiron special edition laptop for my little sister and it looks like she has been really satisfied with it and I actually thought it was the best one for college students. Anyways, it’s still in the list and on second spot so it can’t really be that bad. Wish I had checked out on web before, but thanks anyways, your post was helpful!

  3. Just bought a toshiba satellite laptop, thought it would be great after reading your review.. but I am not really satisfied with it because whenever I try to run sony vegas or adobe photoshop on it, it starts hanging.. so I wouldn’t prefer it for anyone to do heavy tasks, but other than that for entertainment purpose or browsing internet this laptop is perfect.


  4. I am looking forward to buy Dell Inspiron special editing for my son who needs a laptop badly right now for college, but looks like it is out of stock in most of online stores.. I don’t like rest of two you’ve posted above, so any idea with which laptop should I go? And my budget is about 500 to 600 dollars and looking to buy a Windows PC not of Mac OS or any other.

    Because of your budget and since you want it for college then I’d prefer you go with Sony Vaio series since you can get one of those easily in your budget or if you want Dell Inspiron only then you can look into local stores, you might get little bit costly there but I am sure you’d fine one.

  6. Marc,

    How much memory and GB does a student really need in a laptop? Plus my student wants to carry their laptop around so am I then looking at a 14′ laptop? I like your recommendation of Sony Vaio.. willl they hold up well and have a good upgrade path?

  7. I recommended Dell laptops for my niece/nephew last fall. The one didn’t make it 6 months before the hard drive died. Now the touchpad buttons stopped working.
    I will never ever ever recommend Dell. Biggest POS out there.
