    When it comes to buying a student laptop, there are several factors to consider. For starters, you’re likely on a budget of sorts, especially if you’re heading off to college.

    If you’re in the market for a new laptop, you’ve likely noticed it’s mostly dominated by two operating systems: Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s macOS. But in the last decade, Google has managed to shake things up a bit with its Chrome OS, which has allowed manufacturers to offer affordable Chromebooks.

    Let’s paint a picture: your absolute favourite artist is about to release a new album at midnight.
