    Bought myself an Acer Swift 3 a little over a year ago for university, and I love it. I never heard about the keyboard being a low point on this laptop, and I guess I got adjusted to it very easily since it never bothered me. Listening to it, the softer keys are probably what make this keyboard so quiet. Touchpad isn't my favorite type of touchpad, but it's still got a good click to it. Fingerprint sensor from my experience is just bad. Read my fingerprint 1 out of 3 times I used it, so I ended up ditching it for a PIN. Much faster overall. I love the full metal chassis- it gives it a premium feel, but the sides of the laptop's bottom half are actually kinda sharp. Only _kinda,_ though.

    Buy the MSI Modern 14 $899 version that has a 10th gen i5, 8 gbs of ram, and MX250 If...
    1) You are in the $900 price range
    2) Want a very lightweight portable laptop mainly for school that can also do some light gaming
    At this price point this is a great buy considering it's competitor the Razer Blade Stealth 13 with an i7, 16 gbs of ram, and MX150 is $1300.
    Razer Blade Stealth 13 is a better laptop but at the price point of the MSI Modern 14 it is a better buy.
    Edit: The MSI Modern 14 models have 2 fans while the MSI Prestige 14 models have 1.
    Don't buy the Prestige 14 models unless you plan on undervolting.

    I bought an xps 15 2 or 3 years ago now. I don't recommend it. Mine has severely declined in performance since then. It's basically useless now. Battery has tanked, and it's even been changed once. It's very very slow and no amount of optimisation can make it better. It's fan turns up to max 24/7 and there's nothing worse than the embarrassment of a loud pc in a quiet class. It can't play games anymore as it could when I bought it because it gets very hot and is also too slow.
    And before you say I should clean the fans for dust: I have done, and I do it regularly. Makes no difference. Settings for battery and performance on the desktop + bios doesn't make the fan slow down. Just don't buy this pc.

    Can you give a review on the new Lenovo yoga c740? Best buy has it on sale for $830 and I can't find any reviews on it because it's so new. I checked it out in person and honestly it felt amazing. I wanna hear your thoughts on its performance though. It's running a 10th gen i5 processor from Intel.

    Get a gaming laptop for home use while having it connected to a monitor, then a ultrabook for taking notes in classes, then an Ipad for reading is the best.

    No Thinkpads? Surface family is completely rubbish, impossible to open up, Apple copycats.
    When you talk about student laptop, it should be easily serviceable/ upgradable. Those ultrabooks are complete ripoffs.
    XPS (specially the newest ones), surface etc.are combined worst decisions of MS and Apple.
    Please encourage students to buy laptops with very low failure rates, easy repairability, easy upgradability. Not these everything soldered dongle clusterfucks.
