Best Laptops for Financial Analyst

Best Laptops for Financial Analyst – To sum it all up, if you’re focusing on finance major degree you will want to get your hands on one of these laptops. As you start learning about creative ways to solve problems, you will want a reliable laptop to help solve problems in a numbers-driven way. Don’t be afraid to go for a MacBook if you have the cash for it. If not get yourself a budget option like the Acer Aspire 5 which should handle most of your workloads.


1.Apple MacBook Pro

This upgrade to the laptop line is the first truly big leap that it has seen in a long time.

That’s not to say that it looks all that different from previous models. In fact, as big of a change as the M1 chip is, it’s the only big upgrade the Pro 13-inch gets. If you have a 2019 or even an early 2020 model, for instance, you’ll probably want to wait a few generations before getting a Pro with an M1 chip.

However, it’s still a big update. This new model is 2.8 times faster than its predecessor and has a better battery life to boot. Additionally, it’s three times faster than comparable Windows laptops.

2.Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Lenovo gives you four screen choices, all with IPS instead of exotic OLED technology and backed by Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics. Three have 1,920-by-1,200-pixel resolution: our review unit’s 400-nit non-touch panel, a touch screen with the same brightness, and a 500-nit touch display with a PrivacyGuard filter (meant to keep airline seatmates from snooping).

The fourth is a 500-nit glossy panel with 3,840-by-2,400-pixel resolution. Lenovo says all but the PrivacyGuard screen feature reduced blue-light emission to ease eyestrain.

3.Acer Aspire 5

While it may look dated, under the hood, the Acer Aspire 5 is a powerful piece of kit thanks to the 10th Gen Intel Core processor with a fast M.2 SSD. Then, factor in 8GB of RAM, a decent 48Wh battery and 1080p IPS panel and what you get is complete reliability.

What’s more, as tested this is the 14-inch Acer Aspire 5 A514-52-582Y model (15-inch models and variants running AMD processors are also available), so despite the mediocre screen to body ratio this remains a pretty portable device.

4.Dell XPS 13.4″

The XPS series has always been a fantastic line of laptops and the Dell XPS 13 (2020) is no different. In fact, it raises the bar. The 2020 model is a worthy successor to the XPS line, which has been among the best laptops for around a decade, that makes some important refinements like adding an innovative webcam and thinner bezels while also improving the performance.

With this XPS 13 model, Dell has proven that the line truly is the bar for all other Ultrabooks out there, not to mention Windows laptops as well. The laptop comes with that elegant design that you expect with the line, as well as a surprising amount of power, a feature set on par with any other laptop out there, and a gorgeous display. Additionally, Dell has managed to create the newest iteration without sacrificing anything that made the previous versions so fantastic.

5.Lenovo Yoga Book

Even though the Lenovo Yoga Book is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops, it doesn’t have a physical keyboard – at least not like you would think. The Lenovo Yoga Book instead uses a unique hinged keyboard and trackpad completely without travel – it’s totally digital. That may sound awkward and difficult to get used to – and it is.

The Lenovo Yoga Book is still worth your time in 2018, especially with the low cost – which we’ll explore here in a minute. But its inputs separate from the screen, usable as a WAcom digitizer is a definite plus. Of course, cooking up a unique, never-before-seen laptop is a full-time job, and we wouldn’t advise writing off the Yoga Book. After all, breaking new ground will always take some getting used to.
