Best Laptops for Nursing Students – A laptop is one of the best things you can buy for nursing school — you’ll use it for everything from note-taking to homework assignments and online exams. If you’re using nursing e-book textbooks, you might even read chapters on your computer. Students spend so much time in front of the screen, in fact, that many nursing programs require each student to have their own laptop.
1.Apple MacBook Air
Coming into this review, I had a catalog of potential pitfalls that Apple could have fallen into when switching from an Intel chip to its own processor. Chip transitions are devilishly hard and don’t usually go smoothly. This MacBook Air not only avoids almost all of those pitfalls, but it gleefully leaps over them.
Not everything is perfect, of course. Apple’s insistence on using dumpy webcams continues to be a bummer, and running iPad apps is a mess. But as I used the MacBook Air, I often found myself so impressed that I had a hard time believing it.
2.Lenovo ThinkPad E15
In contrast to the smaller Lenovo ThinkPad E14, we are reviewing a configuration with the dedicated AMD GPU. The reviewed sample model 20RD0011GE contains an Intel Core i7-10510U, the AMD Radeon RX 640, 16 GB RAM, a 512 GB SSD as well as an FHD screen. This is a high-end configuration that costs 1,019 Euros
The predecessor Lenovo ThinkPad E590 is a logical choice for a comparison device. Like with the ThinkPad E14, we take in the more expensive Lenovo ThinkPad T590 into the equation as well. Additional comparison devices are the Dell Vostro 15 and the MSI Modern 15.
3.ASUS ZenBook 13
The Asus ZenBook 13 UX325 originally appeared in July but was recently refreshed following Intel’s announcement of its 11th-gen Core processors and Iris Xe graphics. The models from earlier in the year with 10th-gen CPUs are still available, though, and are essentially the same as the 11th-gen versions except for the processors and an upgrade from Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 4.
Buying the newer 11th-gen model will get you some future-proofing, but it also comes with a slightly higher price tag. If you’re not on a strict budget, I would suggest going up to the newer 11th-gen configurations.
4.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.
5.Acer Swift 5
With the introduction of Intel’s EVO platform, there is now a quite useful label marking laptops that possess some key specifics. Currently these always include Tiger Lake CPUs, a slim build, a specific battery life, and a required brightness of the display. How well these features are implemented is shown for example by our tests of the MSI Prestige 14 EVO, the Schenker Vision 15, and the Dell XPS 13 9310.
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55T also belongs to the laptops with an EVO label. In our test unit configuration, it competes with an Intel Core i5-1135G7, the internal Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD against the competitors listed below. Below each section, you can also add more laptops from our database to the comparison.
Best Laptops for Nursing Students – Nursing students are loaded with all kinds of tasks on a daily basis from random reports to captstone projects ,exams and of course these stressful lectures which is probably the reason why you’re after a laptop.
At the end of the day its all about the exams right? It isn’t unusual to be bombarded with detailed questions where a three word answer lies somewhere within a book of 1000 pages or of course in the notes you took of one of your fast paced lectures.
