    "Depending on what you need a laptop for, this may not have enough power for applications that have high CPU usage like photo or video editing programs. If you're just browsing the internet and typing up documents then this would be perfect to save a lot of money."

    "I think having this laptop for universities is just stingy of the school. This is clearly not the best laptop out there not even in the to 200s and this laptop tends to decrease functionality quickly. But I would say it is better than the dell laptop above"

    "The Lenovo Flex 4 is a must have for college students. Mine arrived just before I moved into my dorm and I have to say I couldn't be happier with it. The compact design really seals the deal as I'll need to carry it to all of my classes and it's super convenient. It can handle any work I throw at it and is definitely a productivity booster!"

    "This is probably the worst possible laptop for school. I often warn people about buying "slim" laptops because they are a trap for people who are looking for something new and shiny. The problem with slim laptops is the fact that there isn't enough room for high powered components. Slim laptops like this do not have the power behind it to help any university student do their work."

    "You can for all extent and purposes find better laptops for a grand. Hands down, without a question and with little to no effort. Plus if you're looking for university laptops then I say.. go cheaper. You don't usually need a solid graphics card or a lot of RAM. Unless you're in specific classes!"

    "This Acer is great for the every day user. The 1TB hard drive is a great edition, and 4gb of DDR4 will have most every day tasks covered. It will struggle for more intensive tasks though because of the CPU. If you just need something to do basic work from, it's great for the price point. "

    "Avoid Chromebooks! If you're going to university, you'll want something compatible with most major programs. Chromebooks are very limited, and they only cost slightly less than Windows computers of comparable performance. I was constantly frustrated trying to find workarounds and compatible apps - avoid my mistake and just get a Windows computer or a Mac."
