In 2017, every college student needs to own a laptop, even if they also have a powerful desktop PC at home. Forum user Modern_Mo is looking for a 15-inch college laptop that he or she can carry to school and use when their $2,200 home desktop isn’t available. Modern_Mo needs the laptop get at least 4 hours of battery life, have fast Wi-Fi connections and be able to play “small level” games such as Unturned, an undemanding zombie game.
The good news is that it’s easy to find a 15-inch laptop which meets these requirements. The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is probably the best choice. This gaming-centric laptop currently starts at $749 with a 1080p screen, Intel Core i5-7300HQ quad-core CPU, discrete Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. We’d definitely spend the extra $50 to get a model with a 256GB SSD and Nvidia GTX 1050Ti graphics. There’s also a brand new version of the Inspiron 15 7000 that has a better screen and starts at $999, more than Modern_Mo’s budget.
