Laptop is an essential part of your college work, and it will not be wrong to say that laptop has taken the front seat. In addition, today, most of the college and universities require that each of their students must own laptop for academic purpose. Finding the best laptops for college students is not an easy errand as it depends on the subject that you have opted and so on.

For Instance, if a student is doing graduation in computer science, then he would require laptop   of higher configuration and specification in comparison with the one who is studying English literature. Although it is certainly tricky to gauge needs of the students thus to help you here we bring you some leading brands and their specification so that you can purchase the best one that suffice the need and your budget too. Without any delay, let us quickly peep and see different laptops that are best for the student.

However, before we embark on the different laptops for college students, it is essential to be well aware of the prerequisite and specification that your computer must possess. Here is list of top three laptops that we have picked for you.

  • Samsung Note book 7spin: well as per the review, this laptop is known for its performance and portability. This latest laptop is equipped with best technology and above all, it is loaded with features that college pupils will love. This is two – in one device with a touch screen that can be used as normal laptop and like a tablet. It has Intel core I7 sky lake processor, it has RAM of 8, or 16 GB, which can be easily upgraded if, need arise in future. It has all the ports for connectivity. Battery backup is also great. Overall, it is a perfect laptop for the students with small budget.

The Dell XPS 13 can easily keep up with heavy workload be it programming software Eclipse and Android studio or Autodesk, 3DS max. The Price is on the higher side but looking at the market laptop of this configuration are highly priced so it is a fair deal if you bring home XP 13.

James Cameron Goes Vegan

“By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world”. James-Cameron-Goes-Vegan1

James Cameron received National Geographic’s “Explorer of the Year” award for his successful solo dive last year to the deepest point of the Pacific  Ocean. James used the organization’s  125th-anniversary gala to share
gmailcom his new-found solution to saving the  Earth.“I’ve had an epiphany recently,” Cameron told the audience.  “I want  to challenge all of you as people of deep conscience, people who are  environment stewards of the earth and oceans. . . . By changing what you eat, you will change the entire  contract between the human species and the natural world. Cameron said he went vegan a year ago and urged everyone in the cameronveganroom to do the  same. “I felt like I was waking up from a long sleepwalk,” he said. “I  believe we are all sleepwalking off a cliff if we don’t do this.” The Oscar-winning director with a fortune of $700 million or so has  been a vocal supporter and has put his money where his mouth is for  various green causes.

People, he said, are always asking him what they can do to make a difference for the  planet. He says he used to give the standard answers: — electric cars,  solar panels — but now believes going vegan is, by far, the most  important thing anyone can do. Watch him speak on Youtube.
