  • To be completely honest, only Macbooks are good for college students in 2014 whether it be Pro or Air since almost all colleges applications are built for Mac as well now. And if we talk about Windows laptops I’ve always hated them due to their bugs and lack of drivers. However, if someone is based outside of US then their college might require a laptop with windows OS so overall, this is a good list with amazing and latest laptops.
