Laptop for College

AlterTheEnding 26 10 August 7, 2016 at 10:10 AM
I need a laptop for school as it is a requirement of the program I am taking. however, I have always been a desktop person so I don't know much about laptops or where to find good deals on them.

first of all, are there any great student deals out there currently? I remember seeing commercials and such for some but I don't remember what stores or manufacturers.

aside from that, what laptops would you guys recommend and what are the best deals you know that are out there?

the new Microsoft Surface and similarly designed iPad model look extremely interesting and convenient being able to switch between laptop and tablet with the Nifty keyboard and screen that allows you to write on it. are those any good or is the hardware severely lacking compared to the price tag? I would like a decent laptop with strong specs that can handle all of my school work and maybe even some gaming without struggling.
