    Don’t trust these reviewer’s if you want a smooth laptop always go for Mac

  2. Multifandom K-Pop Stan on November 22, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    get a ASUS VivoBook S15 S532FL it’s $800 yeah kinda expensive but it’s better than an apple product compared to the macbook pro 13 inch

    Disliked. You didn’t go over the specs that matter the most, such as the actual processors themselves. Saying it’s “quad core” doesn’t mean anything. The Galaxy S3 or S4 had a quad core chip as well. Secondly, you’ve overestimated college students’ budgets. $500-600 is a good range, these are all way too expensive for school.

    I don’t think all students have 1000 bucks to buy a these machines.
    Next time please do a budget list as well or at least put a budget laptop in the vid

  5. Tiger Barua on November 22, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    people need to stop coming after apple users, im a windows user but yall dont have to judge a person on buying a macbook. It’s all personal preference, if they wanna spend that guap then let em be

  6. TEMPOLIFE L on November 22, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    who cares about the webcams

  7. Frischeparadies on November 22, 2019 at 9:49 pm

    One thing is for sure: if you are stupid enough to buy surface family, then nobody can help you.

  8. mi Lpov on November 22, 2019 at 9:49 pm

    I have 20$

  9. Feed VC on November 22, 2019 at 9:50 pm

  10. Yaghi Ziad on November 22, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    step 1: learn pc’s specs
    edit: if you dont want to learn specs, buy a gaming laptop

  11. Adam s on November 22, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    bold of you to assume I’m a student

  12. Lubna Naaz on November 22, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Now y’all can’t see how I got all these likes

  13. Abew Studio on November 22, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Get a decent CPU.

    Use your friend’s laptop during any presentation.

  14. Jay Richards on November 22, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    Should be titled: "Best Student laptops for the 1%"

  15. Italo Maia on November 22, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    Too expensive.

  16. Oliver Daniell on November 22, 2019 at 10:00 pm

  17. zobots diys on November 22, 2019 at 10:01 pm

  18. Chriz 15 on November 22, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    I just need a laptop that is less than $1000, portable, where i can code, and play minecraft.

  19. Walking Memes on November 22, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Why would anyone want a heavy, expensive gaming laptop to go to school when it only has like 4 hours of battery life?

    And how would anyone would be able to afford the laptops in the video, and most of the laptops don’t even have that great ports. This boi clearly hasn’t gone to school before.

  20. Yellow Red on November 22, 2019 at 10:04 pm

    get surface laptop 1, the price on amazon is low as hec.

  21. FAROUK SADEK on November 22, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    I think he forgot that the concept was for STUDENTS

  22. CarbonSlice on November 22, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Alternative recommendations:
    For people who want to look professional: Thinkbooks
    For light gamers and people looking for an Apple alternative: Razer Blade Stealth
    For heavier gamers: one of the ones above along with a Thunderbolt 3 external GPU
    For people who should really work on getting more dispensable income: public computers until you have the credit to take a loan or finance out one mentioned before.

  23. Žan Stermecki on November 22, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    But we are students. We are broke.

  24. Emily Kiser on November 22, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    People are so cranky about how it’s so expensive… I USE MY LAPTOP FOR EVERYTHING. My textbooks, notes, assignments — EVERYTHING that I do for my masters degree is on my laptop. If you spend 1100 on a laptop (what I spent for my lenovo yoga 920) and you actually use it, its money well spent. No, I don’t have money either. I had to open up a credit card to get it. My fiancee is in medical school, he has a surface and we spent about the same on it. I don’t know what either of us would do without our computers. We tried smaller, cheaper. It did not work out at all because over the course of 4 years, we’d be buying a new computer every year for the both of us and shell out around 300 each. Over the course of an undergrad degree, that’s more than what our computers cost. IT’S EXPENSIVE BUT IT’S WORTH IT.

    My broke ass bought an acer aspire E15 for about $300 upgraded my ram and it’s good for university

  26. Aayush Singla on November 22, 2019 at 10:11 pm

  27. Suicidal_ Thoughts on November 22, 2019 at 10:12 pm

  28. Mad Engineer on November 22, 2019 at 10:17 pm

  29. Duc Do on November 22, 2019 at 10:17 pm

  30. Jonathan on November 22, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    why do people care about the fact that their laptop cost 200$ too much when they have 60k dept at the end of their terms…

  31. josue castro on November 22, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Bro wtf I don’t have this type of money 😭 please change the title of your video

  32. Marvel is better Than DC on November 22, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Hey guys. I go to school two days a week and work the other 3. Weekend are my days off and that’s how I got my MacBook. Tbh kind of a bad buy but the point is I got the damn thing without being rich. There’s this thing called effort.

  33. Cold Truth on November 22, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    The title should be corrected to for students in Beverly Hills

  34. Daniel Hernandez on November 22, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    Anyone else thinking of getting a laptop with the financial aid u get?

  35. Leopold Carlton on November 22, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    What student can afford these? Personally i think people would rather be able to eat then buy a 2k laptop, that’s instant ramen money.

  36. Dennis Taranchuk on November 22, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    Lmao damn you guys must think college students are made of money

  37. Mars _ on November 22, 2019 at 10:26 pm

  38. A bunny that will chew on your cables on November 22, 2019 at 10:27 pm

    When so called "reviewers" think a student can afford premium laptops… ffs most of us live on pot noodles…

  39. Sneazy_ 102 on November 22, 2019 at 10:27 pm
