Students are more mobile and more connected than ever. Learning digitally has never been easier.
Some schools even require students to own a laptop these days. Most students, high schools or head off to college these days need thier own laptops. Although a personal computer may not be absolutely necessary since most colleges have computer labs for student use, it is definitely a convenience to have your own computer unit.
Tablets and laptop for school should be optimized for the work, not the play. But as they said, work hard, play hard, schoolwork made fun with laptops!
Smaller, lighter models are likely a better fit living on campus. Keeping your computer with you in class and at home means all of your notes and assignments are in one place.
Now, let’s look at a selection of laptops suited for your lifestyle. Of course, not everyone can afford to buy high-end laptops for school.
Portability, efficiency, and versatility are valued factors when it comes to notebooks. For students who regularly deal with dynamic academic activities, having a gadget built-in with these features can help set the groundwork to a successful school year.
“Tablets and laptops are now considered necessities for students since majority of their requirements are anchored online. For the youth, especially, having an efficient device just doesn’t cut it anymore. They need something that can complement their lifestyle as well,” says Manuel Wong, General Manager of Acer Philippines.
He continues, “Nowadays, having advanced features is no longer just the benchmark in measuring a gadget’s worth. You have to think of what the users need to really make a difference.”
Recognizing the exceptional needs of students, Taiwanese brand and leading Philippine notebook manufacturer Acer came up with the Aspire Switch 10 E. The model, which is a modified version of the earlier Switch 10, hits the sweet spot between a tablet and a laptop. It has versatility, mobility, and efficiency all rolled in a model designed for both work and play.
Designed for students
The Aspire Switch 10 E comes with the new Acer Snap Hinge ™2 which makes it easy to snap the keyboard on or off with a simple push or pull. Students can easily use it in its tablet form for watching videos and snap it back to its notebook mode for typing tasks. The Switch 10 E can be switched to a total of four modes: notebook, tablet, tent, and display.
In terms of performance, this versatile laptop’s Intel quad-core processor gives it ample power to accommodate every student’s computing requirements. Switch between work and fun with its 12 hour battery life and enjoy usability with its Windows 8.1 software and pre-installed Microsoft Office programs.
The Aspire Switch 10 E’s audio and visual components are even geared towards the demands of schoolwork. With its Acer VisionCare™ and Acer BluelightShield™ features, the users’ eyes are protected from stress-causing blue light during prolonged periods of staring at the screen. The 10 E also promises clear images with its IPS technology HD screen (made durable by ultra-tough Gorilla™ Glass) and great sound performance with its dual speakers.
Lastly, the Aspire Swich 10 E comes with a data protection component for assured information security. The Acer SwitchLock ™ secures HDD data of the user and only allows access to it once the tablet is snapped back with the keyboard.
Work and Play
Acer’s commitment to provide for the specific needs of different users goes beyond just performance. Understanding that self-expression is also important for the youth, the Aspire Switch 10 E is made available in a range of trendy colors that complement its dynamic shape.
Teens can choose from a variety of colors like blue, purple, white, black, pink and magenta to suit their taste and style. Add this to the textile-pattern texturing of the cover and you have one stylish device that can keep up with the demands of student life.
Acer’s models are inspired by its #PullitOff! Campaign, an advocacy which calls out to students to face common school challenges like bullying with confidence. Other products included in the line-up of the campaign are the Acer Aspire Switch 11 and Acer Aspire Switch 12.
Wong closes, “Technology plays a large role not only in our professional careers but our social lives as well. Students have varied interests and activities. If you can find a gadget that can help improve the way you live in both aspects, then you know you’ve found a good partner.”
Students, make sure your tablets and laptop will be able to keep up with your busy schedule.
