Hello all.

 

I'm looking for a recommendation for a laptop for my daughter who will be doing her Bachelor's in Communications at Unversity of Sherbrooke, Quebec.

 

Thanks

That really depends

 

- whats your budget

- what size screen does she want

- does she want it light so its easy to carry back and forth from school

- will it be all for school work or will there be some ocassional gaming

I would recommend that you look at the specific courses in the program and see if they require any special software.

Hi @nelsoncolt , welcome to the Best Buy Community Plug-in forum Smiley Happy

Both @Drax86 and @SonicBoom make valid points in selecting an appropriate laptop.

I would add that consulting with a Connected Solutions associate at a Best Buy store, will be a great idea, as these same questions will be asked.  You may also want to inquire about "open box"  laptops, to save money.

I would also suggest that you consider including a Geek Squad Protection, Total Protection Plan for the laptop, as this will include many attributes, including proper set-up of the laptop, removal of adware, clean installation of Office components such as Excel or Word or other programs etc.., and even accidental damage coverage among other attributes.
