Teenagers using a laptop

No longer simply a luxury, laptops have become a must-have tech item for teens. It helps them to stay connected with friends and family, provides them with a convenient location to store documents and files for any class projects, and makes online gaming or video viewing easier.

Jump to editor’s top picks

There are a number of things to consider when purchasing a laptop for teens:

Processor: If your teen will be doing any work with graphics or wants a laptop for gaming, you’ll want to consider upgrading the processor. Otherwise, most available processors are powerful enough to handle any standard applications a high school student would run.

RAM: If speed, such as for gaming, is an issue, then shopping around for models with upgraded RAM is essential. This will ensure your teen’s laptop doesn’t get slowed down at critical moments.

Audio/Video: A decent set of speakers, integrated microphone, and camera are must-haves for your teen’s laptop. This ensures they can stay connected with friends and family, and allows them to enjoy both movies and games with ease.

Storage: Unless your child requires large storage capabilities for school projects, most standard hard drives will cover their needs. Anywhere from 128GB-500GB is standard and will more than handle most needs. If additional storage is required, you can purchase an external hard drive that easily connects via USB for an affordable price.

Durability: If there’s a potential for bumps and drops, purchasing a laptop with integrated shock absorbers or the like will help to protect your investment. You can also purchase aftermarket accessories that help cut down on wear and tear, and any accidents that may happen. Carrying cases or protective sleeves are worth the small investment in order to protect your child’s laptop.

Size: Teens (especially those who are gaming) will appreciate a larger screen size. Models around 13 inches offer a good compromise between size and affordability. Be conscious of the weight of the laptop, so that your child isn’t lugging around a computer that’s too heavy for them to safely carry. Heavier laptops are also more likely to be damaged in case of falls or bumps. Look for models that weigh less than 5 pounds.

You can also choose from models that double as tablets or have touchscreen interface. Almost all of the models we chose to include in our list come with enough RAM and storage to power all your teen’s needs, and weigh less than 3 pounds, and provide all-day battery life.
