    he'll understand. A missing apostrophe can be a catastrophe. :-)

    Google makes good devices and I tend to agree.

    My smaller brother has a lenovo-parent from amazon, it costs only 220 dollar! Given that he is currently in college as well, i would def check out the lenovo-parent collection as well. He loves it, he wasn't ready to spend a fortune because it's not a game computer (which according to him is holy grail)..haha. wouldn't get a Chromebook, they look nice and are super portable but their functionality is one that is rather questionable.

    Why are some people recommending a Chromebook? I mean, i do not own one but judging from the reviews i have read...Chromebooks are not worth the hype. Or am i wrong?

    Thanks EVERYONE!
    I decided, finally, to purchase a windows lap top. He wasn't particular and I had an older copy of MS Office I installed on it, so he's good to go.
    He has a printer at home, but will need one for the dorm, I guess. I'll let some other family member foot the bill on that.

    Thanks again for all the helpful comments and suggestions.

    I'm not much good with computer info. But if you need a printer that saves you money...A) Don't get an Epson. It uses ink WAY too fast. -and- B) Do get an HP printer as it uses almost no ink at all.

    Now, I must admit that I'm a little biased here because there are certainly better image producing printers than HP; however, HP saves you when it comes to using ink. Epson gobbles it up quickly.

    Hope this helps.

    That sounds fair enough. I wish him all the best in his journey.

    Mark:
    Thanks for your input. If they came to me for advice, I would recommend HP because that's what I have and I'm content with its performance.

    Lynette:
    You're very kind and sweet. Thanks for the encouragement. He'll appreciate it.

Most assignments are done on paper and most programs run on any laptop, there's a few programs that do need a powerful computer but we have computer labs for that. He can get any laptop he wants as long as he is ok using computer labs a few times. I was going to suggest a Chromebook actually...but its up to you core i5 , core i3 doesn't matter, 8GB RAM is nice to have though.
    good one reply i really like this one thanks men

    dI have an HP ENVY X360 and I like it. Lighted keyboard is useful in low light situations, The only drawback is it has no disk drive so I bought an external one now it is complete.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
