It is an amazing 15.5inch, high-performance touchscreen device, operating on a core i5 processor and 1TB storage suitable for a heavy workload. Its 5-hour battery lifespan also makes it suitable in case of power shortage. Students will be pleased with its pace of operation with its 8GB RAM and it can serve as a leisure device storing enough movies or games. As we know, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Other specifications include; Windows 10 OS, Bluetooth, Wireless, USB3.0 and Intel HD Graphics all at an affordable price of ₦130,000 on Laptop6.com.
HP Pavilion 15z Touch
This offers the same experience as the ‘Jaguar’ model except that it carries an AMD dual-core processor (which is twice as fast as a single processor) and an internal memory of 500GB. It costs ₦120,000. Compromising double storage strength and processing speed for just ₦10,000 might not be worth it, but if you are not heavy on workload it shouldn’t be an issue. An additional benefit, however, will be its dual speaker combo, providing extra-clear sound.
Dell Inspiron i3168
The 11-inch Intel Pentium processor bearing laptop provides an amazing MaxxAudio Pro technology and a little over 5-hour battery life as an added advantage. For students who are big on class and style, the 2-in-1 features as a touchscreen laptop and a convertible stand-alone tab for portability is a smash hit. Other specifications include; Windows 10 OS, 4GB RAM, LED key backlight, Bluetooth, USB3.0 and Intel HD Graphics all at an affordable price of ₦115,000 on Jumia.com
Lenovo Ideapad 320
Beyond its growing fame, the Lenovo Ideapad 320 draws people to itself with its very competitive price compared to its brilliant features. The 15.6inch screen is built on a Core i3 processor, an amazing 1TB internal storage capacity topped with 5-hour battery life for just ₦100, 000 in online shops. Other specifications include Windows 10 OS, RAM: 4GB, Bluetooth, WiFi, USB3.0 and Intel HD Graphics.

HP Stream N3060
This is the most affordable of all the 5 laptops listed here and it is a mini laptop for those who are big on portability, especially the female folks who would love to slot the machine into their bags. It operates on an Intel Celeron-dual-core processor. Its battery life of five hours is great though its internal storage is a mere 32GB. If it is strictly for academic purposes and there is a possibility of using an external storage accessory, then you can be fine. Other specifications include Windows 10 OS, RAM: 4GB, Bluetooth, WiFi, USB3.0 and Intel HD Graphics for just ₦70, 000 on Konga.com.
