Lenovo Flex 14

As we’ve already mentioned, there’s no avoiding the fact that college can be a bit expensive, which is why the Lenovo Flex 14 is an excellent choice for students.

It’s both affordable and has a beautiful design, and it even has a powerful Intel Pentium 4415U – Intel Core i5-8250U processor capable of handling pretty much anything from writing and editing paper, through to gaming when you’re all caught up on your homework.
