Best Microsoft Laptop Computers for Online Classes

  • Jack Collins

We’ve covered the rise of eLearning before in previous posts. It certainly seems like online learning is here to stay. But to get the most out of it, you’re going to need the right laptop for the job. We’re going to continue our series on the best laptop computers for online classes in this post, this time by looking at the offerings from the pros at Microsoft.

The Best Windows Laptop Computers for Online Classes

When it comes to laptop computers for online classes, you’re going to want to stick with one of two Microsoft models. Both the Surface and the Surface Pro give a student everything they need to excel in their e-learning curriculum.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2

If you’re looking for the best all-around Microsoft laptop computer for your online classes, the Surface Laptop Go 2 is definitely a contender. It’s sort of like if a tablet and a laptop had a baby. The 3:2 aspect ratio of its 12.4-inch screen is a definite selling point, allowing you to fit more work onto your screen at a time. Its 12-hour battery life, along with its 2.5-pound weight, makes it easy to join your online classes anywhere you have a WiFi signal. Wrap that all into a package that costs less than $600, and you have a computer that’s also accessible to many students.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

The Microsoft Surface is an interesting beast. While it is, at its core, a tablet, it can function flawlessly as a laptop, too. Its hardware is a little more powerful than the Surface Laptop Go, with a full 1080 webcam and a 13-inch display. Its tablet-ness also makes it perfect for taking notes while you’re attending an online class. However, it’s not perfect. If you want a keyboard, you’ll have to buy it separately. And that can be a tough sell for cash-strapped students since the Surface Pro 8 can clock in at about $700. Still, if you can afford it, the Surface Pro 8 is a killer machine that you’ll be able to use for years to come.
