If you're going to get a laptop for School don't get one with a discrete gpu in it.

 

 

Why not?

re no discrete gpu, this is good advise, as they cost more, typically are not required for any school work (if the student is doing photoshop or video manipulation they will more likely be required to do it on school owned high performance PCs in a managed lab), plus they reduce battery runtime, which is important.
