I am going back to being a student starting this august.
First thing that struck me was that I will have to return my company provided laptop, a Lenovo T60p which has been my constant companion for the past 3.5 years. The laptop has served me well, but now it’s time to move on (Company policy requires me to return it 😦 )
I would have loved to continue with Lenovo, but I have heard that their support is a bit expensive. I am not sure if I will be able to afford it as a student.
So, that means, I’ll have to purchase a new laptop before I join college and I have less than 15 days to do that. My budget is 35k to 40k INR. I need a Linux compatible laptop which means that certain Graphics cards and certain wireless cards are not allowed.
College going junta or otherwise, any suggestions, advice regarding the do’s and dont’s that one should keep in mind while purchasing a new laptop, kindly advice. It’ll be much appreciated.
