Very Best Student Laptop Offers For The New Uni Year | TOTUM
Ben Hayward June 29th

With most universities stating they’ll be continuing to offer a mixture of in-person and online learning for the 2021-22 academic year, a decent laptop is going to be an absolute must-have for the majority of students.

Yep, a major consideration for starting or returning to uni this autumn is that your laptop is up to scratch as restricted access to university resources is likely to mean an increased reliance on your own computer.

To be honest, for the non-techies among us it can seem pretty daunting to choose a new laptop, with all the different brands, models and specs out there it’s difficult to know where to start!


But here at TOTUM we’ve tried to make things a little easier and have picked out some of the very best offers to help you get student discount on the laptop you need.

Whether you’re a confirmed Mac user after an upgrade, are looking for a lightweight companion for easy travel or just need something cheap and cheerful to see you through, we’ve got the deal for you!
