|I’m going to be a college student in the fall so I need a laptop that I can do schoolwork, play games, listen to and watch videos/movies on, and surf the internet. Ultra-portability and a price point towards the lower to middle range of my budget would be very helpful as well. In addition I’d need a laptop with at least one USB 3.0/3.1 ports, preferably more. I can only seem to find ones with USB-C’s (I don’t mind if the laptop has one in addition to the 3.0 ports). Thank you in advance for all of your help!|

Our Laptop Recommendation
If I had to go back to college and had your criteria, I would not hesitate a second and go with the Asus ZenBook UX303UB. It’s a seriously powerful laptop with its i7 processor, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD. It also comes with a NVIDIA GT940M graphic card to play games. All that in an ultra-portable Quad HD 13.3″ laptop that weighs only 3.2 lbs. And it has 3 USB 3.0 ports. It’s at the bottom of your price at around $1200… You’ll hardly find better value and a more fitting laptop for college.
Another good option would be the Microsoft Surface Book. It’s a detachable 13″ laptop with an awesome screen. There are many versions but the one at around $1500 comes with an i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a NVIDIA graphic card. It also has 2 USB 3.0 ports.
I hope that helps and I would appreciate if you could like our Facebook page and/or Google.+ page.
And tell me which one you chose, I’m interested!
Don’t hesitate if you have any other question,
