What kind of computer is the most reliable and affordable to purchase and take to college?

As an upcoming architecture student who will be running a lot of software, I was wondering what the best computer (on a budget of course) is? I would like this computer to last through college as well as contain plenty of storage! Thanks! #architecture #tech #computer

Hello,

Your field of study is going to require looking at complex drawings which require good core system resources as well a good graphics processor. My advice would be: budget as much money as you can reasonably afford, and then double it. You don't want to be crippled by a computer that doesn't have the adequate resources for you to excel in your studies. Going cheap only pays off in the near term. There is no financial gain to be had if you are waiting extra seconds and minutes hundreds of times per day because your computer cant keep up with you.

I assume by computer you mean a laptop. I personally find Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 series (especially 13 inches) is really good. They sell for like 600$ without discount. you can use it as a laptop and as a tablet. If you are planning to buy one , then look for back to school discounts on dell and best buy website.
