Deals on laptops for middle-school students include Apple MacBook Airs, Chromebooks, and more

The good news is that these school-ready laptops don’t need to cost a lot of money. While some parents may prefer a higher-priced option such as a MacBook, many students will perform just as well with a Chromebook at less than a fifth of the price. And there are plenty of solid options in between, in case the school notebook will also be used for Roblox, Fortnite and other after-school activities.

Computers, once an optional part of childhood learning, have become all but mandatory in many schools. Whether it’s used to access lesson plans and homework, connect for online learning, or just research school projects, having the right computer for your kids can be essential their to success.

Take a look at some affordable laptop options for middle school students, all currently on sale for back to school.

Positioned somewhere between a full-functioning notebook and a tablet, a Chromebook is more than enough computer for most middle school students. Chromebooks offer access to popular apps such as Google Classroom, Chrome, YouTube, Docs and more. They’re not ideal for older students, who may need a more powerful machine for creating digital art or editing video, but a Chromebook will handle most school basics and online tasks without busting the family budget.

This particular 14-inch HD Chromebook from HP, currently $50 off during Walmart’s back-to-school sale, features 64GB of SSD storage, 4GB of RAM, an HD webcam and a quad-core Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor. Its battery, meanwhile, lasts a full 13 hours and 30 minutes — more than enough for even the toughest school day.

Another solid Chromebook option is the 11.6-inch Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3, currently rated 4.5 stars at Amazon. The touchscreen has a 360-degree hinge that converts it between laptop mode, tent mode, tablet mode and stand mode. It has 4GB of memory, 64GB of storage and a battery that lasts 10 hours on a charge.

Regularly $320, this convertible Lenovo laptop is currently $250 at Amazon.
