Heading to university can be an exciting but nerve wracking time, with plenty to consider before making the move… 

The moving out checklist can seem never ending - pots and pans, bedding, bathroom essentials - and something that might slip your mind amidst all the chaos is making sure you have the right technology to get you through your studies. 

Most university degrees will require you to have a decent, reliable laptop, whether that’s for note-taking in lectures, writing and submitting assignments, carrying out research or using specific software. 

But this doesn’t have to mean spending a fortune - there are plenty of incredible laptops out there that are student budget-friendly, including Lenovo Chromebooks. 

With John Lewis and TOTUM, you can get the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i for just £449.99 - an absolute steal considering all of its benefits (keep reading for the deets…)

What is a Chromebook?

If this is your first time purchasing a laptop for yourself, you might feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choice. It can be difficult to pinpoint which type of laptop is the right one for you, but generally speaking Chromebooks can be a great alternative to a standard laptop for students thanks to their lightweight design, with their portability being a huge advantage. 

Like a laptop, a Chromebook is a portable PC but has been designed in a way that makes it extremely thin and light. Other key differences include:

  • Chromebooks use Google's Chrome operating system, with the Chrome browser being the primary user interface, whereas laptops are typically controlled by a PC operating system such as Microsoft Windows, Mac or Linux

  • Chromebooks can typically start up faster than laptops thanks to the Chrome OS being designed to activate a minimal set of functions upon start up

  • Chromebooks are often lower in cost than laptops


Are Chromebooks good for students?

Chromebooks are considered a great alternative to a standard laptop for students thanks to their portability, affordability and simplicity.

As a student with a limited budget, you’re likely on the lookout for a trusty, user-friendly laptop with a good battery life, fast performance and that is easily transportable, which is why the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook is an excellent choice. 

What makes the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook ideal for students?

As mentioned, Chromebooks are appealing to students thanks to their lightweight design and how easy they are to navigate, but the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i has some extra perks that make it the perfect choice for those heading to university. 

With its Intel Core i3 processor, the Chromebook boots up in seconds, and with automatic updates you’ll get the latest software without being interrupted! This is a major win - we all know how frustrating it can be when you’re in the middle of something and suddenly your laptop takes it upon itself to restart to carry out updates…

But one of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i’s main benefits is its added built-in security, providing virus protection and secure support for multiple users. 

This keeps both you and your data protected, along with a built-in security chip which encrypts your most sensitive data and smart lock security to provide that extra peace of mind. 

As a TOTUM member, you can get your hands on the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook for £449.99 and you'll receive minecraft at no extra cost when you buy selected Chromebooks from John Lewis
