New student orientation and registration is currently going on for millions of students at Colleges and Universities all over the country. That means new books, new school supplies and of course, new laptop computers. The top thing students look for in laptops is price, performance, and looks. Not necessarily in that order.

  Here are three laptops that make a good addition to student classroom accessories. All three laptops are advertised as 2016 new and feature the Intel Core i5 processor.  

First up, the 2016 NEW Edition Lenovo Ideapad.  The Ideapad is an excellent laptop that features an energy efficient LED backlight.  This high performer has a screen size of 15.6 which is the smallest of the laptops in this review. However, this laptop does have longer battery life than other two laptops. Ideapad measures 14.9 x 10.4 x 0.9 inches and weighs 5.1 pounds.

Next we have the 2016 Newest Asus X751LAV.  This laptop features the IceCool design that keeps the palm rest comfortable.  This laptop has the most ram in this group at 8GB the Lenovo and HP both only have 4GB. At 6.2 pounds, the X751LAV is the heaviest laptop in this group. The Asus laptop measures 16.3 x 1.2 x 10.7

The final laptop in this lineup is the 2016 Newest HP Pavilion 17. The Pavilion 17 is the lightest laptop of the bunch and features a Solid State Drive (SSD). This drive gives the Pavilion an edge in performance and boot-up time over the other the Lenovo Ideapad and the ASUS X751LAV. This laptop is the most expensive of the group and is also weighs the least at 3.4 pounds.
