My school requirements are:
  • Operating System: 32-bit and 64-bit Versions of Windows 8, and Windows 10.
  • CPU Processor: 1.86Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo or greater RAM: highest recommended for the operating system or 4GB
  • Hard Drive: highest recommended for the operating system or 4GB of available space.
  • A working USB port is required (Newer devices may require an adaptor)
  • Screen Resolution must be 1024x768 or higher.
  • Adobe Reader (Version 9, 11, or DC) is required.
  • Wireless clients - 5 GHz (802.11a) radios minimum.

I thought about buying Macbook Air 11'' (cause it is light and easy to carry it around) but I am open to any suggestion.
I am a bit worried that I have never used Mac in my life so it might be harder to get use to the OS.
Is there any good and relatively cheap windows laptop do you guys can suggest?
I will mostly use laptop just for the school works..

Would you be okay with an 11 inch screen all day? I couldn't see myself working on anything below 13. Maybe try the Dell xps 13. What's your budget?
