Student Laptops

So as of next year I'll have two kids in high school. The school cromebooks they have are driving them (and me) up the walls. School IT is essentially useless.
So... here I am curious to see if anyone had any good recommendations for laptops that are good for students?
My daughter has been getting a little more into coding and digital art as well.
But that isn't a primary feature I'm looking for right now since I have my desktop if she really needs to do that sort of work for the time being.

  • For digital art and coding, I would probably go with a Lenovo Yoga 7i. 

    For a cheap laptop that is mainly for online classes and writing papers, I would go with an Ideapad Slim 3i Chromebook Plus. It's currently on sale on Lenovo for $370.

  • those look like great recommendations! Thanks! I'll look into them.

    The yoga looks pretty nice honestly!  But it might be a bit much to do both at that level at this point but we'll see once taxes come through.

    It might be wroth going for the Ideapad side to get them going for a while.
