We choose a powerful laptop for school, programs and games start at the left rear


The end of the holidays means that schoolchildren are once again preparing to sit down at their desks for more or less fun subjects. Times have advanced and a laptop at the studio is practically a necessity. Especially if your field is related to computers.

When you think of a powerful laptop, most people probably think of a gaming laptop. It is definitely not a coincidence, as games and professional programs often use the graphics card or the processor in particular. With GeForce RTX graphics that support Ray Tracing and DLSS, you will have a lot of fun while studying, but especially with games. High-quality lighting and sophisticated light reflections or image enhancement through artificial intelligence. All these elements are handled by GeForce RTX graphics cards with an overview and they can be used in games and programs for schools.

Just before the end of the holidays, we will therefore take a look at choosing a school laptop, which by pure chance in most cases belongs to the category of gaming machines. First of all, you need to choose a laptop according to the field and type of study. High school and high school students probably won’t be as demanding on performance as university students focusing on, say, 3D graphics. At secondary school, we will most often encounter less demanding applications, for example for photo editing or video editing. Here we can therefore choose, for example, according to the display and endurance.

You can choose between Full HD, QHD and 4K resolution for the display. The first variant is already sufficient for most work, QHD can then be considered a better standard. The version with a 4K panel should be chosen only by those interested in the most detailed image, who do not care so much about power and battery. Generating an image for so many pixels is demanding on several components. Another important element is color coverage. Here it is worth comparing between individual models, with the most important color spaces being sRGB, Adobe RGB and DCI-P3. The more percentages, the better, but also pay attention to the calibration of the panel and the deviation from real colors.

Video editors will certainly not make a mistake with a laptop with a larger, well-calibrated display. Beginner streamers will find the Nvidia NVENC encoder and program useful Nvidia Broadcast. Thanks to it, you can take your stream production to a whole new level with the push of a few buttons.

For powerful laptops, the focus is of course the graphics card. The base in this regard is the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, with the RTX 3060 offering a bit more performance if you’re willing to pay extra. This saves time, for example, when exporting or rendering.

Students of programming and 3D design will definitely use more performance and can reach for more powerful models of GeForce RTX graphics. However, pay attention to the TDP, which determines how much electricity the card can claim. Performance also depends on this. The amount of RAM is also important here, consider 16 GB as a necessary basis. Then compare the specifications with the requirements of the programs you intend to use.

In general, better graphics equals more performance and less time at work. The graph below shows the differences between a Macbook and a laptop with integrated graphics. It takes up to tens of minutes, and when the laptop is loaded, the machine is virtually unusable for any other work.

If you are serious about graphics, definitely go for machines certified as Nvidia Studio. These are models with a special version of drivers and support for a number of applications from different fields. Whether it is rendering, editing, graphic design or visualization, such machines will provide you with a professional background. Optimization plays an important role here, and Nvidia has made sure that you will have no problem running the program from a number of companies. We can mention Autodesk, Blender, Cinema 4d, Adobe, Unreal Engine or even Unity.

With all these programs, you save time through powerful and optimized hardware. You can then invest this in studying or relaxing. You definitely don’t want to get angry at a stuck render a few hours before submission.

The choice of a specific model is then up to everyone. The most affordable models with GeForce RTX 6050 or 3050 Ti start around 20 thousand crowns. It is an attractive choice for a budget of up to 30,000 ASUS TUF Dash F15 with a more powerful GeForce RTX 3060. You can already get it for a price of around 34,000 MSI Katana GF66 in configuration with GeForce RTX 3070 with 8 GB RAM for really passionate gamers or creative individuals.

The selection can be made easier through the guide from CZC.cz. Of course, you can also go for certified laptops Nvidia Studio. In both cases, however, also take into account the length of the study. Changing the machine in the middle of the semester is not ideal, so it is recommended to make a bigger investment that will pay off in the future. Later, you will need more performance for more demanding programs and, of course, games. So don’t be afraid to take a more powerful model, although you won’t use it to its full extent today.
