A laptop provides some flexibility for students who study subjects with specialist software who may want to purchase and install a personal copy of the software for their use at home.

Students studying specialist subjects such as IT, Arts and/or Technology, upgrading the CPU, RAM or hard drive to a SSD may improve performance of more advanced software.
