Back to School Laptop Shopping Guide

Gaming, General, Hardware

Here at AVADirect Custom Computers we have a wide array of computers that can cater to the needs of just about any consumer. Luckily for all of who are about wrap up our summers and head back to school, we have stocked our notebooks with plenty of unique features that will help you get through any all-nighter.

Affordable Laptops

We may be an elite custom computer company, but we understand more than anyone what it’s like to be on a college budget. This is why we offer our Ascendant N240JU 14” Laptop for as low of a price as $719 or $63 a month. It comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor paired with onboard graphics for optimal performance on any task that you receive. You will have access to a VGA webcam and a pre-installed windows 10 home operating system able to tackle any of your basic needs. Don’t fool yourself thinking this isn’t an elite notebook though, with all of these custom components you can still multitask at the highest levels.

High Performance Laptops

Just because you’re a college student doesn’t mean you don’t need high performance from your laptop. If you’re in an architecture, engineering or design program. Whether you’re running MATLAB, Solidworks, Creo, AutoCAD, or the Adobe Creative Suite, you’ll need powerful computing not only from the CPU but also from the graphics card. Workstation laptops feature high powered processors and professional graphics cards for high intensity rendering and research tasks. At AVADirect we have many True Custom workstation laptops for you to choose from, starting at $1,469 or $129 a month. You’ll be able to handle serious engineering, architectural, media or research tasks in the field, or wherever you are.

Gaming Laptops

In the past two years we have come out with a line of computers meant specifically for gamers. The Avant series is packed full of industry leading features that can take you through the most heated gaming adventures in a night. If you are looking to combine a heavy amount of coursework along with a heavy amount of leisurely activities. An Avant notebook can be configured with up to a Skylake 6th generation Intel Core I7-6700 Processor and a VR Ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. Take virtual reality back to your dorm room and unwind after a long day of lectures. Pair it with any of our partnered accessories such as Omni or Sixense and make sure you are the talk of your hall. Make your dorm room a gaming sanctuary with all of Avant’s industry leading components and customizable parts.


Your notebook is as important as any other item you will use throughout your years in school. Some of you may just need one to get the job done, help you pass your classes, and sustain a solid enough battery life to outlast the heavy load of coursework during finals week. Some of you may be looking for a high performance notebook that can host more applications at the fastest frame rates the market will allow you to see, and others want to bring their favorite games and accessories into the comfort of their dorm rooms. All and all, AVADirect is here to help you make the move back to school this fall with the best notebooks you can buy.

I'm a marketing professional who loves to get down to the geeky details. When I'm not studying the latest components or industry news, I can be found biking, hiking or gaming.
