Every back-to-school period, promotions flourish in the computer department, especially on computers. The opportunity to afford a recent model at a lower price, provided you choose well. Small selection of good deals of the moment with some advice.

Back to school is traditionally a good time to buy and renew equipment. This is true for school supplies, but also for IT equipment, especially computers. Manufacturers and merchants have understood this, as shown by the many promotions that are flourishing at the moment on advertising leaflets as well as on online stores.

However, unlike the end-of-year celebrations, where it is mainly high-end configurations that are put forward, gifts oblige, the emphasis is above all on prices, which must remain reasonable to offer an accessible offer. families and students alike, faced with other costs. It is therefore in the entry-level and mid-range segment that we find the most models, and that we can make good deals.

What price for a computer in 2021?

The start of the 2021 school year stands out, however, for two reasons. First, the Covid-19 pandemic has hit the electronics industry hard in 2020, causing a widespread shortage of components – integrated circuits – and not only in computing since it is also affecting sectors such as the automotive industry. As a result, computer prices are not as low as they used to be, especially since demand has been very high with confinement and teleworking: it is more difficult today to find a PC under the 400 euro mark, and it is better to aim for between 500 and 600 euros to buy a correct model, capable of lasting several years. Then, the forthcoming arrival of Windows 11, the new Microsoft operating system, scheduled for the fall, casts doubt on the compatibility of some models. Only next-gen PCs will come standard with Windows 11 initially, with others having to wait until 2022 to be offered a free update. In principle, all current models should be able to benefit from it, and only old PCs – more than four years old – will not be able to upgrade to Windows 11. So don’t worry about models delivered with Windows 10. To find out more about For more information, see our how-to’s Choosing a new Windows 11 compatible PC and Checking a PC’s compatibility with Windows 11.

In general, we now see more portable PCs than fixed, so-called “desktop” PCs. It’s clear that classic tower CPUs are no longer popular and many prefer to use a computer that’s easy to carry around, especially when it comes to going to class, high school or college. The indisputable advantage of laptops is that they are complete: you have in a single device the central unit – the part that contains the processor, the RAM, the storage system and the interfaces -, the screen, the keyboard, the pointing device – the touchpad which can be assisted by a real mouse –, but also a webcam – essential for video chatting, as the lockdown has shown – a microphone and speakers.

Which computer to choose for back-to-school 2021?

While we still find modest processors (Intel Pentium and Celeron or AMD A and E series) in entry-level PCs, we now see significantly more efficient chips (Intel Core and AMD Ryzen) in models made accessible. Similarly, if we see some entry-level models with 4 GB of RAM, which is very fair, most computers today are equipped as standard with 8 GB, which is much more comfortable to run Windows 10 with multiple software. Ditto for storage, where the SSD – or its economical version, eMMC memory – is gradually replacing the classic hard disk (HDD). Remember that this storage system based on electronic components is much faster than the mechanical and magnetic hard disk. Better a PC equipped with a 256 GB SSD than a computer with only a hard disk, even of a higher capacity: it will be much more fluid in everyday life, with in particular an ignition in a few seconds. However, nothing prevents combining the two technologies: an SSD for the system and the applications, and a hard disk to store the data. But the SSDs in front of more accessible, as much to count from the outset on a computer equipped with a system of 512 GB or even 1 TB as standard, just to be quiet for several years.

The period being more conducive to studies than to video games, most “back to school” computers are content with an integrated graphics circuit (Intel or AMD), more than enough for normal use, and in particular for watching videos. videos. But with a little snooping, you can still find models equipped with decent graphics cards to play!

The components must not, however, overshadow essential criteria for comfort, especially in everyday use. Thus, more than its size – expressed by a diagonal in inches – it is the quality of the screen that counts: its definition, expressed in pixels, its viewing angles, its contrast, its brightness, its colorimetry… So many qualitative elements that can be assessed by eye, when possible, in the absence of serious tests. Ditto for the keyboard, whose typing must be precise and silent, without bouncing which causes typing errors. Besides, the presence of a numeric keypad on a laptop can be essential for some, while it is incidental for others. Or autonomy, which is crucial for nomads and irrelevant for those who leave their laptop plugged in all the time. On the other hand, the presence of numerous USB ports – in USB 3 or USB-C version – is always an asset. While the pre-installed software – the Microsoft Office suite or the trial versions of antivirus – do not provide any real added value to the extent that there are equivalents free like LibreOffice.

We have selected a few models here that we think are interesting for their price-performance ratio. Some will quickly disappear from the stalls, others not. In any case, they can serve as examples. Please note that some models are offered with configurations that vary slightly from one distributor to another, under different references. This is a well-known business practice that allows manufacturers to offer “exclusive” models at preferential prices to distributors without upsetting anyone. A way to confuse the issue, and avoid any direct comparison…

              This HP ultraportable PC perfectly illustrates what you can find at the lowest price, at less than 250 euros. Let’s be clear: it’s a minimalist entry-level computer that may suffice for a primary or middle school student, or very occasional use in a family setting, but no more. It has a very modest Intel Celeron processor, only 4 GB of Ram and 64 GB of eMMC storage, slower than a real SSD. And the definition of its 14-inch screen is limited to HD. Not a thunderbolt to play with, therefore, but a small computer at a tiny price to take your first steps.

But it still benefits from a decent screen (15-inch HD), USB 3 sockets, Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 and is thus well suited to the youngest or to occasional use, especially stay comfortable on the Internet.
