It’s hard to believe, but back-to-school season is upon us. And what better way to kick off the new school year than with a faster, smarter 2-in-1 laptop? Online retailer AO has parents and students covered with a host of top Back-to-School tech including super-fast Chromebooks. Better yet, you can grab at least £100 guaranteed cashback when you buy a new laptop and trade in your old working one*. Tempted? Here’s a couple of great options…

Its Chrome operating system is as easy to use as any smartphone, and provides access to a raft of popular Google apps – from word processing with Docs to video chatting with Hangouts – in addition to Microsoft Office and Skype. Indeed, most classrooms are already switching to Chromebooks, so the Chrome OS will feel instantly familiar to most students.

Waiting for a laptop to fire up is nobody’s idea of fun, but Chromebooks are super-fast. They boot in seconds thanks to the cloud-based nature of Chrome OS. They also offer good built-in security, so you shouldn’t ever find yourself plagued by unwanted pop-ups or annoying viruses.

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Book Pro 360, finished in stylish Mystic Blue, is another great Back-to-School buy. It’s an Intel Evo-certified laptop, which means it has been tested to ensure that it meets a high standard. Evo machines must include have at least 8GB of RAM and more than 256GB of SSD storage, as well as modern connectivity options such as WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt 4. They must also offer biometric authentication. 

This device is lightweight enough to carry around all day and doubles as both a tablet and laptop. It’s a more premium affair, hence you get a vivid 13.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen that’ll show off your work in splendid detail. Prefer writing with a pen to tapping on a keyboard? This device offers the best of both worlds as it comes supplied with an S Pen stylus for scribbling notes in class.

You shouldn’t have to go hunting for a mains power socket too often, either. The Galaxy Book Pro 360 offers plenty of graphical firepower and is good to go for over 13 hours at a time. That’s thanks in part to the Intel Core i5 processor, which delivers a rare combination of zippy speeds and epic battery life. 

Want an ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight convertible laptop with premium features? The Galaxy Book Pro 360 could be just the ticket. Head over to AO now to shop Intel Computing
