That should give you more than enough time to be productive and entertained.

The Asus VivoBook  S410 is a competent laptop that runs with a Windows 10 Operating System while flaunting a 1,920 x 1,080 screen resolution. This is a solid bet for any college student looking to strike the balance between features and price. Amazon just puts the cherry on top by shaving $100 off its $799 price tag.
