Make back to school easier with Windows 11 laptops

It’s hard to believe summer is almost over, but for some, the school year has already begun.

PCs are important resources for students. If you’re still looking for the right one, you can find many choices with Microsoft’s partners. These laptops come with Windows 11, making every task easier, helping pupils from kindergarten to grad school.

Right out of the box, they’re easy to set up, with a clean design that puts the taskbar front and center. There, you’ll find handy features such as an AI-powered Bing in the Windows search box and Windows Studio Effects with AI-enhanced video call enhancements. Multi-taskers will also appreciate snap layouts with touch controls, voice access and built-in creator tools. But what if your work/study style is concentrating on one thing at a time? No problem, Focus Sessions are a great way to tune out distractions.

And when students aren’t studying or working on their next project, these laptops can also be their go-to for downtime entertainment. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, there are even more choices for play.

Parents can rest easier knowing about the many privacy and safety features that come with Windows 11, such as the Microsoft Defender app, enhanced phishing detection and protection, and the security built into Microsoft Edge.

Here are some PCs we’ve picked out to help you as you shop for the students in your life:
