I'm a former MBP owner who switched to a Surface Book 2 about a year ago and couldn't be happier, it meets all your requirements except LTE support.

There's nowhere any suggestions for laptop for students not on a budget.

Even LTT's video for the best laptops for students is kind of a budget laptop showdown.

Please help me out here.

I'm looking for a good slim and lite .

 

NOT NECESSARY BUT GOOD TO HAVE

  1. Touch Screen
  2. Stylus support
  3. Detachable screen
  4. SSD
  5. LTE support

ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED

  1. 8GB plus of RAM
  2. 512GB storage
  3. A laptop that stands up properly with no flimsy stands
  4. Minumum 8 hours of battery life
  5. USB TYPE A ports
  6. HeadphoneJack
  7. Bluetooth Headphone compatibilty

Basically a laptop for a normal college student who doesn't game or anything. Just to get assignments done and stream movies and stuff when not completing assignments and college stuff.

How good is the battery life.

What is your typical usage and how long does it last for you?

I can go two full work days using the iGPU for general office stuff.
