Having one of the best laptops for teachers is vital for anyone working in education. A laptop is handy not just for lesson planning and for correcting students' work at school, home or on the move, but often for actually delivering your class. And of course nowadays, more and more classes are being delivered remotely via online classrooms or services such as Zoom.

The best laptop for teaching will depend on which of these situations applies to you, but, generally, you'll want a device that's easy to carry around and that sports a webcam. Beyond that, which laptop you choose will largely depend on what software you need to run (scroll to the bottom for more advice on what to consider when choosing your laptop for teaching).
