Going to a med school? You might have already gotten the books you need for your studies, but still, something’s missing right? And that would be a “digital assistant”.

In the era of technology, you need a laptop/iPad for your studies. It surely will bring out your more productive side and make your learning more interesting and effective.

Manual note-making has become a very time-consuming and exhausting process. A laptop/iPad not only helps you in making effective notes but also saves you time and, track and organize your studies. You can easily search for details using keywords and then take notes and share them with fellow students. Notes taken with digital technology can be saved and stored in a form of backup so that they do not disappear -unlike paper notes which can either disappear or get damaged.

You will need a laptop to

  • Make presentations,
  • Watch videos related to your studies,
  • Read topics from the power point presentations of your professors,
  • Read research papers from the internet,
  • Download related documents about health programs, etc.,
  • Store all your data of MBBS from lectures to memories,
  • You may also join online courses for exam preparations,
  • Attend online lectures.
  • Having an Apple Pencil + iPad also allows you to swiftly highlight & take digital notes on PDF Versions of Medical Textbooks,

Things you need to keep in mind before buying a laptop/iPad

Battery life

Your laptop should have a good battery life so that you are not always obliged to carry your charger or be dependent on the charging cables.


In med school you need to store a lot of data and information, therefore you need at least 256 GB SSD storage.


RAM is another determinant of performance and higher RAM size translates into smoother multi-tasking and faster performance.

Laptops with 8GB RAM function pretty well.


 Intel and AMD are the commonly used processors however, Intel holds the lion’s share of the market.
