    The laptop in question. Personally I'd never buy a laptop that large and would instead go for a more pricey 2-in-1 or ultraportable.
    It depends what you want I spent £770 on my laptop

    I7-7600hq
    16gb ram
    Sandisk business class ssd 256GB 4K read speed
    960m gpu
    Plus an trusted platform module

    However this is to replace my desktop.

    My situation is similar. I use my laptop as a desktop through a docking station. Broadwell i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD and TPM, fingerprint scanner and other fancy stuff for around £600. Standard price being £1000. The main benefit is portability, it's pretty much a MB Air 13", just a little smaller.

    For uni, I'd strongly recommend a small and portable laptop. 15" is way too much to be carrying around with you. You also have the option of buying a dock and external monitor to use if you need a big screen.

    I'm living at home - I have an iMac at home. I'm thinking about taking an iPad to uni daily. Will this be enough? Would the iPad be a pain?

    Lenovos are bad. Don't cheap out on a laptop at Uni because it will be possibly the most important thing you over the next 3 years. Get a laptop with an SSD, no 2 in 1s. ASUS and Apple the best brands.

    My family has had a terrible time with laptops breaking in the past, my biggest fear, is it has a lower warranty and will break even faster than a brand new, but then you might luck out anyways. It's a gamble imo.
