    The cheap and decent ones are probably best brought second hand.

    is the cheapest new one, and is fairly decent. certainly will fulfil all a student's needs.

    dont get a laptop because they are the top target for thieves, get a desktop because they are better and cheaper.

    unless you are moving it around a lot then there is just no point. I've needed to move mine once since i been here and that was for the winter holidays. the same money spent on a laptop could be spent on a much better desktop computer.

    i have friends here who have bought laptops and they haven't moved them once since they have been here.
