    I have a netbook and a desktop but I wondered if this would be ok for uni. They have a combined hard drive space of 363GB so I was thinking I need a good external hard drive. My netbook is around 5 years old running XP with 1.5GB RAM and my desktop is almost 2 years old with windows 7 and 3GB RAM. I've also been advised that I need a laptop for uni so I'm not sure what I should do. Is this good enough? It's difficult to decide without first hand experience.
    Any help appreciated

    As long as you're ok with getting your desktop to uni you should be fine. A lot of my friends just have a laptop. But not many of them take it to lectures. A few do but they usually get distracted and sit on facebook. It's up to yourself really.

    Depends on your course. If your doing Engineering then a desktop is better because it will be able to run faster due to the number of different programs you will have to download
    If your doing anything else a laptop is fine.
