If you do have a laptop - nothing. save it for now.
Just keep asking yourself the same question:
Do I have enough money to live a good life (whilst at uni):
Answer - yes. Keep it saved.
Answer - No. Use it to help out your student life.
Repeat until circumstances change or a big purhase comes up that you actually need..

If you end up going 3+ times a week, then you can easily spend £150/200 a month on going out alone and that's not including your hangover food, smokes if you smoke etc. So that at the very least I'd recommend saving some of the £1000 for nights out. Even if you don't go out now, you will likely find yourself going loads. Also prepare for the debriefings. That is essentially why you go out.
Let's assume you will go out less, let's say once a week or so and also have a laptop. I would really, really recommend a TV and/or gaming system if you don't have one. Netflix will bore you after about a month. Think of it as an investment - a night in, playing fifa is much cheaper than a night out.
But really, if you aren't in an urge to spend your money...DON'T. Wait until the expenses come your way and the things that need bought come to you, don't go looking for ways to splash the cash.
Hope that helped

I've never understood the mindset of having to spend money just because it's there. I assume you'll be moving out for uni, you will want to keep as much money as possible to fall back on just in case you hit financial trouble.
Or buy a *****ing gaming PC.
