    A laptop with Windows as your OS is your best bet for compatibility with software. A lot of people invest in apple products but their completely over rated, personally i wouldn't go for an apple product unless it's a cheap price (addimitingly they do have a nice UI and run smoothly but so overpriced)

    Whatever you get make sure you have enough RAM I only have four GB and it doesn't run so smooth as it should.

    It's super fast, easy to use and very light to carry round in lectures etc!

    A macbook isn't worth the money unless you're going to study creative arts or a degree which requires one.
    I have one myself, and the only reason why is because it was required by the school when I went to college. However, Adobe programs does run a lot more smoothly on a macbook... I have had multiple windows laptops, and before I got my macbook, my desktop pc was my go-to when using Adobe. But I still do most of my gaming on the desktop (obviously).
    If you're going to game a lot, then don't get a macbook. They're not fit for it.

    I currently use a 15 inch Macbook pro and I must say it is amazing.


    You could go for that or a Lenovo. Both are great for University due to the amazing interface.


    Hope it helps.

    Are you aware of any software that you'll need specifically for the course?
