    Depends on what course you are doing. If Law, English, Medicine or something then you don't need a very powerful laptop. Only get a really powerful, high-end one if you are going to study comp sci. Architecture or maybe engineering.

    Unless you're doing something like Engineering, Design etc. which requires a high performance machine for some of its software any old tin pot laptop will serve you just fine.
    Personally I like Thinkpads though, built like a brick **** house so when you poor wine over it it works fine
