asdf789 I've merged your two laptop-related threads as they are so similar. You can bump this thread if you want additional advice.

If you're looking for cheap but good then you can forget about any apple product ever.

do you mean the surface pro? there are other lightweight options that are much cheaper so if you go for that make sure to have good contents insurance.

Couple of things you need to think about.
First, what course will you be doing at uni? If you're using really heavy editing and gaming software, you need a fast processor (i7). However if not, you will be fine with an i5 processor.
What sort of style? You can get a normal laptop or a 2-in-1 (which you can flip the keyboard over and turn it into a tablet).
Screen size?

With laptops you tend to get what you pay for. £129 is really cheap, but if you do have a larger budget like you say, I’d recommend the 320S. Otherwise the 120s will do the job i reckon, may just start to struggle towards the end of your degree
I have the 320s and i must say it’s brilliant. i have the i5 model with 8gb of ram and it’s perfect for work, i would highly recommend.

Looking at getting a laptop too in August ready for starting university September. Don’t want to spend more than £500. I will only need it for essays and the internet

So rn I’m torn between Lenovo ideapad 330s and Microsoft surface pro 6.

In uni, im hoping to do biomedical science and use the laptop for research, notes etc but I also plan to write a book in the future and hopefully still use the laptop after uni.

Any suggestions please? Also should I get it now for Yr 13 cuz I think it would be beneficial but unsure if would be less efficient in the future.

Thanks

To be honest... go for HP or Asus. With £500 HP or Asus you will get more features than what £1000 Mac or Surface will give you like the storage or graphics card.
