I was wondering if anyone could help me with what laptop to get. I was thinking of a MacBook or a microsoft surface book pro. I have a laptop atm but its too noisy as it is gaming.

Just wondering why it being noisy and "gaming" (?) is a problem.

Literally any laptop would probably be ok for that, I imagine.

The battery life is literally 45 min too.

are you planning on handwriting notes? I've recently decided that I want to do this as it will help with memorization. if so, go for the iPad Pro, there are many videos on youtube on how to use it for uni, its great for med students. you can also choose to get a detachable keyboard. check some videos out and see if that's what your into as I've seen its benefitted many other med students

I would prefer 1TB, why do you say the iPad air over the iPad pro?

Some incredibly expensive recommendations given OP's very basic needs on this thread..

£500 still isn't cheap! "General use, taking notes, research, watch videos, etc" - you can do that for like £200 come on.
