I’m in yr 12 and want to get a laptop for my studies next year but also need it to last at least my first year of uni. Any suggestions?
I was thinking of getting a MacBook Air 2020, is it work £1000?
Also, if I pay an extra £200- £300, I can get a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar. Is the Touch Bar worth the extra few hundred?

You can get some good Dell laptops at around the £400-500 price mark for around the same specs. Might be worth looking at that price range, rather than a macbook

I find HP pavillion are good laptops if your willing to spend >£400. My old one lasted me from year 12 to end of uni. You may want to replace the battery after a couple years but thats cheap and easy to do.

I would recommend, you look at Dell laptops, lve had them for years, for work and play, and they are excellent.
Wouldn't spend the money on a mac book air, I doubt you'll find it any better.

Acer Nitro 5 is the best midrange laptop for you as it's not too expensive, its fast and powerful, can play games at decent graphics settings and it even has an SSD as well + fan that you can control! Gaming laptops are just better overall than normal laptops, even if you don't game and just need it for studies - it's still a good option.
