I’m looking to buy a laptop and will need something that can get me through a chemical engineering degree as I believe there is likely to be quite a lot of usage of computer software involved in the course.My two best guesses currently are either the Microsoft Surface Pro or the MacBook Air 2020 but there are probably other options.If any current chemical engineering students could tell me what sort of laptops seem to be favoured for the degree the help would be much appreciated. Thank you

It's more about what you want. You don't need a laptop at all. Having one to write reports, research, do some programming is very useful but you can easily cover that for less than half the price of the laptops you suggested.

You'll probably use some cad/modelling software at some point but it will be available on university computers and you might not even be able to get it (legally) on your personal laptop without spending a lot.
