Hi!

I use a Microsoft surface and it works for me as I can use all the apps that are required from my course (criminology with criminal justice) and its touch so its easier to use when i'm trying to read something online.
I would recommend asking your uni course leader about what you will be using on your laptop for your subject and they may recommend laptops to get that they themselves use.

I hope this helps!

AMD Ryzen 4000 series ultrabooks/2 in 1s are great.
8 cores of power, great value and great battery life

I use an Asus Chromebook, mostly because I hate windows 10! For me it is perfect as I already use google drive, docs etc and Chromebooks have fantastic battery life, mine lasts a good 10 hours meaning I don't have to worry about finding a plug socket in lectures! If you need any special software for your course then I wouldn't recommend one but if its just for notes, research and essays like me then they're fab. Had mine for 2 years and it's still running like new!

Have to agree with you here. Chromebooks are perfect for anyone not doing a STEM course

Asus Vivobooks are good, problem with chrome books is that not all programs can be downloaded/work with its system.
