Going into uni im considering whether or not to get a touch screen laptop or just a normal one. I was wondering if it is actually worth getting touchscreen or whether its best to just type notes instead of "writing" them to a notes app?

Also any tips on organising notes/ apps/ folder systems welcome (for a finance/ accounting student especially)

Thanks!

I've got an iPad (hate Apple, but the university gives one to all med school and AHP students) and use Notability on it, I also bought a cheap Chinese copy of the Apple pencil that works great.
You can import the slides into Notability or GoodNotes and then write directly onto the slides, assuming they're released prior to the lecture.
Also there's been multiple studies that have concluded that writing notes is a lot better for memory retention than typing them

It doesn't really matter if its touchscreen. As long as your notes aren't everywhere.
