Hello,
I am a senior in high school and will be majoring in Economics next year in uni hopefully. I know its necessary to have a laptop for uni and so I wanted to ask your opinions and experience guys. Pros and cons of Macs, Dell, HP etc. Would the econ major require specific type of work? (btw I have never used a laptop consistently before, always depended on my phone)
Thank you beforehand

Hi!

I'm not an econ student so I can't speak specifically to the needs of your course. I can't imagine you will need something incredibly powerful, and these days most programs will work on any laptops (if you know of any programs specifically that you need, it is worth researching to check it will run on the laptop you want). Other than that, it is up to personal taste. A lot of people prefer Macs, I prefer Windows laptops because they are what I'm used to. Macbooks will look very nice, but can be quite expensive. Windows laptops tend to be a little cheaper. If you search for "dell outlet" online, you should be able to find some reasonably priced, modern laptops that will be able to handle your uni work no problem.

Hope this has helped. If the laptop is relatively modern, it is entirely down to your preference (screen size, keyboard etc). Just make sure you read the reviews first!
