Let me put it to you this way: the average American college student graduates with $35,000 of debt. Given that, is it that ridiculous to be okay with being $36,000 in debt -- as opposed to $35,000 -- for the sake of having a good, reliable, future-proof computer that probably won't need to be replaced for one's entire college career?

I mean, shit, my MacBook cost about as much as two semesters' worth of textbooks. Whoop de doo.

Apple products last longer and have higher resale values than shitty PCB laden Chinese plastic """laptops""".

People will still buy old Macbooks, but who buys old PC's besides Cred Forums neckbeard thinkpad fetishists?

Logan Sanders

Yeah this is the other ridiculous thing
I pay 1700€/year not telling them how much my parents make so its the higher class, the lower is about 800€ or the state just pay for you If you want to study, they even give you home.
This is how a system is supposed to work

Op just get a chromebook, but don't get one of those poopoo rockchip ones unless u want battery life

Nicholas Rodriguez

here, the state pays 3 year of bachelor, 2 years of master and 4 years of doc., anything above that and you have to pay every plus year yourself, which goes from 800 to 1700 eur per year

inb4 what debt

I bought a Surface Pro 3 for class to take notes on and do some programming (unfortunately SystemVerilog isn't the fastest code to run), and it has been pretty great. I only spent $400. The Surface Book is just a more expensive version of it, which desu I see absolutely no reason to spend the extra money. The hinge is garbage. I also have a MacBook Pro, paid only $300. It's a mid-2012 with an i7 haswell, 8GB RAM, and 750GB HDD. Aside from XCode being great software and the touchpad being godlike, I just don't use it. There's just no reason to, my Surface does everything it does but better.

My Arizona™ Green Tea can is made out of aluminium but you don't see me bragging about it's durability.

Brandon Howard

quality aluminium
Aluminium is not a premium metal. It's like one of the cheapest metals (among the ones that actually are sturdy enough for cases and shit). The real quality alloys are titanium or magnesium based. I really hate when manufacturers try to about their "premium" products by using terms that normies don't really understand. Recently I saw a tablet with aluminium case made using CNC, which is well... absolutely normal, but they worded it like it was some wonder.

Honestly just try and hold off for the next iteration of each. The surface book should be mature enough to be a solid investment then and the Mbps are long overdue a refresh

This. Even if you need to look at the book most can be found online anyways.

most come bundeled with (((acess codes))) to expensive online quiz/homework sites like MyMathLab and other cancer.

The price of the code will be listed at $~120, with the code/book bundle being only 10 dollars more.

Universities get kickbacks for enabling this cancer.

Yep. It's great. One Note replaces paper and pencil for me. Grad student in Chem engineering. Only use pencils for exams.

Be sure to have backups though. Putting all your notes in one basket is dangerous.

you don't need anything more than a 200 dollar laptop for uni. no need for looking at the two most overpriced shits out there.

Chase Johnson

Yeah, whatever you have to tell yourself. I used to go to a community college full of people who bought those $200 laptops. They carried chargers around with them, their laptops' fans would audibly spin up while taking notes, and they were always adjusting their screen tilt because their viewing angles were garbage. They couldn't even begin to use them outdoors, either.

Then, one day, they'd show up with a paper notebook instead of a laptop. Why? Because their shitty $200 laptop fucking broke on them, and they don't have the money in their budget at the moment to afford a new one.

I'll take the MacBook, thanks.

I forgot about the access code Jewry. Luckily I've only taken 1 class that required one.

Kevin Young

do you really plan on not using pen and paper, just a laptop? you're dumb af and naive. I got by with a thinkpad, didn't need the charger, got 5-8 hours on battery, could run heavy monte carlo sims and handle data analysis with thousands of data points, 3d cad modelling, etc, and I edited photos in lightroom. I had a 1000+ laptop before I got the thinkpad and it broke down on me, not the cheap one. life doesn't work the way you think it does in your head

I've had pic related for almost 3 years now and have been using it for school related things. Great battery life, very similar to a MacBook Air in build but still has been durable enough to lug around in a backpack all day without a case.

Writing uses more brainpower than typing. The guy writing shit down will memorise it faster than a guy typing shit.

There is really no reason to use a laptop for note taking unless the class is actually about literally writing some code or using some software. I'm a CS student and I used a real notebook for most of my classes.

Is OneNote for Windows different from that for Android? The Android version has terrible interface so I'm sticking with other program for now but it isn't perfect as well.
