Hi,
Being a CS undergraduate student, I am planning to buy a laptop for me. Its really very much confusing for me fix a laptop that suits to my academic purpose and my budget( around 1300$)
Can anyone here help me choose the best laptop with latest specs available for that price range! Is mac series a good option for me?

What are you going to be doing? Is it just programming and compiling? If so, then you don't really need a super computer. Something with a decent processor, decent drive and enough memory (8GB should be plenty) and you'll be fine.

Hello!


What's a CS? I don't think that's Counter Strike... or is it?


Do you mean $1300 USD? Where I live that's much for a normal laptop if it's not for heavy gaming.


Without your usage details it's a wild guess. Then after clearing that up you need to find models to compare since laptops are pre-built .

$1300? Buy ASUS ROG instead.

If you're a student don't buy the most expensive one. You use it for studies not for gaming.

But if you want to do study and gaming with one laptop ASUS Zenbook maybe good for you, we upgradeable ssd, 8 gb ram,1tb hdd

Hi,
CS is computer science actually. No, gaming is not my priority. Being a first year student (just beginner in the undergraduate course) even I am confused about what all usage will be there for the laptop when going further with my studies.
Ok, first I will try to find out that and short list the available models of laptop.

Maybe lenovo thinkpad will be good, great multi tasking, i use it for work.

But maybe it will be kinda heavy because the size...

Yeah, purpose is needed. Just Computer Science is not enough. Like will there be audio/video encoding, archiving (file compression), compiling, etc. Audio/video encoding for example could use certain CPU's and video cards.
