@aimango wroteif you are thinking of buying a new laptop for uni, i suggest you wait until after 1/2way through 1st year before you make a wrong decision. your classmates can give you good suggestions, and you will know your needs once you know what you really need. uni is a big change, so if you made the wrong purchase... well that sucks.
Or else, you could do all that before your first semester starts. Most people's habits and study strategies don't drastically change. You should know what you'll need before you start.
