Hey guys, just wanted a take on a laptop for a computer science student. I'm considering these laptops:
Macbook 2017
* 256GB SSD
* i5
*8GB Ram
Macbook Pro 2017
8GB ram
Non Touchbar
Surface Laptop
My primary concerns are
Build quality
Keyboard Quality
Battery life
And then software ecosystem - is there still a general anti - Windows sentiment amongst many developers and Comp Sci students, or with the advent of better hardware (and the Ubuntu Shell) is that changing?
Also - do you think a 12" screen would be too small during class on the Macbook? I have an external monitor for at home assignments, but I can't completely handicap myself on the go.
Other Windows laptop suggestions are appreciated!
