I'm about to start my next Uni module in Oct and have gone for a IT module. I currently have a 2014 MacBook Air which will remain my main laptop but know I'll need a Windows laptop as the course entails Windows only software.
I know I can dual boot or run a virtual machine but I'm thinking about getting a separate Windows only laptop for uni purposes. I was going to get a cheap basic one but starting to think it'll frustrate me if it's slow, which I don't want when trying to work! And also I'm likely to need it for future modules, so might as well get something that'll do.
Ideally I'm after a 13" Windows laptop with a SSD and doesn't run at a snails pace. It doesn't have to have a massive hard drive or super duper screen. I don't mind 2nd hand or refurbs and I have a student card so can get discounts from various retailers.
First glance I was thinking something along the lines of a Lenovo 500s!? Any suggestions or tips what to avoid/go for?
Many thanks :)
