Laptop for programming

Posted 1st Jun 2020
I’m looking for laptop recommendations to use for university, ideally on a tight budget.

New or refurbished - could anyone recommend me deals/models to look for? £200-300 if possible

Have a look at the Lenovo T460/470’s refurbished on Ebay you can get them for under 300 and they are quite decent specs
Looking around the programmers office (no idea price wise). Thinkpad T480's, couple of Surface pros,MSI GS65 and a Dell XPS13. One Macbook Pro though I think she works for our Print/marketing Department end who all use ios stuff.

100% agree with refurbished business Lenovo laptop for uni and for programming
100% agree, install linux, python etc
Also add Morgan Computers as a potential retailer

There was one for about £265, but it went out of stock shortly after my comment.
