    Anytime anyone asks "what is the best <hardware variable> for a <industry variable> <occupation variable>," there will inevitably many follow up questions such as what particular <industry variable> it'll be used for, what specific things you plan on doing with it and what your budget is. In the absence of all of that, I will just suggest the Surface Pro 3 with i7 and 512GB storage.

    That should pretty much cover anything you plan to do for the next 5 years assuming you have the cash to buy it.

    ​Cheers.

    Or ask the university if they a "minimum" spec for laptops or ask second grades for advice.
    Good Luck

    Ask university for requirements.

    Go from there. Because for something as vague as your asking, we may as well suggest multiple insanely expensive models to cover all the bases.

    I just completed 4 years on an IT course and bought my laptop in second year. My laptop is a hp pavilion,8 gigs of ram,i5 processor and a terabyte hard drive.Its specs hold up pretty well today and Iexpect it to last me another couple of years

    If I had to buy a new laptop today.I would first look at the specs,not the exact model.Today,your gonna want a fast processor, i5 or i7.Some of the AMD processors are descent too,look at the clock speed !

    You'll also want 8 gigs of ram.I would try and get a machine with a solid state drive,which increases hard drive performance.

    Another tip which I missed when o bought mine was to check laptop weight.Mine is quite heavy which was annoying when I had to carry it from class to class .Look for a thin laptop,15.6 inch screen is perfect,anything bigger or smaller is not ideal.

    I would probably llook to buy hp or Toshiba,maybe Samsung or lenevo. You'll have to spend big to get a decent dell laptop.I would also stick with windows to ensure compatability with the software you'll be using over the years for office and development tools etc.

    Good luck
