What are you going to be doing? Is it just programming and compiling? If so, then you don't really need a super computer. Something with a decent processor, decent drive and enough memory (8GB should be plenty) and you'll be fine.

Hello!


What's a CS? I don't think that's Counter Strike... or is it?


Do you mean $1300 USD? Where I live that's much for a normal laptop if it's not for heavy gaming.


Without your usage details it's a wild guess. Then after clearing that up you need to find models to compare since laptops are pre-built .

$1300? Buy ASUS ROG instead.

If you're a student don't buy the most expensive one. You use it for studies not for gaming.

But if you want to do study and gaming with one laptop ASUS Zenbook maybe good for you, we upgradeable ssd, 8 gb ram,1tb hdd

Hi,
CS is computer science actually. No, gaming is not my priority. Being a first year student (just beginner in the undergraduate course) even I am confused about what all usage will be there for the laptop when going further with my studies.
Ok, first I will try to find out that and short list the available models of laptop.

Yeah, purpose is needed. Just Computer Science is not enough. Like will there be audio/video encoding, archiving (file compression), compiling, etc. Audio/video encoding for example could use certain CPU's and video cards.
