QuestionHardware bods - Laptop for a Student Pin

Okay, Child 1 is due to go to university in October.

She'll need a laptop for writing that student shizzle that they do. I'm thinking of a minimum spec of 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, i5 processor and 14" screen. And light.

She's reading History & French so doesn't need a dev machine and doesn't game or anything. Watches too much foreign art films though.

So does that spec sound okay?

Recommendations? NOT Dell, they're a pile of elephant and no one will ever persuade me differently.

[OT: Yea, fine thanks. Double dosed of 5G today and Bill says hi!]
