I won't be getting the surface with all the issues you guys are saying, also my brother has had one for a year and already has some problems. I'm thinking of either M1air, refurbished mbp, acer zenbook, acer aspire 5, but am unsure as to which one (leaning towards apple). PS i may choose to do business with a major in finance/marketing or i may do project/construction management. So would these laptops be fine for either course?

@aandablitzer where did you get your zenbook from and which model was it because all the zenbooks i see are like $1.7k
I got mine off ebay, can't remember the seller tho sorry

Apple sucks UNLESS you have the Quintet as seen here. I know I did vouch for the surface, but I got one for an extremely low price from an airport auction so you really can't complain about a huge bargain.

I've read the thread and can't figure out what quintet is, is it for notetaking? cause when i search it up it comes up as a game

Have a look to see if they have student discounts, you may be able to get 10-15% of the original price.

Otherwise, maybe stalk JB Hi-Fi sales.

get a MacBook air, it's only $100 above your budget but trust me it will help you a lot
If you want one, wait until the new year for the Apple back to school sale. Usually you can get a free pair of beats but this year in the US you could also get free AirPods.

Do you remember what time/dates they had the deal on for (do they do the back to school sale every year?), because uni starts towards end of feb

Ty, and do U think the M1 air would be an eligible product since it's new?

Also it says that for students to be eligible:
"A full time or part time student aged 18 or over with a current student union card or student
identification card and studying at an accredited Australian university or other Apple
approved institution" but I don't have a student card and don't know when I'll get it

Once you enrol you’ll get a student email and that should be enough pretty sure
