    What about i5 surface? Does MacBook is still better?

    Rock, meet hard place.

    Linux laptop. Far better value for the money, and if you're on here probably more useful than either.

    If you're on a CS course you're likely to be doing dev work and running native Linux has its advantages.

    I would say Surface

    Mac is slightly better specced though

    I'd say mac for cs related stuff and surface for regular school stuff. Having the stylus in a note taking app can be really useful. If you don't think you'd use the touch screen a lot, the mac seems a better overall choice.

    What are your plans that you plan getting a MacBook. I'm looking also for laptops and the MacBook Air has better specs than the MacBook when I researched it

    You need 8GB of RAM.

    @madskills No, if you're buying a laptop nowadays, you want 16GB minimum. Especially as you cannot upgrade MacBook or Surface RAM.

    I'd prefer a surface as a student. But maybe one with an i5 and 8gb of ram.

    I find Mac better to code on. We'll, mainly because of macOS. Every development tool out there is built on / for this machine. My main motivation to shift to a mac was to leave behind the days of setting up dev environment on Windows, which as you know, is nightmare.

    I'd go with a KDE slimbook. Similar specs to a Macbook Air but the awesomeness of Linux preinstalled.

    That's just me, though

    Something else what includes a CPU.

    The surface pro looks underwhelming compared to the macbook.

    What's your budget ? There may be other choices out there of a ultra portable.
