Laptops don't make you a more productive college student,they will just distract you. Keep that pen and paper rolling and stick to a desktop when you need to type something. Latops are a bad investment unless you absolutely have to have one. They heat up so much that components just don't last.
I cant tell you how many people sit there in class with their laptops and piss around on youtube while not listening or learning anything.
That being said, I havent had any problems with asus products or their customer service and I know lenovo is also a very good brand. But seriously decide whether you really need a laptop, or just want one, because desktops are always superior
Yah sure, you dont necessarily need a laptop in class, but I would still definitely buy still buy a laptop over a desktop machine. There isnt any computer that will be a good investment. I think a macbook probably might have better resale value just because of the apple brand, plus a lot of people in school use em.
I used to be a Lenovo fan, but Ive had two of their products fail on me recently so I am done with them.
Of those two options Id probably get the Asus.
