Not an IOS fan

I was a Windows user for more than 20 years, through Polytechnic and working life.
But around 5 years ago I switch to iOS and never looked back. It's easy to use,  very intuitive and problem free.

Yes, Windows machines are probably more value for money in the short term, but after 1-2 years  most will start having all sorts of funny problems. With my Mac, it's already 5 years and still going strong. Since it's for your kid, might as well get something that's more reliable and less blue screens.

But you can bootcamp any Mac and turn it into a native Windows machine.

I would recommend to get a Apple Macbook Pro if possible.
I just finished my 3 years uni, and most students use Apple in my uni. Very robust and problem-free too.

until u spill any drinks on the keyboard. Very few had "protection".

The new Lenovo X-series is ok as long you dont buy their PRC manufactured X200-210. X220 onwards are ok.

The PC spec U put up is more than enough. Just add a little memory till it's atleast 8GB-12GB, more than enough to run even demanding software like VMWare. My kids in Uni n Poly using a i5 without any issues. The PC spec U put up is a i7.

people are just greedy for speed and convenience

the faster the merrier, I open like almost 20 tab on my chrome... 32gb ram... which I hardly used at all

SSD is a must!
16gb is optional
i5 is a must

You meant Surface Laptop. Anyway, no need to go for Laptop 2, instead go for Laptop (Gen 1) will do as there is not much difference in terms of CPU power - Kaby Lake and Kaby Lake R (Gen 8).

A gaming laptop battery life is never great to begin with...just imagine the amount of CPU load...luckily its not a 4K panel else it will take a toll on the battery as well. Why get a gaming laptop for Uni? Its not gonna be portable as well. Hmmm...
