Best Laptop for a Dietetics & Nutrition Major?


Hi everybody,

I'm going into college very soon and I know I'll need a laptop that is long-lasting (4-6 years) and will mainly be used to take notes, run Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. I've been leaning towards a 2-in-1 laptop such as the Microsoft surface pro 9 as I think it would be nice for certain diagrams and otherwise, but I'm unsure. My budget is up to $1,400 and I would prefer to have a laptop that can run Windows rather than MacOS. I'm also not the greatest when it comes to figuring out which parts and specifications would be best for my situation, so any help is appreciated!

    My recommendation would be to get one of the new Meteor Lake laptops like the MSI Prestige 13 or the Acer Swift Go 14. While neither are 2 in 1's, they both have touchscreens. These are the most powerful laptops under $1400.
