by the way in august im starting school for computer engineering whitch i believe this should take care of everything i will need but does anyone know something else that would prove usefull for school ? especially in the degree im going for
You mean in like... a computer? Or like... stuff you need to know? Keep in mind most of the people (that I know of) on these forums don't have degrees in engineering. I myself haven't finished high school (that right there probably discredits me in most peoples' opinions, but see if you can find some bad advice...)
toms hardware is basically overun with kids that are under 16 including myself. if you need portablitiy, getting a ultrabook is a great idea since it has decent performance, durablitiy, and smalll size and good battery
Well... ultrabooks are REALLY expensive. I'd say that getting an inexpensive laptop (not netbook) for just taking notes and stuff like that would be a good idea, with a desktop back in your room for the heavy-duty stuff. I mean, all you'll really be using is the word processing tool, some programming stuff, and the internet on your laptop.
Check out deals2buy for some GREAT deals. Tomshardware's daily deals are okay as well, along with slickdeals. Lenovo commonly has 50% off on certain laptops that are VERY nice.
