What laptop would you recommend I purchase? I'm completing Bachelor of Arts at UNSW and thinking of buying the 2016 MacBook Pro
If you're set on getting a macbook, don't get the 2016. You want a convenient laptop that doesn't require you to bring anything else, i.e dongles. The 2016 laptop has no usb ports (only thunderbolt), and it is slightly faster performance-wise than the 2015, that's not to say that the 2015 performance is bad. If you're looking for laptops other than macbooks, maybe look for a zenbook, or a dell xps.
Definitely a Mac, I don't think it matters which type really but it has to have USB ports!
If you are doing music or media based subjects you could get a pro, but if you are just doing more writing based subjects an Air would be fine!

Don't get a Mac. Get a Lenovo, they're about $1000 cheaper but has all the same functionality.
If ur gonna be an arts student the latest macbook is a must for ur degree

I only know UNSW students get greater discounts on Apple laptops than USYD students (like ~$100 cheaper ) lol
What laptop would be good for Computer Science?

My $450 2-1 laptop (i5 5th gen) has been working great for everything I've ever needed it for (including more intensive stuff like programming/running LAMP stacks etc)
I dont really see any extra functionality tho , but if you have the $$$ go for dem sweet aesthetics
Back on topic, I have to admit in the current state without the normal USB ports, it's difficult to recommend Macbooks unless you really can live without them. And even then, I'd have to recommend a Pro so you have at least more than one! I think the Air was a great laptop, and am even thinking of buying another one for my Dad since he doesn't care for Retina but would need USB-A ports.
