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?
@HeyJes: I'm a UNSW student how/where to I get such discount?

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
