    I will be starting the first year electrical engineering program at my university next semester. I don't know much about computers. I just want your opinion on what model of laptop would be able to perform good with engineer-related software. I really don't want to break the bank but any opinion would be great.

    P.S. I hear that lenovo is good but I'm not sure what kind of features I should customize it with.

    Thanks for your time :D

    does the university curriculum state what
    software you will need to install and what the minimum computer specification is to support that software

    not exactly. They have labs around campus but i rather do the work in my dorm. I know next semester we'll be working with matlab and eventually hit CAD.

    its a bit difficult to know if there are any special requirements for the software - I don't know the software hopefully others here will and can advise further

    Ask your advisor what programs you will need to use. In addition to system requirements, you need to know if the software you want to use is even available for you to install on your own computer. There may be an additional cost involved in that to get your own licenses.
