    128GB SSD
    Non Touchbar
    Surface Laptop
    i5
    8GB

    My primary concerns are
    Build quality
    Keyboard Quality
    Battery life

    And then software ecosystem - is there still a general anti - Windows sentiment amongst many developers and Comp Sci students, or with the advent of better hardware (and the Ubuntu Shell) is that changing?

    Also - do you think a 12" screen would be too small during class on the Macbook? I have an external monitor for at home assignments, but I can't completely handicap myself on the go.
