What laptop or tablet should I buy for school?

Episode 1401 (1:05:21)

Amy from Owings Mills, MD
Microsoft Surface Pro

Amy's daughter is going to college and wants to get a Surface Book. Leo says he's not a fan of the Surface Book because it's pretty top heavy and ungainly. But if she likes the concept, Leo recommends the Surface Pro, which is more of a tablet with a detachable keyboard.

A two-in-one like the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga (2nd Generation) includes a stylus for note taking. HP, Asus, and Acer all make two-in-ones as well.
