Hello,
I'll be studying computer science in the fall and I want to look for a laptop for that major and for college basically. The price would have to be under at least $200-400, any lesser would be good. I don't mind the weight so long as it's not any bigger than 15 inches. So far I am looking at two options.

1)buying a laptop for just college stuff and computer science.
I already have one for gaming at home. The new laptop would be used for classwork, studying and programming essentially. So far I looked around online and found the apple macbook pro/air and acer aspire E15 recommended.

2) Using my gaming laptop for CS and still buying a laptop but smaller.
The reason why I would still try to another laptop in this case is because I still need one for studying for other classes. I love my current laptop but it's too big to carry around campus. I'd carry it for my cs classes if I have to but I think it would be nicer to have a small laptop. I was thinking maybe a Chromebook? It just needs to be enough for studying. Here's the specs for my asus laptop:

ASUS Rog GL753VE
Intel Core i7-7700HQ
1 tb HDD 5400RPM + 128 gb SSD
16GB DDR4 RAM
4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti Graphics
17.3" FHD (1920 x 1080)

Any help would be much appreciated!
