I would suggest you buy a decent light weight laptop as of now, as its easy to carry and should help you get through most of your school related work and other activities as in movies, music and stuff.

if later you need something powerful, then you can always build a computer for urself as it would be much more cost effective and you can also upgrade it in the future without much problems.

gaming laptop is always a bad idea, too compact, heat is always an issue. gaming laptop ages fast and slow down quickly. Build a pc and get a normal laptop :)

For the school work a low end laptop alone should suffice, if you even need a computer of your own at all...
If you want to do other, more computer demanding, stuff than school work you might consider something more powerful.
