What is an alternative device with thunderbolt 3 that can be better upgraded to last longer? I require a laptop for my daughter at junior Secondary School. The school prefers surface pro 5 or Lenovo miix 520; i5, 128 SSD, 8GB memory. They swapped out the previous years 2017 models being the Surface Pro 4 and the ACER Switch Alpha 12 (SA5-271). It will be used for Windows 10, the full Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Products including PhotoShop and InDesign, Camtasia Studio. They draw on the screen with pens but not really sure why. Apparently better for note taking. She will transport it on her bike. It will be used from 9 to 3 daily as a minimum operational time.

Software titles make up the first draft of the 2017 software image Titles are subject to change image is constantly updated and students automatically receive latest image when their computer is being re-imaged

Since they are going to be using images for the system, it has to be worked out with the school what they will support. System images are based of a specific hardware setup unless you have info otherwise that other things can be used outside of what they say.

Surface Pro is pretty good with drawing on the screen and has good enough hardware specs for running programs listed.
