looking for advice for basic laptop for college course (law). Lectures online and doing written assignments ... any recommendation.

Existing laptop is over 5 years old and did the job - but now broken unfortunately

Any good deal out there ?

Thanks for that. Sorry for a basic question - is MS office or similar separate. I see on that website that you buy a licence for 1 year .., is this the modern way ?

You can still buy a single user licence for MS office, which is better value if you plan to get a few years out of your laptop.
There is also the Google version (google docs / sheets etc) and open office, both of which are good and free if cost is an issue.

Yeah, I'd go for a single user licence (student version maybe) over a subscription . . although I just use LibreOffice which is free and can 'open' and 'save as' MS Office file formats.

Certainly no need to spend on Microsoft Office.

I use OpenOffice extensively and love it. I use text document, spreadsheets and presentations. It's free.
I use Google docs occasionally and so far so good. Excellent for sharing.

I must check out LibreOffice, though I doubt I will move from OpenOffice.
