Uni Stress + Laptop help?!

(this will be a bit of a wordy post, so please bear with me!)

Okay maybe I wouldn’t call it full on stress, but it’s making me anxious haha!

Recently got my class timetable! Compared to other people who are studying engineering and medicine, mine seems really slack. All of my lectures/ tutorials (which are the classes) for my first term are an hour long (shorter than my classes in high school LOL).  (°∀°)b 

On Monday I’ve got 2 classes, 4 on Tuesday, 2 on Wednesday, 3 on Thursday, and two on Friday! But it says at the top of my timetable that I’ve got a conflict in classes… for communications studies! Which is the subject that I want to major in! (((゚m゚;) So when the course selecting database reopens, I’ll have to switch around the class times. Hopefully I’ll be able to switch my Friday classes to another day so I have Fridays free! ãƒ½(゜▽、゜)ノ

Oh and for those who are interested, I’m taking these classes!
Linguistics, history, communications studies, multimedia (once class which is coding, other for photo manip/video) , french, english/cultural studies.

In the Liberal Arts/Humanities faculty, there is no set list of classes you want to take, unlike those in medical studies/engineering who have to take physics, chemistry…etc. But people come under the impression that you’re dumb if you take Humanities, if compared to somebody in a science faculty? :1 People need to learn that there are so many jobs out there that require humanities positions! ï¼¼(゜□゜)/ For example, I want to go into advertising after I finish my degree. And many of those jobs are respectable! Not everybody needs to become a doctor or a lawyer haha… (asian parents orz)

Anyway, sorry for the little rant!
I need some help here! This weekend I’m going to buy a laptop for university. I’m looking for a computer that’s $700 at the most before taxes. I need a laptop that can handle high definition video / video editing software, photoshop…basically something that won’t lag. Not really too concerned about gaming (although it would be nice to play a MMO with my Moetron girls haha (●´ω`●)ゞ). Mainly looking for a 15.5″ size… 

I’m looking at the Sony VAIO right now! My friend has one and she says it’s really good, works well.
It sells for  $649.99 at Future Shop… Sony VAIO 15.5″ Intel Core i3-2310M Laptop (VPCEH12FXL).

(Added bonus that it’s pink ;])

Basically (for the techies), is this a good choice?

And for the rest of you, do you have a laptop? What kind / brand are you using, and would you say it works well? Added bonus if you’re a university student and use it for video editing haha…

Thanks guys! Hopefully I’ll have a cosplay progress post up soon. (`・ω・´)ゞ
