Good laptop for new Engineering student ?
I do not want to go overboard, because there is a good chance of it not having long lifespan (getting stolen or damaged), but at the same time do not want to cheap out and have her struggle with it.
She likes the 2-in-1 types, so far best value I found is Lenovo Flex 14, sold at MS Store, i5-10210U/8GB/256GB version for $750 or Intel i7-10510U/16GB/512GB version for $1050 should be comfortable even for some serious student level CAD work when using external monitor.

or perhaps this Flex 5 with Ryzen 5 4500U?

Any ideas? Thanks
