Just buy a MacBook Air or Dell XPS. if you can, else find a cheaper alternative.

I agree. A refurbished MacBook is a good direction for pretty much anything you're looking to do. You probably want to be "mainstream" when you're a student and don't have the time to devote to the nuances of your machine.

Dell XPS

I did that, and it went surprisingly well. Still one of my most usable dev machines for my virtualization heavy work flow years later.
