I'm a geezer, but my son is second year in college, and he said he finds he has little need to carry his laptop around on the typical day. I guess it depends on what you use it for, how far your classes are from where you live, how much time you have to spend on it between classes, stuff like that.
My only real advice is get the best thing you can afford so that it will be powerful enough to do what you'll want it to do in a couple of years.
Also get the biggest harddrive you can, because I hear college students are really into all that pirated music and movie swappng stuff.
