This applies to a degree in Sweden also, especially in humanities and art as you pointed out. It is unfortunate because Apple products are much more powerful than that the student probably needs unless there is a lot of rendering to be done; I've managed the last four years with a Thinkpad L430 which I bought out of HS for ~50EUR — although, the lab assignments I've done have never been heavy on the computing side.

On the topic of reports and the like: I found out about R Markdown just the other day and it seems like a decent substitution for LaTeX feature-wise. From clear-text files it can generate HTML, PDF and Word documents via pandoc after interpreting the source .Rmd. Has anyone here worked with it?
