Highly suggest you look at a laptop -- and an Intel I-5 or Ryzen 7 would be more than enough CPU for what you want to do music- or video- editing wise. As a college student, you're going to be highly-mobile between classes and the library, for example. To be efficient, you may have some time between classes to get that last bit of homework done, or jump-start on a new project. Additionally, I'd recommend solid state drives (SSDs) rather than hard disk drives (HDDs), since you'll be carrying your laptop around and setting it down by your desk, lecture hall seat, etc.; HDDs are more prone to damage in this environment. As for the 600 dollar price range ... I'd set my sights on something around 800 - 900 dollars to get a better than average laptop, so you can enjoy your college experience! Cheers!

If he is a collage student, he may not need a laptop this year.
