I use a similar machine for work at home.
I would also give the school a call and see if they have any advice about what computer you might need. They could have different recommendations.
Plan on getting a fair sized USB flash drive for saving homework on.
I would also plan on getting at least one portable hard drive to keep all your larger projects on. Life will be easier on you if you can just keep all your projects together, and carry them from class to class since you will be using in-classroom computers supplied by the school for much of the day. Don't forget to back up this drive to your home computer. Nothing worse than losing all your work by misplacing your drive, or breaking it.
Cheers and good luck !
