Surface Pro 3 or Macbook Pro for college?

423

So I will be going to college in September in UK to study CS and I was wondering if I should get the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 (i5/256GB/8GB) or 13-inch Retina Macbook Pro (i5/256GB/8GB)? I am confused, any college students here?

Main stuff I plan to do:

Programming (duh) C/++, Java, etc
Android Dev
Photo Editing
Video Editing
Web Surfing
Editing docs

Also, how much student discount do we get?
