I think the key here is what will she use it for? If she's studying graphic design or something, then she might want a Mac, as they have quite good software for that.

One thing to remember is, college students usually aren't far from wifi or an outlet. If she wants to carry it a lot, get a smaller size. There will probably be a tv with an HDMI port she can plug it into if she wants to watch movies, and there are lots of usb/bluetooth keyboard options that are more comfortable. She can dock it at home, and be able to carry it around easily. Wifi-wise, she can probably do most of her word-processing online. Google Docs can save as .doc files. I don't know how most US students do it, but I don't really care what format my own students turn their papers in in, as they get converted to pdf files that I can then mark on.

Personally, I play games, so I'd go with a desktop plus a tablet of some sort that I can use with a bluetooth keyboard for note-taking. That would run you about the same price as a Macbook. I recently came back from a 3-week trip, part of which was a conference. I was able to work on my presentation and tweak some things in my handout using my iPad and bluetooth keyboard with few problems (Google Slides ate part of my presentation, but that's a software issue).

I wonder why, if we count these as the top disasters, the Great Leap Forward isn't considered the greatest tragedy in human history, since it apparently killed more than all the others combined.

That's a very American sentiment. In many countries, children live at home until marriage or they take a job far away. It surprises me to find out that many people I meet into their 30s still live at home. Men and women.
