Welcome to CSR Nation
I am a CR student and am looking at pro writers and laptops. I have a good desktop that I will use at home so only need a laptop that is "good enough" for jobs. Any suggestion on laptop brands? Also, which is preferred, a laptop mic or a writer mic? I'm thinking used writers, possibly a Steno Fusion, and will definitely use CaseCat.

I have both. It's always good to have a backup. I have had the one on the laptop not be working a few times for various reasons, and the one on my writer has always worked so I've had backup each time.
I would use a microphone that's attached to your laptop because that is by far the best quality for sound. I think Toshiba or Samsung are great. I just bought an amazing Samsung for only 465 on Amazon, which is super cheap and I use it on all of my jobs. Just so you know, I am a heavy-hitter reporter that's been in the business 26 years. You don't have to spend tons on a laptop to get what you need in our business. Just make sure your microphone is top quality, especially being new.
