After 4 years spent at my current company, I decided to switch to remote work (management accepted). Therefore, I'm planning to travel around while keep working Mon-Fri. However, since I've been using only PCs my entire life, I'm not sure what laptop to choose now.
My first option was a Microsoft Surface. However, most reviews consider it overpriced and not worth the money.
I took the following into consideration:
- has to be 15" (not bigger, not smaller)
- at least 16GB of RAM
- light (I travel only with a backpack, regardless if I have to use planes, trains or cars)
- I mostly work with vagrant and docker (running around 2 VMs daily)
- Ideally it would have 512 GB SSD, but I can manage with 256
- I don't want HDD, nor optical drives.
- Video card - not sure if it actually matters.
What would you recommend me?
