Well, the Dell is the property of my employer. I just use it for work purposes. The ThinkPad is mine, and I've just been using it to learn and build things.

Thinkpad is a beast. It is nice for multitasking and coding

For sure. I guess what I was getting at is that if someone is learning to code, they don't necessarily have to get a new or top tier machine. I spent $200 on an older thinkpad and it works just fine for my needs.

Ya You can go with a $200 machine but no one will buy another laptop when they have learnt the basics and are now an advanced developer, you can also say that it is kind of a "one time investment". I am saying this because i used my father's 8 year old laptop for coding and upgraded to a macbook after 10 months of development on that machine.
