In this article, I will tell you laptops you can buy for Coding and Programming
The things you need for web dev in a laptop are:
Display: A big ratio display is needed for multitasking let's say at one side you have your code editor open and on the other side chrome for results of the code you are writing but you have a 13-inch laptop, it would be really difficult for you to see your work and the results as well. On the other hand a 15-inch laptop will make you much more efficient and if you are a professional you may need a higher resolution and a higher screen size like 16-inch or 17-inch. Some Users buy a small ratio laptop for portability and then connect them to a bigger display, monitor, or even a TV.
RAM: You Need at least 8Gb of RAM Lower than that and it will kill your computer with loads of work. You Need Higher RAM For Multitasking 16GB Of RAM Should Be Enough. You Can Go Higher If You Are Gaming or Editing on the laptop as well.
Here are the loading times of 8GB Of Ram and 16GB Of RAM
Storage: You Should get an SSD For faster OS Boot and it will also make your work faster, Or you can also go for an SSHD. SSHD means a laptop that will have an SSD and an HDD for example 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD.
Well if you won't buy the best I will suggest you go for a MAC like if it is only for coding you can go for a Macbook Air($999) if you want to do video editing as well as coding you should go with a Macbook Pro ($2,399.00)
If You want to go with a Windows Laptop you should go with the HP Pavilion ($659.99) or Lenovo Thinkpad ($499.99) Series If You are planning to do video editing as well go with the Dell XPS 15 ($1,299.99)
Well, I recommend a Mac for IOS Development and both mac & windows laptops for Android Development like Dell XPS, HP Pavilion, Lenovo Thinkpad, and Lenovo Ideapad. Well, You should have a nice budget because this would be a great and long-lasting investment.
