I have a three-year-old Lenovo laptop with a 7th gen core i5 7200u processor 8gb of RAM and 256gb of SSD. My backup drive is a LaCie 2TB HDD. I don't have an external monitor at this time but test with an older Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 21" w/an Intel Core 2 Duo 4gb of RAM and 500gb HDD. These specs work for my web development for this time, but I would like to upgrade to a faster Windows machine.

 

Overlooked but 2 big moniter screens, a mechanical keyboard, wrist gel pads for mouse and keyboard.

 
 

Almost all developers love playing games in their free time. So, in my opinion it's a trade-off between specs, graphics and price(Well, I'm a student). So, maybe you could go for Asus Rog Series which are quite nice. I personally use HP Omen 15ax. But in my opinion you should take MSI and Asus Rog into consideration.

Happy Shopping

 

If you are going to do Web Development just need at least a i5 Proccesor or a Ryzen 3 with at least 8 GB of RAM.
