Discussion on: My beginner’s guide to choosing a laptop for programming

I had 24 GB of RAM at some point in my laptop ...
That, plus a i7 CPU (though not extremely high-end one) and three drives: one full SSD, fairly large (128 GB), one hybrid (part 7200rpm HDD, part SSD) - 750 GB and one fat HDD (5400rpm .. for for pure storage, who cares?) - 2 TB.

As far as operating is concerned, this was a dream machine, and not extremely expensive (~1500 EUR).

You did not mention screens much : size and resolution and extendability (one extra monitor? two? 4k ?)
