Not one of those makers are known for such. In fact there's a basic item in laptops that in about 2 years may need replacing. And on top of that is the issues with the OS that most use.
To call these reliable is ignoring a lot of issues.
OK, now about future proof. What if the world flips to tablets that use some other OS? How would your choice help?
Now back to reality. A nice laptop with the i5 and that much ram is just fine for today's programmers. And you can save enough to update it in 3 years.
Hey Everyone. This is my first time posting on this forum. As the title states, I need to purchase a laptop for a computer science program. I am looking at some workstation series laptops from HP, Lenovo, and Dell. Here are my main questions:
Which brand is known for reliability and quality control?
Is 8 GB of RAM and a core i7 quad core processor enough to future proof the device for at least 3 years? Are these specs sufficient to run Visual studio pro?
I understand that any major investment is ultimately a personal choice, but I would like some input about these brands. Personal experience with them would be great if you have any. Thanks!
