Why isn't this working for you?

In reply to: Best laptop for freelancer?

My work for example has me on a very high end gaming laptop for Android dev work. Sure I could get by with less but it's annoying to wait for the tools.

My son used to carry an Apple due to the film work they did. Later a Microsoft Surface did well and now a gamer laptop since you get the most bang for the dollar there.

Hi! I think choosing the best laptop for freelancer will depend of what kind of work you usually do.

If your working as freelance programmer I think MacBook will be your bestfriend.
