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.
I have currently an Acer laptop with intel core i5-5200u, Nvidia GeForce 940m with 2gbdedicated VRAM, 4gb ddr3 L memory
