Laptop buying tips

Right now I'm using a Mac. I'm doing a lot of coding lately and I'm happy with this right now cause of the terminal that uses Unix. I do want purchase a laptop that easy on the pocket and is great to build for better performance. Any of you have any suggestions for me? Would be much appreciated!

The office supplied the y510p

So for about 1K 2 years ago it's a 4th gen i7 with gpu, 16GB etc. I was about to turn it in when the office sent it through an upgrade. Now SSD and a new keyboard so if I was shopping those are on my short list.
