The programmers get a nice current or prior gen i7 with the usual 16GB DDR4, GPU and maybe SSD (if not we change it later.)
Cost runs just above 1K. There are dozens of such machines like the ASUS ROG line.
What is your proposed system for programming?
I am programming with:
Visual studio 2015 - ASP.net MVC
SQL Server 2014
and using team fundation
