Re: programming

To program Java I don't need high resolution on my laptop. I use a big external monitor And an external mouse and keyboard also.
What do you mean with "efficiency"?
Durability has a lot to do with how you use and maintain it.

So I would go for an I5 or I7 model with enough (8 GB?) RAM in the professional Latitude or XPS series.

Well remember when you code

and distribute to other people that most people don't have the higher resolution screens. Our developers had issues with that in th past. XPS is probably the best overall laptop Dell makes and Alienwares are pretty good also.

Again, durable?

Google durable and the definition is all things that laptops are not. Unless we look up those Toughbooks.

OK, I like the XPS line for such things but the office set me up with a 999 US dollar Lenovo y510p with 16GB RAM, 4th gen i7 and after 2 years bumped it up by swapping in an SSD. I'll keep using this as it seems to be better than most laptops I see in the field.

I don't have a picture of my current setup but 2 setups ago this is how I set up for programming.

That means you may searching for a long time.

There are new models out every week it seems. I get along fine with the one the office supplied me, but is there a better model? That's an easy yes.
