You don't definitely need a name to get a better computer for programming. All you need is a good computer with enough storage capacity to hold your applications and video cards. i will advise you select any of the four major producers: Dell, HP, Toshiba, Asus... Better still it is possible to get a combination of all. What my friends in programming did and still does was build their own computer. Get a nice pc and fine tune it 8gig of Ram is good and they make sure they have at least 1terabyte cos they make use of many apps....and if you are going to make use of a laptop, HP and LENOVO should be d first option with high storage before others. Thanks

prof800:
most programmers are not really selective about screensize as long as the screen is reasonably wide..so believe me, this should be top choice.

Also look at.:
HP ENVY Dv7-7250us(i7, 1TB, 8Gb, 17" @160-180k) *muah* beautiful.

Another cute workstation is HP ENVY 4-1101ea (i5, 500Gb+32Gb SSD, 8Gb, 14" @120-135k)

for DELL, the recommended 'top choice' would be DELL XPS 13-952 (i7, 128Gb SSD, 4Gb+upgradeable @ only btw 170-180k).

other better ones might just be too expensive.
Lol... you need to inspect the condition of the CPU heating up and losing contact related problem on crunching numbers and other running GPU games related programs.

Have you considered ASUS G75VW-BH71-CB- 17.3 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3630QM Windows 8 Laptop- Black at =N= 138,890.00?

Seun:

Currently thinking of choosing the Sony VAIO E Series SVE1713CCXB, a 17.3-Inch Laptop with a 1080p glossy screen, no external graphics (which web programmers don't need anyway), and a white-backlit full keyboard. It costs just $739.99 on Amazon.com. Upgrading to 16gb of RAM and a 250GB SSD raises the total cost to $1035, which seems rather reasonable.

Seun, leave sony VAIOs alone.

Sony Vaio is underrated though. It is not mainly meant for games but it is one of the few laptop products with less problems out there. I agree on going for Sony Vaio. I have used a lot of the products and others as well and I can't agree more Sony is expensive but very good product.

Well @seun, I think this is no more about people suggesting to you about what to do and what not to do. From what am seeing, you have a good knowledge about the topic in question. Since you are yet to hire and buy the pcs; I suggest you hire, let them know your budget for the pcs and find a balance between cost and performance.

Those fancy lappies can not withstand d vigorous use u'll subject them to. Except you ship in the part, it's a long thing getting the parts here in nigeria. It generally unstable.

I used one, a really cool looking thing but it broke down (and believe me, they break down pretty easily) and there wasn't a single place to get its parts.

Then I had 2 more experiences trying a help a consultant fix theirs, Phew! bros me sef tire na undecided

One thing i believe is that most people till now, still tend to prefer the choice of "product" over "specs". A fellow mate of mine in my school dayz in the same Comp Sc. dept then will always keep a deaf ear & disregard any conflicting opinion against products like Dell and HP. It was later he realized when our lecturer made us know that Specs are what determine the "intended function", and NOT d product.
pls NB: (Products in their respective capacities have been proven to make better/desirable "specs" than one another.)

my brief contribution to this is ('cos im just gonna make a silly epistle if i continue) :

If Mr Seun wants laptops/desktop for resourse-demanding tasks like programming ONLY, i HUMBLY suggest u go for :
laptop- DELL XPS L322X(less than 180k) / SONY VAIO VPCE(less than 170k)

desktop-not sure, but i ASSURE you HP/Compaq are best in this area.

(but recent improvements reveal MacBooks as "considerably" better than others, but cost is the ONLY constraint here.)
