major specs to look out for Generation of the CPU
dont be fooled by someone showing you a core i7 2nd generation and claiming its better than core i5 4th generation
you can easily know generation by the first number in the model. like core i5 4xxx is intel core i5 4th generation, core i5 6xxx is intel core i5 6th generation which are currently the latest....

at least 4gb ram is ok.
hard drive 500gb is good to go

graphics card minimum nvidia 1gb

usb 3.0 etc

Please Sir, I just bought a laptop that I wanted to use for the same purpose and even more. How will I know where to find d dedicated graphic card and also,how will I install all the necessary softwares and drives because there is no software,application etc. Attached is the specs of the laptop.

Look for a core i5, with Nvidia graphics processor. It's should be between 150k-200k, mainly because of dollar rate

I don't think so it should be between 250 to 300k...laptop's are really expensive these days
Re: What Laptop Type And Specs Would Be Suitable For This Purpose? by stag: 5:13pm On Sep 05, 2016
Although I use HP, a Lenovo Thinkpad with 4gb RAM, 500 HDD, Core i5 minimum will do it for you. You can do 8gb RAM if you love speed like me

But avoid any laptop that's AMD motherboard. Goodluck with your search

Any brand and specs from core i3 3rd gen and 4GB DDR3 will do cos you don't need high performance system for learning networking.

Even Pes16 will run on an Intel graphics HD4000

The only special consideration for web design should be an SSD.very important


You're mouthed joor

I have been using AMD for over a year now tho, Play games smoothly with dedicated memory of 1.5gb and 8GB Ram. I don't know what's with all these attack on AMD system. I plan to upgrade to an even latest version of AMD if i ever want to buy a laptop again. I don't do websites programming stuff anyway.

It is infamous for its inability to handle heat well. I had a TX2000 HP tablet in 2010 (AMD) that had me visiting computer village at least twice a month. Initially, I thought it was because I had VMWare installed with Linux RedHat O/S but soon realized because I always slept with music playing through the night, it heats up because the ventilation pores are covered by being placed on the bed or rug so the heat accumulates.

Basically, in cool environments, problems with AMD systems are minimal. Or you reside in colder regions in contrast to heat prone areas like Nigeria/Africa.
Although the graphics beat intel as a gamer would prefer. Goodluck with yours tho

The new AMD processors have solve that problem. I reside in the north and surprising those who unfortunately got their motherboard fried are mostly those using Navidia Graphic card. I know of three of such cases, Mostly Acer Nvidia laptops. The backlash on AMD is just over hype. Just install the right drivers and update AMD catalyst then you are good to go, The drivers will handle all the problems. If the system get too hot it will automatically switch off.

True tho, the HP Tablet was Nvidia card. If they have truly improved on their technology, it'd still take some time for the scar that scare people to heal.

Depends on your price bros.I comfortably use a Samsung pm830 256GB ssd which was $199 in 2014.

If you have a separate drive for media files (mine is a 2tb drive in my CD drive caddy),a transcend 128gb ssd will be okay.its quite affordable

It's cheap these days,but dollar rate isn't smiling.
Even in a low end system,an ssd will work wonders.

In all you do ,please try to get an ssd,the performance and battery boost is too superb to ignore.

Cheers..


Good pm bro... Can u pls tell me wot dis mean? Memory: 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM (1 x 4 GB).
