Are you trying to tell me that any laptop can do programming? I doubt cos I checked on google and it's like not all laptops can do it.

Any laptop can be used to write a program as long as its at least 2gig ram n 1.8ghz processor.

What's your budget? If you want to start with web development (php/node.js/general javascript). A regular laptop with 4GB RAM and a minimum of Intel Pentium(R) process will be more than ok.

Avoid Older Amd processors. Even if it's QBASIC you intend to learn.

That's hard. Most of laptops on jumia are expensive and with specs that don't make much sense. But if you can find HP 2000 for less than 90k brand new, it will be a good deal.
Second hard around 45-52k, not bad.

Manageable for web development but you won't enjoy android development (android studio) should you ever find the passion to do that in the future.

YES you can. Make sure it's not the Amd edition. Check it to see if there is intel logo on it.

You're a programmer? is projectnaija your site. if yes then you have done a great work. Congrats.
I'll love to have you as a mentor. I'm going into programming next year and I intend to own a tech blog. I'm passionate about computer. I did marine engineering in my OND and considering going for computer science instead of going for HND in marine engineering.
I have a decision to make. what do you think?

I built projectn...
I won't mind to guide you in any way I can.
About studying computer science, you don't need a certificate to be a programmer. So if you have passion for the other stuff too you can continue with it.

Any laptop can serve except if u want to design phone app, then u will be needing android studio . If u use mini laptop for android studio ur system will cry (literally). Even on normal 2gig ram system , your system will likely hang if u start up the AVD. But u can avoid the problem by downloading alternative virtual device like gene motion.

Don't just buy a system because it is called hp 15 sha. Look at the specs. Like I stated earlier, stay away from amd and Intel celeron processors.
Re: Recommend A Laptop For Programming by godfrey01(m): 2:42pm On Dec 17, 2017
hp 15 not a good laptop. don't waste your money buying it. I am an engineer and I can tell you that there are fake hp15 in the market. even if you are buying it, make sure you go with someone who knows computer hardware very well. but I will never recommend hp 15 for anybody.

You didn't state the RAM, But I guessing it's over 3GB. It's good to go. You can even use it for android development.
