A good core i5, 12GB-16GB Ram will be fine. 500GB hard drive.

U can start with that, later u can get something bigger after making money from this.

Be steadfast. You are on the right path.

Yes u need to be able to write a little program to be an effective data scientist.

The good thing is u can learn language like python as a newbie and concentrate on just what u need as a data scientist.

For Android studio, I would advise a computer with a minimum of 8gb...if possible get anything above that.

Core i7, 7th Gen.

But we all the time neglect the graphic card memory should be above 1gb

Go for cloud subscription and use resources in the cloud.

Azure is a bit cheap. Set up Linux severs that auto shut down by a time. U can do all Ur stuffs in it.

If u have a fat pocket go for a 2019 Macbook Pro with 32GB RAM.

That is the specs of my laptop and there is no limitation so far. Although I have paid Azure subscriptions and have servers in the cloud to do stuffs.

Lol.. You just one kill the guy. There's none of those that a 4 gig RAM wouldn't run without hanging. He can settle for an 8 gig ram to have peace of mind. I don't know think he needs 12-16 gig RAM. His 100-150k wouldn't get him 12gig RAM.

He can buy a laptop with 8GB Ram and buy an extra 4GB or 8GB Ram and add to it.
