Impossible is nothing, my dear.

You'd afford even a bigger one at the set time.

Keep grinding...

Hello. I need your informed advice and recommendations.

With a budget of just 130k, what's the best UK/US used system to code?
Note I'm all for speed, durability and running heavy sofwares seemleasly. Thanks for your response
I'll be honest with you, a budget of 130k cannot get you a good laptop for coding. Most programmers here started with a Folio 9470m/9480m and the current price is about 160k (and this is the one with HDD. Adding an SSD will shoot the price up by about N10000). When they got theirs, it was 75k to 85k, depending on specifications.

If you want long battery life (about 6hrs to 7hrs or more), go for a DELL 5470 or 5480 and these are close to 180k - 200k and they are all SSD enabled.

And yes, I sell pre-owned laptops.

130k can't buy this thou. Laptops are very expensive now. Me self I want to buy but no money yet and it is really slowing my learning progress

I didn't discuss pricing, use whatever you can now but I promise you after getting frustrated multiple times & tried smashing your lagging laptop more than twice, nobody go tell you to find money to invest in a good laptop with those base specs. Ask adobe effects users how far.
Re: What's The Best Laptop For Coding by Nobody: 5:52pm On Mar 08, 2022
There is no such thing as laptop for coding. Just get a good laptop with a good processor speed and you're good to go. Once you start making money, you can now upgrade to the latest laptop that can serve.

Note also that there is no 'long term' laptop, because at some points you may need to switch to a Desktop for heavy works because they have more power.

For your budget look for corei5, At least 4th gen, dual core with base speed of at least 2.0ghz, 6GB RAM, good keyboard, and a strong battery. I will recommend a dell laptop.
Don't stress yourself, 200k laptop and 150k laptop don't have any noticeable performance difference.

Yes. It could be. That is why I said depends on seller and location
Someone close to me got for 320k this year from his school mate who sells laptop.
No matter the situation, the price is not less than 300k
Re: What's The Best Laptop For Coding by biosystech: 6:24pm On Mar 08, 2022
Folaoni:

The last one I sold, being today, was 190k, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, backlit keyboard and this is because this was old price and we have been talking about it. Even we dealers are hoping prices too come down.

I recall a customer accusing me of hiking price till he went to the market himself and realized his budget of N300k could not get a core i5 laptop (new) for him.

Why should he avoid android studio?

Consumes lots of resources. Very horrible something. VS Code is a much much better alternative.
