If you are for speed and durability, then go with this my own spec

16gb ram,
Core i5
4gb dedicated,
1tb HDD,
250 SSD,
2.5/2.5 GHz,
Standard keyboard light.

Last year, na 270k I buy the fairly used one. Up till now, it's a wao. If fact, na machine.
It's DELL Inspiron laptop precisely.
Battery life:
Heavy usage 3 to 4 hours like connected to internet and making live Tutorials.

Not heavy usage like reading or coding 8 good hours.

Dash me nah

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

I have not opened my android studio in 4 months…maybe I should even delete that nonsense this night.

OP: if you can get a 2015 Macbook Pro with i7 cpu, 15gb ram and at least 512 gb of storage, you should be ok. Budget is around 350k. You can add 100k and get a Macbook Air M1 base model. Make sure it is M1 and dont let any fool tell you the non m1 version is the same thing.

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.
Please drop your number so that I can give you a call when I'm ready to buy

This is actually a gaming laptop but works well for coding.

Yeah that's true. Once downloaded it, deleted it immediately because of the size and also lost interest in learning programming.
