If you not on Sony VAIO, then you must be in real bondage. Sony is the best for now whether programming or whatever

For intense programming and intense gaming, then get a Dell alienware (be prepared to spend some serious dough grin). The second picture is the alienware CPU, even a space shuttle can't compare to the processing capacity of that beast. I've never used it though, but you know good stuff just by looking at it. Oh, and the alienware laptop got some built in double turbo fans shocked , so no amount of programming or gaming will over heat it.

Yes. Python is an interpreted language, so you don't have to deal with lengthy write-compile-run cycles.

The guy is asking for a laptop and not a high-end machine like Macbook.

I use Macbook Pro for coding. Macs offers a great platform for the big boys in the programming world.

It comes with XCode which is a free interface
for programming. Mac programmers are scarce and are always in demand.


But if you do C+, C#, Java etc and you're looking for budget priced laptop, I'll recommend a Dell laptop. Get any spec with NVidia graphics chips, good ram, 17in display
Re: Whats The Best Laptop For Programming? by Nobody: 7:22pm On Jul 10, 2012
Or go for the Dell XPS 13 ultrabook. It's sexy and it knows it:

Guy, how/where can I download a python IDE and API that runs on windows 7? Tried Python Scripter Version 2.9 and it didn't work.
Re: Whats The Best Laptop For Programming? by ikp4succes(m): 7:48pm On Jul 10, 2012
any window xp and window7(not vista) laptop with 2-3gb ram and above 150gb is okay for programming.. Just make sure to buy external hard drive for backup maybe 80gb -150gb
Re: Whats The Best Laptop For Programming? by ikp4succes(m): 7:51pm On Jul 10, 2012
mac book are for graphic designers, dj, anything visual is to easy to use. linux is for advanced user, windows is for semi advance , y mac is for ordinary user. in short most girls use mac.
