5 Best Laptops For Programming in 2018

Whether you are a computer science student or a professional programmer, a solid workhorse laptop is essential.  Since programmers end up sitting in front of their computer most of their waking hours, it’s important to pick out the best computer that fits all your needs.

The good thing about coding is that most basic specs are sufficient.  If you do not plan on playing highly intensive graphic games on your laptop then you are in luck, most of the expensive laptops are geared toward the computer with powerful graphic cards and lots of RAM, which are extremely costly.  Unless you plan on running several instances of virtual machines, you likely won’t need the excessive RAM power.
