Hi @Dood!

A quick google search will give you what you need.

the best thing you can do is find a confortable set up, a big enough screen, or maybe a second screen, a confortable keyboard (maybe even an external one) etc - the specs have their importance, you can’t have specs too low or you have difficulties running certain things, but even the most performant computer will pale against a confortable set up

So I’ve Googling but i can’t find the laptop on my budget, the laptop i found is 8GB 256 SSD intel And it’s running windows 10 does the Brand of it matter if i want to write code in it, because people say it’s for office work

What is your budget anyways?

For laptops I personally find hp, dell, lenovo to be the “main brands”. These are brands that have built laptops that have held together in my hands and in my friends and families hands without many hardware failures.

Apple is the brand where you will pay a lot and not get much back in terms of raw stats, but you will get a high quality machine. You pay for that quality though.

Generally if your budget allows it you need really just need 8gb+ RAM. 8GB is cutting things kind of close, but if your just starting out your fine. Beyond that get the best you can get in terms of CPU performance while staying under your budget. Go “big name brands” over others, last thing you want is hardware failure. Even if this means you have to pay more for similar stats.

If you have some computers in mind you can always ask for opinions on the comparisons.

You don’t need a crazy tricked out expensive machine to start learning.

@Dood Hey there, welcome to the FCC forum! :slight_smile:

I use a Surface Pro 4 with a Dual-core i5, 8GB of RAM, and 256 GB of SSD storage. For me, the specs runs Microsoft Edge, VS Code, OneNote, and even Hitfilm Express (the video editor I use for my YouTube Channel) with relative competence.

Of course, everyone’s use is different, and your mileage will vary based on your workload but what I’m trying to say is that sometimes you don’t need flashy specs or brand-names to get a great machine. If you want my advice, I recommend looking at websites such as Windows central, The Verge, and Wirecutter to find solid buying advice for specific machines.

Also, a quick word about AMD VS intel. AMD is fair value when you get 4th Gen Ryzen of any kind whether it be Ryzen 5, 7, or even 3. Same with intel, if its 10th-gen or better, also pay attention to the i3. It’s competent but you might be better off with a i5 or better.

Oh, and about those Macs if your budget allows, they are surprisingly fair value, but I would recommend holding off on them for now. There’re in the middle of a processor transition and unless your workloads suit the M1 you might have to settle for an intel processor.

Happy coding!
