What are the Best Laptops for Developers?
The standard inside the company is either a Dell XPS or a Macbook Pro. Currently my preferred one is the Dell XPS15 with 32 GB RAM running Linux. For the graphical designers a Macbook is preferred because of the good graphical apps like Sketch.
But any laptop with plenty of RAM, a good SSD and a decent keyboard is OK. Because a laptop should last for a couple of years, you should shoot for at least 16 GB of RAM, preferably for 32 GB. You might not need the 32 GB right now but in 2 years you will.
If you go for Macs, you should know that the keyboard on the Touchbar Macbook Pro sucks: not enough travel and no decent Esc key are showstoppers for developers. You need a pre Touchbar version.
If you are looking for a laptop in the Rs 60000 price bracket that is capable of handling programming tasks , office work and is also good for entertainment, then you have a number of options to look at.
