Which Laptops Are For Coding

You don't need to go and buy the most expensive laptop. You don't need to do that. You don't need to go out and buy a MacBook. You don't need to go out and buy a Dell XPS 13 on the drop in those, because those would be my choices if I had to choose because those were my choices when I was shocked. I mean for a laptop, and I was really torn between the Dell XPS series. I like the XPS 13 it came with dual boot Linux on it, which is kind of cool. 

You can put Linux on anything you can dual boot with Windows, so it's not that big of a deal, but it's kind of neat, but it came with it and I had been working in a Mac environment. We're going to toss it right here. I've been working in a Mac environment and I kind of had grown accustomed to, you know, the ergonomics and the gestures and just don't get all hung up on thinking your hardware is not good enough you don't need such an expensive laptop or the best laptop to learn how to code and I know I know where you're coming from.

If you're broke like I was and you didn't have the money to spend on a nice laptop and you know, with all that said, I get it all the cool kids have the Mac books and the stickers and all that stuff and you don't need it to learn how to code. 

You don't need it, just make do with what you have and you'll be fine. And then when you are committed to learning how to code and you've decided OK, I'm a programmer now. I've been doing this for a while. Without a doubt, I am going to pursue this into a career and I want to make sure that I have the right tools to do what I want to do.

 If you want to start freelance and if you want to, if whatever. Whatever you need a computer for to justify the cost, then do that when you're ready and you know that you've been committed for a while to this because you don't want to go and spend a ton of money on you know a really expensive computer and then three-six months later if you're not using it and you know it was kind of a waste, so once you know that you want a nice computer, go out there and buy land and shop around.


Take your time, there are plenty of videos, there's plenty of blog posts, plenty of people that will tell you what's the best computer but. Just use what you need to use to get the job done and don't worry, don't get hung up on having the fancy. All the bells and whistles hardware, it's just not worth it. And with all that said, thanks.
