10 best Laptops for Developers in 2019

As a developer, or learning to code it’s important to have good equipment before starting it, so the main important object is a Laptop, as using laptop from past 5-7 years I have come across many powerful, beautiful, lightweight, etc. Here are the 10 best Laptops for Developers.

We have tried and tested a lot of laptops and here is a list of the few great laptops for the Programmers, whether you’re programming in Programming Languages like C, C++, Java, Python, etc or you’re are a web developer trying your hands at HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.

For all this task you obviously need a laptop with a great processor, as this comes handy while compiling the beautiful code you write or awesome website you have made, so whatever your budget is you should always aim for the best processor your budget can buy.

And then there’s a memory, and you need at least 8GB (wink Android Studio) and it needs to be fast, so considering SSD is the best option as it’ll make compiling your apps, and saving your important files and opening apps fast and save time for other productive work.

You necessarily don’t need the fastest graphics card available in the market for your laptop, and you can save that money and put in a better processor, if you’re in gaming then you can add some good graphics card according to your gaming needs.

Now coming to the most important part is the keyboard, do your self a favor and invest a little extra for the keyboard of your laptop, after all, that’s all you’re going to do with this laptop.

As a software developer, which should be easy to carry around and have a good battery life (while coding in coffee shops), there are tons of options and it’s overwhelming to choose from this so here are my top picks for the laptops which you can consider.
