Budget laptop for productivity suggestion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm a university student and looking for a laptop just for programming (probably Android studio with phone emulation at maximum), small video/photo editing and play low setting moba games on it(like LoL, DOTA). I attached a picture on a model I'm eyeing on since that model is within budget of under $500  Can it run what I needed without a problem especially the coding one ? Thanks in advance!1305977408_Screenshot_20200120-1608402.thumb.png.3a0d178fb2e24ef2fd2e8a69f015936c.png

@renasance1 I am a full time developer and when im on the go I use the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 2 in 1 I have been using for about 1 year now and have had no problems.

 

I occasionally use android studio the only thing the ingratiated Graphics doesn't support virtual devices so you would need to debug on android device plugged in.

 

My brother when visiting also manages to use this laptop to play Hurtworld and surprisingly fortnight at 60+ FPS low settings i think :/ 

 

I usually have a lot of multiple applications running with no problem, Chrome, Atom, Putty, Word (YUK) and others

 

So its my goto when im going into the office or leaving the house :D

 

You can get different specs but i have.

Intel Core i3 6th Gen

4gb DDR4 RAM (I upgraded to 8gb Though)

 

If you want to read full specs see them here, Dells website wasn't very clear

Nope. I'm in the Asia region. I don't mind the weight of the laptop if it's heavy or not. Battery life maybe around 4 hrs is good for casual use and I would settle for 1080p display. Don't mind how many inches.

Wow. I3 6th gen can do that? Because right now I'm using a desktop with g4560, 4 gb 2400 ram and 7200rpm hard drive and for now I'm using it for Ionic 4 dev. PC can't even run the app on web while I'm typing some code in sublime. Every key I press takes some time to register. Totally ruins the work mood. Just wanted to see my app having minimal but continuous changes 😂
