I am looking for a laptop on which I can install linux to do Java development and virtualization. The following configuration comes to my mind.

+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| Processor     | AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 Or Intel i5 or i7 Quad Core |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| Memory        | 16 gb DDR4 or more                           |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| Storage       | 512 gb NVMe or more                          |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| Graphics Card | Low end, since this not a gaming rig         |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| Screen size   | 17 inches                                    |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+
| OS            | Optional to keep cost down.                  |
+---------------+----------------------------------------------+

How much should something like this minimally cost. I am thinking under $1000. Let us collect laptops being sold with similar configurations here.

Look on NewEgg.com: they allow customizing precisely such quantities, when filtering the laptops to display. The exact search is here, and as you can see you can currently get this configuration for under $500.

  • Yes, there search feature is quite feature full. But I did not find a way to additionally filter for NVMe SSDs. I hope they can add that functionality to their web site. – Rahul Khimasia Jan 2 '19 at 13:34
