I'm looking to replace my existing development laptop (java, .net, android apps, etc). I usually run a number of virtuals (some windows and some linux) so at least 32GB RAM is a must. Here is what I am looking for in general:
- 32GB RAM (or more)
- i7 processor
- 17" screen ( or larger )
- keyboard should have 10-key number pad and have great tactile feedback (not like my kids' cheap laptops that I can barely type on)
- Linux as the host OS (it can come with Windows as long as I can upgrade to Linux and all the components are compatible)
What I don't really care about:
- weight (if it weighs 10 pounds or more, that's fine)
- high-end graphics capabilities, although I will want to drive a couple or three monitors for all these virtuals, so maybe I need something decent. However, I won't be gaming with it.
- touch screen
Does such an animal exist?
