I am looking for a laptop which can withstand

  1. Hadoop multi node installation
  2. Sqoop queries.
  3. Db's like Oracle or MySQL
  4. Eclipse IDE for JAVA.
  5. Documentation work(MSWord,MSExcel,MSPowerpoint).
  6. VMWare

All these things will be running mostly at same time. I have 2 options:-

  1. i5 with 8GB RAM.
  2. i7 with 8GB RAM.

Which has sufficient power and memory for these tasks?

Budget: 45k INR (~670 USD)

  • If you're running all this software at one time, you'll need a very powerful CPU (mostly for VMWare and Eclipse) and equally powerful RAM to go with it. That means, in my opinion, at least and i7 and at least 16GB memory. Other than that, what physical requirements do you have? A certain number of USB ports, a specific video port, screen size, etc? – Adam Aug 3 '16 at 17:38

  • @Adam Thanks a lot.Right now my main concern is learning Hadoop and its component.In that regards,it is all i need,i think.If you have some other criteria in your mind for running all these,please,do specify. – NeoWelkin Aug 4 '16 at 6:12
