So I am trying to decide on a laptop which will run a ubuntu apache webserver, which does not break the bank.
I am using the webserver as a kind of quiz machine with 50 wireless clients connected concurrently answering questions and submitting answers. Nothing heavy like streaming videos, but each user requests is around 10-30 kb, static pages, one question per page, one jpeg. The users could be using the server all at once.
Anyway, I hear that RAM is very important over anything else but because I am using it for what I am trying to do, I am making sure that I have enough RAM and a SSD drive. The model I am thinking about Lenovo L460:
But the question I want to ask is if the current processor is too weak to handle my project and I should upgrade to the intel core i5 to maximize performance?
