I'm looking to buy a new laptop used mainly for heavy programming and needs to be able to play HD videos without trouble.
As far as I was able to find (and I'm open to better suggestions), I have the following requirements:
- Budget: ~$1000
- intel i5 CPU (HQ vs U? what do i really need?)
- display: 15+ in; Full HD (1920x1080)
- RAM: 8+ GB
- Storage: 1 TB HDD
One important thing to add is that I already have a 250 GB SSD that i would like to install in the new laptop (SSD where the HDD is, and the HDD + adapter instead of the DVD drive, for example). Any recommendations are welcome.
I just don't know much about these things so I can't make an educated decision. Any recommendations are welcome.
