Laptop For General Purposes And Extensive Programming
Major requirement includes surfing and programming. I want a laptop to last atleast 5 years and should have a great battery and no heating troubles. I have inclination towards Apple macbook pro md10hn/a, but it is very old version, which makes me wonder to but it or to not buy it. My price range is less than 55k. Hope you have some answers for me.Please also provide some alternatives. I am looking at asus zenbook ux305, but it has some heating problems I read.
Hi, the zen book comes with a core M cpu which is very weak and will not really last you 5 years or anywhere close to that tbh. In this budget if you want something powerful which will last you around 5 years i'd suggest going for the latest HP Pavilion 15 P207TX K8U19PA (Ci7/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Win8.1/ 2GB Graphic) comes with 5th generation i7 cpu . 8GB ram and graphics card also and it can handle anything you need for 5 years. As an Alternative you can even go for Lenovo IdeaPad Z51 70 80K60021IN (Ci5/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Win8.1/ 4GB Graphic) which is very similar in specs but comes with an i5 instead of i7 but has 8GB SSD for caching which will make boot times and tasks faster and as a bonus also comes with Full HD screen which is way better for programming.
I want display size to be 13 inches therfore more inclined towards md10hn/a.
And ideapad Z51 70 has very bad reviews on lenovo's website itself from users. Somesay battery can't last more than 4hours, died in just year, screen illumination is not proper. That has made me to not think about it.
Well if 13 inch is an requirement in this price range the Apple MacBook Air 2015 MJVM2HN/A (Ci5/ 4GB/ 128GB/ Mac OS X Yosemite) is the best option. comes with 5 gen i5 and SSD its extremely light has great battery life an will lat you 5 years.
