Laptop for Developers Tags: Laptops Hard Drives Last response: October 21, 2009 12:44 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share joy_live October 16, 2009 5:44:07 AM Hi, I am looking for a laptop to run visual studio 2008, sql server 2005, sql profiler and rational software modeller parallely. I also want to watch movies, may be play a little game http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/biggrin.gif I do not want a big laptop, a 14 inch would be good Main issue is portability and good RAM, HDD and processor power, DVD r/w is also required. Please suggest some notebooks based on these. Currently I am using Dell E6400- but from what I hear there are serious problems with Dell - battery wear out, Hard disk crash, bad sectors and so on. Please suggest laptops based on the above criterion.
