Black Friday is the time where you consider to buy a new laptop and finds that laptop companies don't know how to make one for programmers. Either they are shit or they are gamer laptop that have 2~4 GB of video memory you will never use and costs thousands of dollars.
Is it hard to make one with good CPU, RAM and a SSD without concluding that you are a hardcore gamer and you need an expensive video card along with it?

    I agree. Sadly devs seem to be a niche market. There's much more money in gaming

    Business lines of laptops sometimes have that.

    @ElixirX ThinkPad is not a bad idea, but it is expensive around here. :(
