    Programming what?
    Generally I would suggest MacBook Pro if you can afford it, absolutely no problems during 3+ years.

    What are you developing?
    Price range?
    You gonna use Windows, Nix or do you need a Mac?

    There's too many variables for such a vague question my dude.

    a desktop

    Arduino board.

    Unless you can enlighten us on your "programming" requirements, I suspect nothing more then basic logic handling.

    Programming front-end app with react and other backend app, doing editing video and some little rendering in 3d and other stuff. Price range could be 1,5/2K €. I already have a MacBook Pro mid 2014 but I need something more powerful atm. I will use Linux and not Windows.

    Last year I went on a trek to find a laptop with an 8750 (intel) in it. This gave me 12 cores (HT obviously). This set me back 800 USD on sale. Then I added SSD 1TB and 16GB ram. So around 1100 USD total.

    It is an Asus FX504:

    It has held up this last year. It is almost out of warranty. It plays game reasonably well. The 12 cores really makes things compile fast.

    @JhonDoe dont know, i always use 42 at the end because usually there is one ElPapi already in almost every service

    @ElPapi42 looks like you're the only papi in this town. And yah, I can imagine a "elpapi" in many other communities. Nevertheless I found strange to have a "ElPapi" already here, that's why I asked in the first place.

    I‘m very happy with my XPS13 running Ubuntu 18.04..

    The keyboard is AMAZING and performance is grand as well, especially after getting rid of windows.
