toshiba satellite p50. but with 17" and an SSD instead of 2x HDD
8/10 could do with better ventilation and the bluray is loud
avedis33844ymy Lenovo Y-50 is 8/10. though off the shelf it comes with 8GB ram. i extended it to 16GB
@amjo Good call I did the same. DDR3 is dirt cheap anyways
2012 MacBook air 13" with an i7, 8GB ram, 256 GB hd. It's showing its age. When I got it, 9/10, now more like 6/10.
Dell Latitude e5470
- Quad i7
- 180GB SSD
- Dock and two external monitors.
They let me pick it out for the team and I worked in a bundle discount direct from Dell for the purchasing dept. I can knock back an entire productive day on a single charge even with a VM running.
It was a 10/10 when I got it and still easily a 9/10. SSD size was my only regret.
HP EliteBook 8460p
Second gen i5, 4GB, 250GB HDD
In 2011 it was a 6/10, but five years on it's 1/10, because although I just use it for VPN and RDP, it's slow, has bad WiFi connectivity at times, and the keyboard is partially faulty...
@DarkMukke I don't regret the SSD, I regret choosing a small size.
180GB would be plenty for a single Linux OS but I have the work requirement of running Windows and chose to install Linux in a VM for most Dev tasks. This thing is perpetually bouncing around 30GB free and often falling much closer to full.
