    Best solution: cheap ~35k laptop for presentation or quick tasks. and a powerful desktop for real work.

    If you must do with one, buy those 60k+ laptops.


    Buying ~30k laptop (or those god awful netbooks) only without desktop is stupidity.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    Don't know about what others will tell but I was doing fine with desktop till the final year come along with numerous projects. Now I need a laptop so badly that lately I've been often thinking about selling off my desktop rig and getting a laptop as early as possible.

    The config is lying upon the fact that what are you intending to do with that laptop. The thing is the more resource hungry IDE you will use, the more powerful laptop will serve you better. For general developing(including C, PHP etc) purpose, a 2nd gen. i3 will do. If you're into Java, Andriod developing, Matlab, C# or ASP.NET(with VS2010) and have to deal with databases like MS SQL/Oracle etc then you might want to get at least a 2nd gen. i5. Again, the platform won't always invoke for a powerful laptop. For instance, I've seen people(including Mr.Hasin Hayder) leaving Netbeans 7 for PHP dev. just because it needs a hell amount of resources than any other versions before. Almost every platforms however have their liter and heavier IDEs. Oh, and never forget to get a 15.6" laptop. Yes, they're a bit heavier and cause hassles in portability but people around me who've been getting their hand dirty in several developing sides for ages now keep telling me to get a 15.6" laptop with a numeric keypad to the least. According to them, its ideal(mandatory, to be more precise) for developing chores.

    But if you really have to stick with your desktop for the time being I'd strongly suggest to get a SSD. No matter how resource hungry the IDE is, it'll be run near to twice as fast than before. The blazing fast response of each IDE let alone other apps has been keep amazing me from the very day I got this M4.

    a CSE student must have a laptop in this load shedding prone summer . depending on the budget get a branded laptop with at least 4GB of ram . get an i3 , its sufficient in my thinking . 14" or 15.6" depends on ur taste .

    I was thinking about getting a cheap laptop and upgrading my PC for the time being,since a high config laptop requires a whole lot more money than the equivalent of a desktop.Now i am kind of confused which would be a better solution.Load shedding is a genuine factor.I need to keep that in mind for sure.Being a first year student(who hasn't yet attended a class) I cant say for sure in which platform i am going to get involved into.I do have c/c++ and maybe java in mind now.
