(it's been really long time since it was the last time I've posted here...)
I'm sysadmin/programmer looking for a new computer. I've owned pretty good laptops in the past. Yes, I've had macbook pro too and, to be honest, this isn't something I would decide to ever buy again. Its just that I'm too "attached" to visual studio IDE and other apps that are windows only. If I want unix based coding, I would just connect to one of my server stations and do stuff there.
there are few things I would really like my new computer to have:
1. 4th gen intel cpu (haswell processors)
2. AT LEAST fullHD (1920x1080) screen (new ultrabooks have/will have higher resolutions- samsung ativ 9 pro, asus infinity 2nd gen, lenovo yoga v2,...)
3. i doubt i'll ever use it for gaming, maybe for a flash game here and there but that's about it
4. good battery
5. 13'' or more of screen size.
anything else (if that still isn't enough??) is just a matter of being more bulky or pricey. (above 4 things are very important, hdd capacity isn't, ram isn't either, upgradability is a plus). Currently, I'm mostly looking for Ultrabooks BUT,.. would I need it? I don't care about mobility- at the end I will end up buying very good backpack, add extra cables in it, power supply and what not so it will be heavy no matter the 0,5kg or 0,1kg of laptop. Actually, I will decide if I'll go for a good specs based laptop or buy a good ultrabook based on your replies.
So please help me out here, will you?
