3 Best Laptops for Coders in 2021

April 17, 2022

Being a reader of LifeOfCoding, I’m sure you’ll love a collection of laptops that coders can utilize to better their productivity. I’ll be sharing a few laptops here that any coder who’s looking for a new laptop can take a look at and consider buying.

So, without any further ado, let’s dive right in.

#1 HP Spectre x360

HP Spectre x360 has seen a considerable spec upgrade in 2020 from HP. As you may know, they already make some of the best laptops out there, especially the HP Spectre line-up, and now they’ve made it even better with these awesome upgrades that this laptop has become our #1 pick for this list.

You can either purchase it in a 10th gen i5 CPU or an i7 CPU, depending on your needs and tasks that you’ll perform over it, such as programming and maybe even occasional gaming. For gaming, I’d say get the i7 version for sure, because once you decide to game, you don’t want to face lags and other annoying stuff that makes you hate your laptop altogether.  I’ve also done an article over at my blog about cheap laptops that can run Fortnite for people who’re into Fortnite but can’t afford those fancy gaming laptops.

You can get it in either 8GB of RAM or 16GB of RAM, and I’d recommend again, that you go with the 16GB ram version- as I personally like to upgrade everything I can to the max whenever getting a new laptop, so I do not need to upgrade it down the road for at least next five years or so.

This way, when you get the maximum specs at once, the laptop will last for longer for one. It will also give you a lot of pleasure when you finally upgrade to a new technology of processors after 5-6 years of using the old technology. The performance upgrade just blows you away once you get a new laptop after so many years!

#2 Google Pixelbook

Google’s Chromebooks and PixelBooks are one of my favorite devices to look at! They’re sleek and look neat and just simplistic. Their OS is usually the same story;

elegant and simple! 

This Pixelbook has i7 7th gen CPU, which is not something that I like about it because there’s 10th gen laptops out there that are way more efficient than the older 7th gen CPU, less power consumption and more performance.

It has 16GB of RAM and a 512GB of SSD storage, and both of these things are my favorites about it. Although the 7th gen CPU is old, it still kicks ass! Because I’ve been using a 7th gen i7 7700HQ laptop for like three years now- never had a problem.

There’s another thing I do not like about the pixel book, and that’s its price. There’s a few hundred bucks cheaper laptop called Helios 300, and I’d get that any day over this one if you ask me.

#3 MacBook Pro 13” 2020

For one reason or the other, MacBooks have been the favorite laptops that every programmer and web designer and developer, basically all types of creative people move towards MacBooks, maybe because they’re functional and get things done, and there are no hangs? Because when your face hangs and glitches all the time, for one, it frustrates you, and second, it just wastes your time, and time is money as you’ve heard countless times in your life.

Anyways, MacBook Pros. Who doesn’t know them?

The 13 inch MacBook Pro is one of the best laptops you can get for any type of productivity work, especially for coding and programming. Because it is so small that it can fit on all the bags you’d have to lie around, you can take this puppy on traveling if you want to program on the go, and you can just sit anywhere and place it on your lap and start writing the code for your next project!

These tend to have fantastic battery life if you do not do anything substantial that demands CPU and GPU power such as video editing and rendering, especially in Premiere Pro.

cobol code

COBOL (Common Business-Oriented Language) is a programming language that is primarily used in business and administrative systems. It's known for its readability and usage in handling large volumes of data. Although it might be difficult to cover all aspects of COBOL in a single response, I can provide you with a brief introduction and an example code snippet to help you get started. COBOL programs are composed of a series of paragraphs that contain statements. Each statement starts with a verb and ends with a period. Here's a simple example of a COBOL program that calculates the sum of two numbers: cobol Copy code IDENTIFICATION DIVISION. PROGRAM-ID. ADDITION. DATA DIVISION. WORKING-STORAGE SECTION. 01 NUM1 PIC 9(5). 01 NUM2 PIC 9(5). 01 SUM PIC 9(6). PROCEDURE DIVISION. DISPLAY "Enter the first number: ". ACCEPT NUM1. DISPLAY "Enter the second number: ". ACCEPT NUM2.

My honest Review of Surfshark VPN or ISPS protector

  VPN:  https://get. surfshark .net/aff_ c?offer_id=926&aff_id=19425 Antivirus:  https://get. surfshark .net/aff_ c?offer_id=934&aff_id=19425 Incogni: offer_id=1017&aff_id=19425 Helps you to secure your data online by using VPNS to hide what you do online.   The basic point of VPN is to protect what you do online this could be because of your career or shyness or many someone fears being reported to the government body for why they may feel the need to do it plus for some jobs being able to swap IPS can be a powerful thing to show you are working from say USA than where you are based in say Italy so showing IP can show you as well the internet very different as well since somethings are illegal depending where you live such as like Chat GPT is now not allowed to work on it  having IP from somewhere it is accepted is a good way to make of this powerful software.
