#1

Before taking the Linux plunge, try reading this new approach to installing Ubuntu 18.04 desktop version

Some of my friends using HP, they are very good developers.


#3

Any laptop will do in as much his RAM is upto 4gb and hdd is upto 400gb


#4

I would throw my laptop out the window if it only had 4 GB. I want at least 16, ideally 32.


#5

I would hope to catch it before it breaks into little pieces and install Linux :slight_smile:

My desktop only has 8 Gb and seldom uses more than 4Gb.

It kind of depends on what and how much programming you want to do with it no?

I imagine that with a localhost server, database, IDE, graphics apps, development and backup files etc. 4GB would easily get cramped for space. Though I guess USB drives could help a lot.


#7

Yes with everything I have running I’m usually using about 11GB of RAM. That is running Linux by the way :slight_smile:

USB sticks to expand memory is fine in theory, but in practice I’m not sure if it’s fast enough compared to RAM.
