.NET App Dev Laptop - Recommendations?

By Presidio ·
I am posting this in Software/Web Development because I want the suggestions of fellow developers.

The time has come. I need a new development laptop. Am using .NET 2005 and my current Dell laptop is not handling it well -- just takes too long to bring up forms, code, etc.

I don't care much about weight, 15 in screen will do just fine.

Great laptop for Microsoft .NET development

by hollywood_noel In reply to .NET App Dev Laptop - Rec ...

I've been using Dell laptops for Microsoft .NET devlopment for years, and I have found them to be perfect for the task. I am currently using a Dell Inspiron 8600, an I've been using it for a few years now. I've been developing very large-scale enterprise applications on this laptop, using such technologies as .NET remoting, web services, windows services, SQL Server 2005, etc...all have performed fine.

Don't forget, it is "best" to conduct a disk format every once in awhile. I like to format the drive at least once per year. As long as you keep your Dell drivers install CD, this task should be relatively easy.
