Hi,

I need a recommendation for a good laptop for software development.
It has to have the following:
1. Ubuntu 14.10 run smoothly on it.
2. At least 16GB ram (better if it can have 32GB)
3. 250GB or 500GB SSD
4. Low weight
5. 14''
6. It has to be 1300$ max.


Thanks!

Although there are likely other candidates, I'll suggest looking at the MSI Force 1492 and customizing as you see fit (SSD's, additional ram, etc.) - one thing to note, the "Force" is a bare-bones model and does not come with an OS. If wanting to run Ubuntu, that shouldn't even come into play, unless you want to run windows also.
