It depends on what you'll program on. If you are going to ruin virtual machines, you need more memory and more hard disk. If you want to be portable, you need lightweight compact laptop.

Most consumer laptops tend to be with nasty glossy screen. I doubt you'll be able to find non-glossy laptop in this price range. I'd also consider getting external monitor / keyboard / mouse for comfortable work while at home.

Thank you for your response
Languages for web development: Backend (PHP, Javascript, SQL, MongoDB), in future Java/android development
OS : i use Ubuntu GNU/Linux
The things I look for in a laptop for work are:

  • ■ good keyboard
    ■ Lightweight/Portable
    ■ 1080p screen resolution
    ■ decent battery life at least 5 hrs
    ■ as minimum 8gb ram and possibility of upgrade
    ■ I'm not interested in touch screen
Could I recommend that you look at a laptop that meets my needs (CPU, RAM, BRAND)?
and recommend keyboard / mouse for comfortable work (model and brand)
From now, thank you for you help
