Hello! I am on search of a laptop suitable for programming tasks. I may be a Computer Science and am planning ahead for a PC up to the minimum requirements.
...Something below $500 or around ₦100,000- ₦150,000.
I need a high quality type, which would have a life span of over 6 years as the minimum.
Suggestions on RAM, HDD size would be appreciated for the course; do I require a large RAM?
I think I'd also need one which would stay on for three-five hours on battery.

Hi.

If you're using virtual machines, then having large RAM would be great as the more RAM you have, the better VMs will run.

With $500, I don't think you can get anything "high quality".
Does your College/University have requirements, if so, could you post them here?
