I am a novice when it comes to hardware world. If this is not the appropriate site, I request the moderators to redirect me to the correct one and close this question :).

My objectives pertaining to the laptop:

  • Configuration to suit development needs:

      16-32 GB RAM
      1+TB SSD
      i7/AMD equivalent
      Motherboard that can handle all the above
      Possibility to add RAM, in the future


    Only ONE os - RHEL(enterprise or developer, I haven't decided). Dell laptops come loaded with Ubuntu and are 'RHEL certified'. I didn't understand what they meant, also, I want only RHEL, to begin with.

    What would save a 'considerable' amount - buying from the provider with above features preconfigured or simply buy the hardware without OS(bare metal) and then install RHEL by myself? If there isn't much difference, I would prefer to buy from the provider.

The specs you posted above are anything but cost-effective. A better way to choose a laptop is to decide what price range you can afford or you are willing to pay up to. In any case, you can find a list with compatible Red Hat laptops here.
