Hello community!

I am travelling atm and I want to try to make money while I am travelling. I met quite a few people who do that and i want to give it a go and have some ideas in my head.
From translational work to some internet marketing, i would even consider to learn about web design and coding.

Obviously it is important for me that the laptop is light, not too big and has a good battery life. I am travelling atm for a long time, so these aspects are prett important.

A friend of mine said, if I want to get serious about and work with the laptop and maybe also do some coding and stuff like that, I should at least go for 4gb Ram and an intel quadcore.

I look for 2nd models here atm, because it allows me to buy a better laptop for less money, since I have a very limited budget.

I have 3 offers atm which are all in the same price range. All 3 are 2nd hand and for each of them i would have to pay 400 US$.

The models are

A) Asus Zenbook UX305

B) Dell XPS 13

C) Lenovo Thinkpad E450

These are my options. The poimts mentioned above are the only things that really matter to me.
Lightweight, good travel size, good battery, specs good enough for work (including coding and webdesign).

The Asus Zenbook looks fantastic, the only con is here that it nust has 2 cores, so it might not good enough.

The Lenovo Thinkpad has good specs, but is heavier.


What do you guys think? Please help me! :)

Tom

B , the dell one.

but if you want to make money from coding and webdesign, it isnt that you learn something quick and work everywhere with 0 experience.
be realistic , but good luck:)

Thanks for your answer. And no worries..i am super realistic about it.
I know it is a long way to learn how to code.. but every story has to start with a small step from 0, right ;).
Even if it wouldnt help me now or this or the next year..it is a skill that could come handy in the future someday..

And the other two would be useless? Is it correct that the 2 cores in the asus zenbook would not be enoigh for coding?

And the lenovo one seems quite good as well with its i7 quadcore and 8gb ram...

MERGED QUESTION
Question from tom.weber05 : "Asus Zenbook UX305 good enough for coding?"

Hey comunity!

I look for a good laptop to work on while i am travelling.
This one looks really good, but it has just a Dualcore. Would it still be good enough for coding and work like that?
