• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

I'm new here, i'm looking for a good laptop (the budget is around 1000€, programming, gaming a little bit, and other minor things), so, i was looking on amazon some laptops and i found this https://amzn.to/2vDHWVN , and here in Italy it's 1050€, with the 16gb model, i want to know if i can handle the situation with some linux distro(arch and others), like for drivers, and others things, and, maybe there are better laptops... (this will be my first laptop)

Thx for the help

i think its quite hi spec; the 16gig is the ram . i've installed linux onto old laptop with barely mega bytes of ram. hd of one terra byte(huge) and thens there's ssd of 128 gig.

With just 128 gig there would be room for both Windows 10 (around 30 gig ) leaving enough for linux. The cpu specs must be in the small print ?
