Hi All,
I want to buy a new laptop for my OH for Christmas, but to keep it a secret I'm very limited on what questions I can ask.
I know so far its needs to be a min: i5 , 15'6 screen, not sure what else! he needs to have multiple programs open, use tool like firefox etc.
I haven't got a clue, and its a big purchase! Can someone give me advice please? Thanks.

Don’t buy it would be my advice.

Whilst I appreciate the thought I’d not be happy someone else buying a laptop for my development work based on recommendations from others.

Web developer is also very generic. My apps end up on the web. I require a six core processor, 32 GB ram and wouldn’t want anything below 4K as a screen nor a 1TB SSD.

It is a very big purchase, but unless your OH has been specific about what he would want, don’t even attempt it.

Do you know what operating system they use currently? That's probably the first question that needs answering.

MacOS, Windows or Linux?
