I've recently just changed up my laptop into a duel boot, lucky enough it came with amd chip and radeon card. It's not much but it had sure helped me for development its only temp until I save up for a beasty laptop.

But then again, just then other day I have a bug with my linux and it's made me think twice about develiping just on my laptop.. and maybe investing in a desktop high tower at least for main development just in case if things go crap again!

Even I have windows for gaming, I did try using windows for programming and I've found I just cant go back, I love my linux mint tessa xfe edition as its a lot more stripped down than cinnamon so even faster.

It's also given me some insight on how heavy some desktop programs really are.

I think for development is most important with a good kick ass processor and ram and a hd or ssd, but then If you want gaming you would be looking at almost twice the double and a good duel graphics card.

My situation is that I'll be self employed soon enough but using my main desktop as main development and then a touchscreen laptop for easy bits I think will work out for me 😊

Which games you looking to run?

Not so much bothered about graphics, but what caught my attention was Chrome on Mint + Windows, as well as the difference of Visual Studio, just running Midori (lightweight browser)
