    I'm partial to Lenovo ThinkPad's and/or Dell Latitudes. (business class PCs for better build and repairability.) Windows is my OS of choice, sometimes with Xubuntu or Ubuntu GNOME riding shotgun.

    Give us a price range.

    1. Search for Dell Precision M4600 on Amazon/eBay. Find one for ~$400 with an Intel i7 (QM) / 16GB RAM / 1080p IPS / Backlight Keyboard / Nvidia Quadro. These models are very good workhorses, especially for a budding programmer. Excellent build quality and reliability!

    2. Keep Windows or go for a Linux distribution such as Ubuntu. You will need some form of Linux experience afterall.

    3. Install Eclipse IDE for Java Programming. Once you get the fundamentals down, you should give C++ a look. Don't learn bad practices and try to code in C/++ haha.

    4. Try this out: http://www.amazon.com/Head-First-Jav...pUvbUpU3114726

    5. Good luck ;)))

    Is it just me or are Thinkpads / Precisions attractive? Seems like most people associate the design with clunkers :O
