the article is very subjective. every person has its own needs and requirements from the computer. many people take into account also the design, price vs performance, some other people are using the laptop/computer for making digital drawings, some other are using just for doing presentations in power point....
for me, to do some coding the clevo laptops are the best. they have the best performance for the price.
but i have recently tried the acer predator and its design and interface with the user is really very good. it is the best that i have ever used. maybe even better than the alienware laptops.
i know some people love the iMacs laptops for coding, but i hate them. for me they are not very ergonomic
