In the market for a cheap laptop.
Primary use will be programming using Atom editor or Sublime text. Need to run Laravel Homestead via Vagrant/Virtualbox. OS wise I will be looking to chuck Ubuntu Gnome or similar on it.
I've seen X201 for about £100 and X230 for about £185 both upgradeable to 120GB SSD for £30 and both come with 4GB ram (upgradable to 16?). Currently running a Lenovo 3000 N200 which doesn't seem to want to play ball with Homestead.
Is the performance gain worth the xtra ££?
Thank you for any useful advice.
