Suggest me new laptop with SSD and min 8 GB ram and >= i5 processor
Please suggest me some laptop with configuration defined in title
I also read about 16 GB optane and 1 TB HDD , is the performance same as with SSD ?
Manish - what is going to be the primary function of the laptop?
SSDs are noticeably faster than HDD. Once you've experienced SSDs you can't go back to HDD.
Development. I should be able to work on android studio, eclipse comfortably
SSD are better but my only confusion right now is
16 GB Optane with 1 TB HDD vs 250 GB SSD
which one is better performance wise
Go with the first option. My laptop has SSD and it is already running out of space. You don't need SSD unless you are doing heavy code compiling.
I agree with Mohit. Optane + HDD looks like a good option for a development machine. You're going to need lot of storage and you'll do good with a decent quality HDD.
This is what I have purchased now acer aspire 515 1 TB HDD, 4 GB Ram, I5 8th Generation which was 34k
Now I replaced HDD with Samsung EVO 860 256 GB, M2 Slot with 16 GB Optane Memory and enhanced RAM TO 8 GB and now laptop running like a champ boottime 2-3 secs and eclipse project build up around 5 sec which was around 60 secs with my old laptop
total cost 48 K, which was originally above 70 k with these specification
