    2) Apple MacBook Air 

    Best Laptop for programming in India

    Apple MacBook Air comes packed Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) that integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and all the other hardware stuff onto a single tiny chip, making it an 8‑core CPU that is 3.5x faster than the previous generation2 and it only uses 1/10th of the power than the last generation to do the work. This Laptop is too powerful and will be an ideal fit for programming. With 5x faster graphics, this Laptop can also be a perfect fit for gaming, graphic designing, video editing, etc. 

    This is also the Laptop that we feel is the best in class for battery backup, as it offers up to 18 hours of battery life. Apple’s MacBook Air is not just meant for programming; this Laptop’s iconic M1 processor has Machine Learning (ML) to automatically modify photos like a professional and make intelligent tools like magic wands and audio filters, which are more true-to-life at auto‑detection and whatnot.

    Specifications

    • Processor – System on a Chip (SoC), Apple M1 chip,8-core CPU with 4 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores, Up to 8-core GPU, 16-core Neural Engine

    Cons

    3) HP Spectre x360 11th Gen Touchscreen Laptop

    HP’s Spectre Series provides a high-end range of laptops, and the latest version of the Spectre Series, that is, the x360, is one power-packed laptop we have on the market. The laptop comes with the latest 11th Gen Intel’s i5 processor, with a decent 16GB RAM, 512GB of SSD, and 32GB of Intel’s iconic Optane Storage system that lets the computer store typically used data and programs closer to the processor.

    It also comes with a full rotational 360-degree folding screen which is a great feature to work with and has biometric security like the fingerprint scanner as well. This laptop is a mix of all the features you want in a single laptop, and we feel that it is one of the best laptops for programming.

    Specifications

    • Processor – 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7
    • RAM – 16GB 
    • Hard Disk – 512GB SSD
    • Display – FHD, multitouch-enabled, IPS, edge-to-edge glass, micro-edge, BrightView, Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, 400 nits, 100% sRGB
    • Operating System – Windows 10 Home

    • Number of Cores – 4

    Pros

    • Light-weighted laptop 
    • 32GB Intel Optane memory enabled, a system acceleration solution installed between the processor and slower storage devices (SATA HDD, SSHD, SSD), allowing the laptop to store commonly used data and programs closer to the processor.
    • Corning Gorilla Glass for sturdy display screen

    Cons

    • This device’s reduced repairability and upgrades lead users to opt for an extended warranty. Accidental protection and extended warranty increase overall cost, and the MacBooks cost, along with the Apple Care plan, makes the Apple Laptops a cheaper option. 
    • The low light camera is not great for face recognition. 

    4) LG Gram Intel Evo 11th Gen Core i7

    We don’t hear the name of a brand like LG when it comes to high-end laptops, but LG did introduce their benchmark LG Gram laptop, which is one of the best laptops for programming. It comes with the latest 11th Gen i7 Processor and 17-inch 2K resolution display with a unique Thunderbolt port 4 that lets you have a 5K resolution display connection which is a feature that you will find on a laptop only. 

    It also comes with DTS:X sound system for an immersive listening experience and is the sturdiest laptop in the segment as it is made of the full metal body made and magnesium alloy, which is used in building aircraft. The durability is passed by the MIL-STD-810G military standard of durability and reliability that checks seven factors from low pressure and dust to high and low temperatures.

    Specifications

    • Processor – 11th Gen Intel i7-1165G7 processor

    • Battery backup of 18 hours (can also touch 19.5 hours under the right settings)

    Cons

    • 2.8 GHz processor with Turbo up to 4.7 GHz, which is less for such a high-end laptop(at least 5GHZ Turbo should’ve been provided) 
    • Storage is 512GB, while such laptops should come equipped with 1TB storage, at least
    • Aftermarket services are not good for LG for their laptops.

    Conclusion

    We hope that our list of these laptops helps you with your programming needs and that you shortlist the one which is ideal for your coding and programming needs.
