Searching for the “Perfect” Laptop!
As a consultant and a software developer, we need to be road warriors. Hence the need for a laptop. With the work that we do at MILL5, we are often called upon to do some amazing things quickly. That means productivity is extremely important. Then those amazing things that I spoke of are usually big things like “Make my entire application go really, really, really fast while doing millions of things”. All of this means that we need killer laptops.
