    Hello,

    I'm planning to buy a new laptop at Christmas, the main use for it will be for Java applications development and few games from time to time, my main concerning will be its performance, battery lifetime and not less than 15" screen, I want something may last for 4 or 5 years without changing, also my budget around 2000$ maximum, I have access to USA or Canada markets, any recommendations for some laptop models?

    Thanks

    Applications for what platform? AFAIK, if you want to develop for iOS you can only do so on a macbook.

    It looks good, however, I'm not interested in 2 in 1 device, what about Lenovo I heard it has good performance & battery life nut a little bit pricy

    Lenovo's are built like tanks. I just cant get past their looks. IBM all over again. They need to step up their design game.

    I agree. They are built very well. But I had an IBM thinkpad in 2001 when I was selling insurance, the lenovos now look essentially identical.

    For a laptop that is going to be used for work, I suggest a business notebook for its better dependability and after-sales support. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a good pick for combining quality, business features, and enough power for mild gaming. It seems hard to go wrong. You might check the Lenovo Outlet to get a better deal, or eBay. There is nothing wrong with saving a few dollars going the refurbished route if it was refurbished by the manufacturer and is covered under warranty by the manufacturer.
