Hey People,


this is my first Post i hope i do everything right. Well, i already have a Desktop Gaming PC with enough Power, i have a Tablet and an Smartphone and a few Laptops.
As you already read, i want to buy an Netbook for Programming, a small Laptop would be nice too, but it has to be as small as possible and still have enough Power to programm on.
I know, that i wont need much Power for Programming, but i'll run a few VM's and need a few gigs for them. So atleast 4GB would be really nice. But now the hard part on choosing it,
i would like to have more then Intels HD Graphic Chip, and the APUs from AMD are.. well.. not so nice i think, i have a 2. Desktop PC with A6 APU, and i wouldnt recommend it.

I want to spend about 700€.

I have already found a few kinda good solutions i think, but i can imagine there are better solutions for me.


The OS isnt important, i'll install Linux and Windows anyways, so a Netbook / Small Laptop without OS is fine too.



(I dont really want that Touchscreen, and Tablet mode Features, but it still was the cheapest solution with the best hardware i found.)


Now in short again:


Budget is ~700€


i5 or higher,

4GB RAM or more,

Windows, Linux or no OS,

Nvidia or AMD Graphic solution
Less then 15" Display (If possible Full HD ofcourse, but not important)

I hope you guys can help me find something better, i mean, if i just take the hardware from the Lenovo (Link), and remove the Touchscreen stuff, it would be perfect and should cost about 50-100€ less. Or am i so wrong?
