Pro Programmers and Their Machines
The most important thing for a professional programmer is getting their professional setup right. Their computer is an alternate universe that they would happily live in. What may seem hi-tech to us is incredibly easy and relaxing for them. And it's amazing to see how life-changing programs take shape from such little laptops.
We thought we will dig into the finer details of how the programmers make the magic happen by conducting a poll. We asked 723 programmers which laptop they use from a list of options. The most popular of the lot is HP Spectre X360 with 25.17% votes, followed by Apple Macbook Pro (19.92%) and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Laptop (17.70%). Next on the list are Microsoft Surface Pro 8 (6.92%), Google Pixelbook Go (6.78%), Apple MacBook Air M1 (6.22%), Microsoft Surface Book 2 (6.09%), and MacBook Pro 13-Inch (3.32%). The last ones on the list are Asus Chromebook Flip C436F/C436FA (5.12%) and LG Gram 17 (2.77%).
