I have a $1,500 budget for a new laptop. Build or buy?

Question by : I have a ,500 budget for a new laptop. Build or buy?
So my employer is moving servers to the cloud. They are giving me a $ 1,500 budget for a work at home laptop. Now, I love to play video games in my free time, and I do database programing for a living. So I will need a decently powerful laptop. I don’t know how to build a computer, but I have heard that you can build a more powerful computer cheaper than buying a brand name. I know a lot about processors and all the inner workings of a computer so buying good parts will be no problem. Is the fee for someone else to put it together less than the money I will save not buying a brand name?

Best answer:

Answer by Madhu Perera
I would buy a laptop, and 64-bit if your database programming applications support 64bit 🙂
