Mine is over a year and a half. Lenovo Ideapad 330S. It holds 2 256GB SSD disks, one or software one for content. It originally contained only 8GB and that was only just enough. Every now and then it was too little. Therefor I added 4GB, to get to the max for this laptop.
Now it is running smoothly again.
Do take into account that for performance of your Mendix IDE, project size does matter. See Jim's recent post: https://forum.mendix.com/link/questions/100515
I have a Dell Laptop that is around 2 years old. I will paste specs below. In my experience, having a solid state drive makes a significant different. My laptop has a 256GB solid state drive. Also, I don’t run Teams – but I do run Slack. I am able to be very productive with this laptop.
Hope that helps,
Jap, the growing project size is definitly a factor. From the discussion in the other thread I read, that even more CPU does not solve the problem. :-(
I’m running on a Mac, but using Windows 10 under Parallels for Mendix development work.
A solid state drive and plenty of memory make a difference, and running under Parallels I can assign a fixed number of cores and limit memory to keep the Mac responsive.
