i'm a handicapped programmer. i want to dual boot between Linux (not certain which one - Ubuntu/mint/something else) and windows (for games and dragon naturally speaking). I currently think a gaming laptop is probably a safe way to go to get a good/fast machine. I'm having trouble finding the right brand (I know that's very opinionated). Currently I have:
Alienware 17” gaming laptop
asus stric scar
msi back gt62 vrdo
Can you think of a couple others?
