As an alternative, I might suggest you get a desktop PC instead if you
plan on doing this project from your home only.
You'll get better performance for a cheaper price, and often more
freedom, and a smaller attack surface (no camera and microphone, no
WiFi, and no Bluetooth by default) too.
If you intend on doing this on the go, then this might not be an option.

Not like you'd get much benefit from taking a laptop with you if you
need lots of processing power and memory, because those suck up battery
life real quick.
But if that's your goal, then take battery capacity into account too,
this will save you from so many problems down the line!


Did you know that?
90% of all emails sent on a daily basis are being sent in plain text, and it's super easy to intercept emails as they flow over the internet?
Never send passwords, tokens, personal information, or other volunerable information without proper PGP encryption!

If you're writing your emails unencrypted, please consider sending PGP encrypted emails for security reasons.
You can find my PGP public key at:

Every good email client is able to send encrypted emails.
If yours can't, then you should consider switching to a secure email client, because yours just sucks.

My recommendations are Claws Mail or NeoMutt.
For instructions on how to encrypt your emails:
