Ask HN: Are there any reasonable alternatives to MacBook Pro for developer?
Either the Acer Swift 3 or Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series. Both are Raven Ridge-based. Both are well under $2000. Plenty of extra money left over for all the drives/upgrades/peripherals you want.

Love it
So, I bought this acer swift after about a year of using a chromebook, so I might be a little more enthusiastic about its features than most people. I hated Chrome OS, I'm so glad I came back to Windows. I can finally download stuff again!! It's really fast :D like really fast. It doesn't matter how...

I will try to help you get A good deal on Amazon Prime day
The Best deal for an everyday use laptop is as mentioned the HP 14 Laptop and if you need something with the same horsepower but with a better build quality Acer Swift 3 is a great option with a good discount as well. For 2 in 1 the Lenovo Flex 5 Again with great discount it does have a dim screen but for indoor use, it's a great laptop and if you want something better screen the Acer Spin 5 has a 13.5" 2K 2256 x 1504 IPS Touch with great color accuracy. For a 17.3" Screen option the Acer Aspire 5 A517 Is one of the Few 17.3" screen laptop's in this price range that has a FHD screen again with a decent discount. So far I haven't found decent deals on gaming laptops but I will update the post with any good deals I find.

You don't see value like this in a laptop every day
I try really hard not to do same-day delivery reviews, no matter how great I think the product is because you can never tell on that first day what might go wrong later. However, I am actually confident and happy enough with this one to go for it. If I make amendments later, they won't likely be any...

Not as magical as it seems at first
Taking a look at the specs of this laptop, you would expect it to be incredible, especially for this price point. Taking a look at the online reviews shows that the screen isn't the best, and it takes a few more hits, but even so it looks like an amazing deal. After using it, in my opinion it's wort...

Down to 3 choices - Help me make the final decision
The acer swift 3 is the only one of these laptops with a 4000 series ryzen 7 cpu (4700u). The 3700u is comparable with 10th gen intel i5. The 4700u Acer swift 3 is the way to go
