Recommended Desktop/Laptop Specs for Data Science


Hi All,

I’m hoping to study and transition into data science after having worked in database development and having a baby about 2 years ago. I’m eager to get into this field and need advice on what would be the best pc/laptop specs to ensure adequate computing power to study and practice data science. I’ve read elsewhere that some recommend getting a robust desktop to remotely connect from a cheap laptop. Your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


Hi @Daniness,

I would also recommend what has already been suggested, to get a cheap laptop and connect it to a remote desktop. But if you have a bigger budget, you can skip getting a cheap one and directly move on to a high compute one.
