Hi there,

I faced the same problem recently and got my laptop upgraded due to initial poor choice of laptop specification.

Here is what I will suggest.

1- Go for a 16 GB RAM version. Though 8GB would suffice but in competitions like on kaggle 8GB would pose a trouble somewhere.

2- If you can go for i7 processors or i5 with multithreading and turbo boost.

3- Go for the ubuntu version of the laptop. You can save a lot of money that way.

4- Invest the saved money in a laptop with atleast of 2GB GPU. You will see the speed, you have never seen.

Hope this helps.
