I'm adding this here because the feature of a prospective laptop I will be purchasing in the future is directly related to android studio.

Please bare with me as I am new to android studio and android development in general.  When I initially installed studio on my original desktop (had an AMD processor).  Studio would not work the built in virtual machine(phone) that came with Studio, it suggested I download/purchase a third party.  As I am new to this aspect (a little better than new in Java and desktop application design).

From what I understand I need an Intel core i7 processor for the built in virtual machine to work correctly.  do you know of any other processors?

I asked the following question in the Java section but maybe I'll get different answers here.

I am looking to buy a new laptop for programming.  I would like to have a decent system but I have a few must haves that are making laptops harder to find.  My list is as follows in order of desire:
  • Processor MB to handle Studio built in phone virtualization.  Like the Intel i7 7th gen
  • 64 gig ram prefered, 32 accepted
  • 17" touch screen
  • back lit keyboard
  • 125 gig SSD primary drive for OS ext, 1T HDD for everything else
  • Built in bluetooth enabled would be great


  • You would think companies like HP would be able to assist but they usually don't offer everything. So far the only things I found close are Alien ware but others have suggested I can find what I am looking for in a normal (less then $4k laptop)

    I don't game but I do want high performance.

    If anyone has more experience buying laptops and know where and how this Stuborn and OCD man can find what I am looing for.  Please comment.  Some company needs to design laptop parts and build systems from scratch like we do with desktops.  If I could find a place that sold the components so you build your own laptop, that would be great!

    Again any suggestions would be appreciated!
