  • you can run VM's fairly easy, but you would be limited to ram the most i think ive seen ram wise is 12 GB and single HDD/SSD my ASUS has 32GB 1600 MHz 2 GB DDR5 VRam and 2 SSD Samsung 850 evos running in raid 0 I compile code in fractions of a seconds, running on a Haswell I7 for half the price. now I will say if your running Ubuntu, then you can run a lot of VM's due to the low amounts of ram they require, but depends on the IT field you are going in to and what you are developing for.
