    Hi there,

    I’d like to get myself a laptop 100% dedicated to hacking and running Kali Linux.
    So no games, no Windows, no photoshop editing… just networking/hacking/coding stuff.

    What are you using ? What would you recommend ?



    if you can utilize GPU on a laptop then anything with dedicated GPU



    Most off the shelf laptops with 32 GB+ RAM or an i5 processor or better should be fine. Nvidia GPUs with CUDA cores can be useful if you use the GPU for computationally intensive work such as creating hashes. GPU’s are coming down in price and Desktop GPU’s are significantly better than ones on any laptop.



    Thanks for your replies !

    In fact I’m looking at a small/medium laptop (15″ max) so I can move it around easily.
    But I’ll keep in mind your advice about RAM & GPU.

    I was wondering about the wifi reception too: is it about the same in all modern laptops or do some have better reception/antenna ?


    ral peters

    all i need is a portable laptop with a very large ram size


    Asus ROG. The Best.



    I can say in WiFi issue; if you want to work with long distances, you can use a USB WiFi dongle for this job. It is very cheap and good solution. So you don’t need to choose your computer for WiFi reception.



    i still have faith on core i 3. but if i have to make changes soon i’ll go for Hp envy 10gb RAM and 1 terabite HDD
