I’m also looking for a beginning coding partner if anyone is interested. My goal is to learn to build my own apps
I use a Chromebook and dual boot Xubuntu :}
Super cheap (unless you get the more expensive models) and really fun!
I’ve been using ThinkPads running ubuntu (or some other linux distro) for the last few years. They’re really inexpensive and are easily fixable if something were to break. And the keyboards are unmatched.
