c, c++, java predominantly. Eclipse, netbeans, Visual Studio among IDEs. I may use it for android development in future.


I don't think Visual Studio is available for Mac OS. Also, it would be better if the laptop has minimum of 8 GB ram at its disposal. Eclipse is a ram hog.

Better to go with Windows based laptops with atleast a hyperthreaded (if dual core) i5 and 2 ram slots.
