Hi there...

 

In order to learn OpenCL programming, I'm thinking about a very cheap notebook. What I've found, surfin' the Web all around, is this: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14.

 

Please find here some specs.

 

CPU: AMD E1-2100 dual core @ 1 GHz

 

RAM: 4GB DDR3 @ 1600 MHz

 

The graphic card is the AMD Radeon HD 8210 that should works for OpenCL.

 

The point is: my budget is very, very low and what I really need is a platform to learn programming OpenCL. I'm also planning to install GNU/Linux with no Windows: no need to play videogames, no need to play HD videos, no need to waste my time on Facebook or similars. Just gcc, gvim and so on !

 

If that graphic card is good for a beginner as me, I think that such notebook is a good choice.

 

Any suggestions ?

 

Kind regards.

 

Marco.
