Laptop Brand: 5 laptops - $1k each
I have to buy 5 laptops for coding, php development, budget $1000 each. What is the best laptop brand? what brand i should buy?
PHP programming is not a very resource-intensive task, particularly because there isn't a CPU intensive compilation step when you make changes as there would be with a compiled language. Therefore, I would focus more on features than raw performance.
I would take $200-$300 of that budget and invest it in a second monitor for the programmer - that will be more useful to them than additional horsepower.
As far as brands go, at the $1k price point I don't believe there is really a major difference between them. $1k is enough to get a good machine, but it's not high-end, so the machines you will find there are going to be commodity type products.
WOW "a second monitor" is a great advice Thank you

I had allways good Luck with Lenovo Laptops.
I recently bought a lenovo u510. It's an alright laptop for the price($600). One thing you should keep in mind is UEFI. All windows 8 computers come with it and can make dual booting/changing the os slightly difficult with the secure boot feature. It's set up differently with every manufacturer though. For What E-oreo said about buying a second monitor, It is a great idea but I wouldn't spend 200-300 per monitor if that's whats he meant. I just bought an alright 21.5 in monitor for $110 that works just fine.
