This is a bit off-topic, but ...
After years of working with Windows, I want to get started with Linux, and want to do so with a laptop.
I see various offerings on the Internet, but before buying one, I'm hoping for a recommendation from someone with more experience than I have.
I do mainly database work, so favor disk capacity, memory, and IO throughput. Do expect to be working mainly with Python.
Don't want to spend more than $1000. Would consider used or refurbished.
Any suggestions will be appreciated,
