Laptop for Coding.
I am in the market for a new laptop for web development.
I have heard great things about all of the choices available (Linux, Mac, Windows, and Chrome).
I am just in need of some guidance. And something that won't break the bank.
Hopefully nobody will tell you 'Get laptop X made by company Y' as it is all a matter of personal preference.

Since you are talking about Web Development, you have a much greater range of choices (which can be daunting) but you don't need too much power to get anything done. You should probably think about what type of applications you will run, what language(s) you will work in, size of screen you are comfortable with and use those as deciding factors.
Really though, its all preference since you don't need a powerhouse machine and web development can happen on any OS. So which OS are you most familiar and comfortable with? That should start narrowing down your options.
