    MacBook Pro, thinkpad, or chrome book. Some teams force you to use chrome book without choice

      You can choose either, specs are standard.

    Don't have high hopes. You will get an option of MacBook (with shitty keyboard), Chromebook (with shitty os) and Unix one (with shitty build quality).
