I checked the archives before posting and couldn't find anything related.
I want to know what are the best specifications for a laptop in order to run Stata with a big dataset, that keeps growing.  I am not doing a lot of statistical simualtions, but from time to time need to run some marginal effects for logits/ probits and when I RESHAPE some of the databases, it takes over 20 minutes in my current laptop (over 3 years old).
One of the main issues i am facing in my current laptop, is that if keeping other applications running (excel, or outlook) makes stata to fail to save files back in my hardisk
Laptop is important because I telecomute and mobility is a plus.  I guess the question can be framed as what is more important RAM versus proccessor speed?  Or AMD versus Intel processors?  Speed of hard disk?
is there any other configuration specification that I am overlooking?
I you have bought a new laptop recently to run stata, i appreciate if you can let me know the particular specs and budget
