I recently bought the with the following specs:
- Core i7-8750H CPU 2.20GHz, 8th gen
- 32 GB RAM, DDR4
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max - Q design
- 500GB SSD
! If you need more info, let me know !
I thought it would be a good a good choice, however the combo of python 3, bitcoin data, neo4j desktop, Windows Linux Subsystem on windows 10 x64, led initially to speakers' issues followed by a blue screen.
By speakers' issues I mean a "transformers" sound - unfortunately, I don't know how else to describe better. I turned off the laptop and turned it back on after one day of not using it at all. The sound issues were gone, but after running the following query on the bitcoin graph database with 16.883.071 nodes and a bit more than 20 million relationships:
RETURN source, destination, r
The blue screen came up.
At the same time a python script was running which was downloading the rest of the bitcoin data from blockchain.info.
My question is, shouldn't a laptop with these specs handle the workload? If not, what would you suggest?
I need a powerful laptop that can run neo4j, graph algorithms and predictive modelling - machine learning scripts efficiently.
