I just got a job at Google and they gave me a new laptop for work.

I just got a job at Google and they gave me a new laptop for work. It's a Chromebook with an Intel Celeron, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. My manager said this is the standard dev machine and is more than enough for coding. Is this really all I need? Seems kind of underpowered to me. Should I ask for a MacBook Pro instead? I want to make a good impression in my first week.

    they are testing you.
    if you can code on that piece of shit you can code on anything, begging for a $2000 mac on your first week is a massive no no

      You are probably right. I'll code on the shitbox Chromebook to prove myself like a good wage cuckie.

    you're LARPing. I'd gotten a better laptop (and a Thinkpad model too) from a no name startup when I had my first internship in 2013.

    From my vague knowledge of the goog, most of the builds are done distributed and a lot of them use in-browser vs code or some shit. Just install vim or eMacs (or use a pre-setup one with auto completion shit pre-configured) and be on your way.

    In my job all the development is remote over ssh so I could probably get away with that. Except it will be fricking slow just to load the multitude of dumb web apps required for work.

            It's a new state of the art model they've been rolling out in my discord. Neat tech, isn't it? I don't have permission to share it here though.

      It's should be fine, if you can handle slowest python shit, that lags even on modern PC on a fricking 4gb ram calculator

    Do you get to ssh into an actual computer? If not, I don't see the problem.

    Did you
    - declare your pronouns
    - make sure everybody is aware of your dietary restrictions
    - make SURE the coffee is free trade, humanely sourced
    - stage a sit-in for $cause
    That seems like par for the course for first week at GOOG

    if only every developer on the planet was forced to use a machine like that for software development. then we might actually have decent software that uses resources reponsibly instead of the shit we suffer now.

    Because you SHOULD NOT BE DOING PRODUCTION WORK OR YOUR JOB ON A LAPTOP THAT CAN BREAK.

    celeron+4GB+32Gb is more than enough for you to open RDP/Terminal sessions/Citrix VDI and App's, all things that are hosted security in their datacenter. Why would they want you to work on a laptop locally when they have an ultra powerful, secure, and backed up environment you should store your work in.

    If you can't do your work via a terminal like this, you are really shitty.
