What are you looking for in a computer? Gaming? Programming? Professional or casual?

Laptop? Desktop? Is coding your job? Your Hobby? It's necessary to know what power is needed

Really as you are just beginning basically any computer will work fine. Programming at the beginner level really doesn't exhaust a lot of resources. I have the bad habit of thinking to much about hardware when what is really needed is seat time. I got a Macbook Pro basically just because I like the Unix Kernel and the PCI Express SSD. The major bottleneck on most modern computers by far is the hard drive. I can run an entire virtual lab with several different virtual servers and a couple hosts without any problems. That kind of gets away from programming and into the IT side of things. I would recommend just getting something with at least 4GB of RAM and a decent HDD or preferably a SSD. All of which you can get for around $700 or less.

Don't get Sony. 

That being said, I would recommend Lenovo if your focus is more on performance than battery life. If you insist on not using a MAC, at least Lenovo actually works. 

For programming, try for at least 4GB RAM and I3 processor with at least Intel3000 Graphics. I would also recommend having at least 256 GB to keep local applications and projects.
