What Laptop To Use in BoostC and Chameleon compilers programming Posted April 5, 2015 · Report reply I use a Lenovo B575 which cost a magnificent $300 in 2011, but last year I spent $200 to replace the motherboard (dubious economy there, but I didn't want the hassle of shifting everything over to a new machine--the hard drive was OK, so no issues concerning lost data). Boostc runs way slower than other compilers, and I'm just used to it being the way it is. Most of my programs are pretty small, anyway. By comparison, MikroC is almost instantaneous. I don't think it has much to do with the machine you run it on.
