no gaming

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
nothing fancy, basic programing, watching streams etc.

13. What country do you live in?

It depends on how much virtualization there will be, if there will be a lot, 16gb of ram will be needed, so something like this. If not much, you can drop to 8gb ram like this.

In the end, since it's just basic tasks and programming, you will want to look for lot's of ram, 16gb is ideal, and a cpu with 4+ cores/8+ threads.
