My Boss wants me to work from home as well, so what we need to do is to buy good Quality Laptop.
What is the best option?
what kind of Laptop do i need to work on SQL, loots of data!!!!!
In general, working from home means connecting to the servers from home - if this is the case you only need the client and you should not be concerned about the database having a "lot of data".
If, as suggested, the plan is to have a copy of the database in your laptop that usually is a very bad idea.
Answering your question, most WinTel based laptops come today with four cores and four gigs of memory - more than enough for a client, more than enough to house a small development database if that was the case.
