Since you mentioned music recording, I think a stronger processor would be a better option for the long term. So, I recommend the more recent model of the Inspiron 15, the **Dell G5**. It has a more recent processor, the i7-8750H processor. It is a 6-core processor vs the 4-core processor in the Inspiron 15. If you’re mainly using the processor, the laptop will not have any problems cooling itself.
The laptop has 8 GB RAM, you can upgrade it in the future if you’d like, may be useful for development and music recording. You can run games as well if you’d like since you have a dedicated graphics card. I personally think a Windows laptop would be a good option, since they have the strongest specifications for the price.
Let me know if you have any questions.
