Laptop with good tilt (display max angle)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am searching for a new laptop for about 1500$ and my conditions are:

  • Good display tilt (I have ThinkPad T430 for very long time so I used to it). There is no need for full 180 but I need at least some space and no body lift!
  • Second most important is at least GTX 1050 performance (Because that I don't even considering new ThinkPads)
  • Third most important is to have rigid body (not plastic)
  • Last but not that important is small bezels and lightweight/thin (but everything is better than T430 so...)

What I found:

I can buy it on Amazon so I am not limited to my local shops, but I need help with searching for best laptop.

 

Thanks

XPS 15 might suit you. Awesome build quality and tiny bezels.

I can't find some video or information about tilt angle

Just grabbed my XPS and a protractor, no body lift, opens just about 135 degrees, or about 45 degrees from flat.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And you have 9560 or 9670? I don't like the camera on bottom side -_- Also I must find out if there is any IO difference. Amazon still have 9560

9560, camera on the bottom bezel sucks, but I have never needed the webcam anyway. I believe the only IO differences between the 9560 and 9570 are, HDMI 2.0 on the 9570, and on the 9570 the thunderbolt port has 4 PCIe lanes and on the 9560 it has 2.

Don't need 180+, but more close to 180 more I happy :D

Battery life is not that important and weight as I said I prefer mainly thin and metal so some ultrabook? 2kg maybe? I think more important is metal body and GPU than final weight and battery life.

 

How I said I can buy it from Amazon but our local shops are: alza cz, czc.cz, mall.cz

Good display tilt

Unless that T460 can tilt 180 degrees, I think all of the laptops suggested here would at least match that tilt. Why are you set on it? My XPS 13 9360 can tilt much further than I ever use.

Because what you're asking for isn't cheap :) good build quality + decent to high performance + thin formfactor = expensive.

What about Lenovo IdeaPad 720s-15IKB or new Thinkpad E490? As I know build wuality of Edge models is not very nice so idk if E490 is good choice... (550X is "good enough" i think)

Can't speak personally for either of them, but the IdeaPad 720s is on @GeneXiS_X's list who (I think) knows what they're talking about when it comes to laptops. I think Lenovo's a good brand though, and from experience from colleagues I've heard good things about their support as well.

At then end of the day you'll have to compromise on something. You can find flaws with every laptop that you'll get recommended; been there, done that. Ports are something that are dissappearing slowly, but can usually be fixed with dongles (at the cost of carrying more adapters with you) so are lower priority for me, for example

I have good experience with my Dell, but if you go that route I would highly recommend getting extra warranty, as their quality control has issues, with problems being a common occurence in the XPS lineup. Their support within warranty was excellent in my experience though, but outside was pretty much none.

I want at least numeric keyboard, metal chassis, not silver color, at least GTX 1050 GPU and not be frickin huge fat monster :D Even this is too much atm :D I will just pray for this year.
