Need a work laptop suggestion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a suggestion for a laptop for work. I'm upgrading from my MacBook pro. I have a gaming computer at home but might do some light gaming while I'm traveling etc. I'd like to stay with something not super gamer looking and on the portable side preferably with a touch screen. I'm in the US and price range can be anywhere from 1,000 to 1800.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

XPS 15 might be a good option for your situation

XPS 15 2-in-1, it has a Vega M GL (essentially a 1050), a 4c8t, and a 2-in-1 touch screen. My primary recc would be XPS 15, but not sure if it has Touchscreen.

I'm not particularly picky on those aspects but preferably 8 hours with a light workload (I'm usually not far from an outlet at work so if I can't get that it's no big deal) weight wise I guess not much heavier than my MBP if possible so 4 ish lbs

Thanks actually been looking at the 2-in-1 looks like a nice machine

Anyone have any thoughts on this laptop? Asus Q536FD

 

Seems like a great laptop for the price. Just worried that GTX 1050 would be pretty lacking for a 4k display. 

Looks like notebookchecks example throttled down to 900mhz during mixed load.

Sorry for the late reply

 

Is touch screen a must? What games do you play (with the laptop)?
