So you don't want Intel iGPU?

 

Audio quality in most Ultrabooks / regular laptops is nothing special. Also, 10 hrs of battery life is a bit hard to be achieved TBH


Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!

 

My daily driver: Lenovo Legion Y530 [REVIEW]

the ethernet port makes it hard to find if u want to use a dongle then tell me so i will give u amazing options

keep coming back to the same solution that the ethernet is going to have to be a dock of some sort.

 

let me see what you have for options.

was hoping for at least MX150 onboard graphics or the new intel G class cpu with Vega onboard you know enough to get things done not looking for a "gaming" rig by any stretch of the imagination our boss uses a i9 MacBook to do alot of it and we all know how pathetic MacBook GPU choices are but it works no one else wants to spend that sort of money on a laptop and we want touch support and the ability to use a pen to modify drawings and layouts in real time to show people what's in our head. 

 

also looking for close to 10 hours doesn't have to be that exact amount of time its just a buffer so in 2 years when that battery isn't as good we can still get 3-4 hours walking time with it before it needs to be plugged in or if site doesn't have power yet I have to run off inverters and a truck if I need a charge.

I'll recommend the Yoga 730 15", or some of the other Lenovo Yogas. They don't have ethernet (you're not going to find much with recent specs, a touch screen and pen support with an ethernet port, if anything) but they're pretty well spec'd. They're around $1000 depending on the sale and if you're okay getting them used/eBay.

There aren't many 13/14 inch convertibles/tablet with a good dGPU (not Vega iGPU) at this price range. Fine with 15 inch?
