Hy

 

Before everyone starts writing: "There is alredy a topic discussing this".

Yes i saw it. But still i dont know more.

 

I need help from you guys.

 

In the moment i have a surface book (the original one) with on i5, 8GB of ram and a 256GB SSD.

It worked fine for word and for Youtube, but now ive started to work part time and use mostly Altium.

 

But while designin ive started to encounter some stutter.

 

After these year of working with this laptop, ive need to buy a new one.

 

If you have read until now here are my need to haves:

- Min 16GB of ram

- Min 500gb of storage

- USB-C !!! (if its a surface product it doesnt need to have it)

- Very good keyboard (nearly surface level)

- touch screen (if possible with 4k)

- maybe an embedded grafics card for some games.

- 15 inch screen.

 

Thank you for helping.

 

If  you have a question i will try to reply as fast as possible.

 

Greetings

Welcome to the forums!

 

Where are you from? Budget? Usage? Any preference on weight and battery life?

1. Are USB C and touch screen a must?

2. Keyboard feel depends on personal preference, suggest you to try out in stores

Hey

 

Thank you for your questions. :)

 

Im from Switzerland.

 

The budget is open, so no limitations.

 

Usage is day to day for school work and nearly every day for my "real" work.

 

Near all day battery life would be nice if possible.

 

Weight should be something light, but doesnt need to be as light as an lg gram but it also doesnt need to be like a Asus Mothership (or however this beast is called). Something which is portable but powerfull to is nice.

 

Like i said USB-C is a must if its no a surface product. I have a surface dock at home so i can connect everything there.

 

Touch screen is a must. I just cant think it away after using it with the surface book.

 

One thing i forgot is that i should have min. 4 Cores if not 6 or 8.

 

Last but not least, thx for that info about the keyboard i will go try that out when i have some recommendations.

 

Thanks to all helping me!!

Do you need pen / stylus support for the touchscreen?

 

Also, open to performance / gaming laptops? (some of them have good battery life)

Self explanatory. FHD non touch model has longer battery life

Should be able to last at least 6 hrs for P52 UHD and around 6 hrs for P1 UHD / X1 Extreme UHD
