Pro laptops such as Thinkpad, Hp studio book have them. They are kinda rare, due to the requirement of good cooling, thiccness and high price tag.

I do love the cringing at the pricetag to put things in perspective.  3000 gets you a Xeon, a quadro RTX 5000, some truly beast level hardware.  Or the 16 inch macbook pro with a throttled i9, 16 gb 2666mHz RAM, and an rx 580.  Im torn on that choice for sure.   


Main PC:  i9-9900k, Noctua D15 (+chromax!), z390 Gigabyte Aorus Master, 32 gb corsair LPX 3000 mHz, Strix RTX 2080 ti, Samsung 970 evo 500GB, 970 evo+ 1Tb, Seagate 3 Tb HDD, Fractal Define R6, EVGA 850w PSU.  Sennheiser HD 6XX headphones (w/ soundblaster G6 DAC/amp), yeti mic, Bose desk speakers.  Ducky One-2 mini + logitech G403 Hero

 

Work PC: Ryzen 2700x, wraith prism cooler, ASrock B450 mini-itx, 32 gb corsair LPX 3000 mHz, F.E. RTX 2070, Samsung QVO 1Tb, WD blue 1Tb, InWin A1 plus black case, 650w gold PSU (included w/ case).  Sennheiser PC37x.  Ducky One-2 mini + logitech G403 Hero

 

esports LAN on the cheap: Ryzen 2200g, ASrock B450 mini-itx, 16 gb corsair LPX 2400 mHz, EVGA GTX 760, WD blue 1Tb m.2, Silverstone ML08, Corsair SF450w.  Steelseries arctis headphones.  Any mouse and keyboard someone has sitting around.

Acer has created a laptop with the kinds of features real professionals need in the ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro.

 

 

 

That laptop is horrible.

Im a lawyer and a businessman so, a professional. Unless you were only referring to graph designers and publicists, as long the laptop works fine, reads well, and stays cool temp wise, it will do well on a pro level. And no rgb or those nonesense

I was thinking of professionals like engineers, architects, or 3D modelers.  For a lawyer I'd suggest just getting an XPS 13.

You are technically correct, the best kind of correct.

 

Though in the context of a computer nerd site its certainly geared toward professionals utilizing compute heavy tasks/programs rather than professionals at large. 

 

Most professionals (professional lawyers, doctors, businesses, racecar drivers, wrestlers etc) can get by with a chromebook on the lower end or a lower spec'd lappy with excel and internet access on the higher end.  Or an apple product, being that they tend to have comparable hardware to the aforementioned (boom, roasted)

Personally, i dislike chromebooks, at least the ones i've seen in stores are too plastic like.

What i do have laptopwise, is a macbook pro, and a x1 carbon. The macbook tends to get warm but goes well with my ecosystem. The x1 for meetings court etc, and goes well along my pc.

And no, i use far more than msof, there's some software for managing cases files and others for accessing casuistics wich oddly are heavy use.

racecar drivers

Well, if they're tuning their cars they'll need Windows. Not the best spec'd machine, but a decent one still. The one in the video is way overkill for this.
