New Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, I need some advice on buying a new Laptop

 

I have sort of narrowed it down to two options and as I live in new Zealand they are about the same price. One is the xps15 with 256gb ssd 1080p screen and the razer stealth with 256gb ssd qhd screen. I am interested in having something that will have good battery life and also have the ability to add an external GPU via the thunderbolt connection that they both have.

The XPS would be a manufacturer refurbish and the razer would be new.

Which would you guys recommend? If there are any other options I'd be keen to know about them provided they have the option for an external GPU.

 

Thanks for your time.

Im pretty sure that its the bigger one considering that its the ssd model not the one with the hdd. So I'd assume it'd be the 84wh battery. How long would that last?
