A cheaper version of the razor blade?

Hello,

It's laptop replacement time once again as my current travel companion is literally falling apart. 

Requirements:
Professional look, no ROG unicorn barf. 
Metal exterior- Can withstand united airlines. 
95 w/h battery. 
i5 or similar
16+GB or up-gradable ram slots. 
Gtx1050 or similar for some lite gaming. 
NVME SSD.
Must have: HDMI, **Sturdy** cat6 port, 2x usb3 standard ports for the work equipment it plugs into.

 

Size and weight isnt too much of an issue, but i would prefer smaller and lighter. 15 inches, a few pounds. 
Performance isnt as important as future-proofing. 
Ideally a razor blade, (15 inches with oodles of ports), but not 3 grand. $1000-1500 would be ideal. 

Ideas?

If you can forego the RJ45 port, sounds like you'd be very happy with an XPS 15.

XPS is your best bet here. Use a USB>ethernet

ports are required for the work equipment. non-negotiable must haves.

6 hours running full screen & IO during missions in a turbulent plane with intermittent power input, metal = scratch & impact resistant (plastic gear gets obliterated if we get neg-G turbulence, also less RF shielding). weight depends on component balance, no specific number but I have to haul ass with it so lighter is better- under 10lbs full package. Canada.

Can't use dongles, custom software does not allow.
