    Looking for recommendation to replace an aging HP Elitebook 8510p.
    Uses: Microsoft Office (needed for wife's work), Chromecasting movies from local NAS and youtube and GoNoodle (for kids), general web browsing. Very light gaming (kids games) and development (learning to code Python & Java).
    Wants: 13" or 14" touchscreen, 256GB SSD or NVME drive, 8GB or larger memory, lightweight, dock to connect: wired Ethernet, home NAS, keyboard, mouse, 22" or larger touchscreen monitor (also any recommendations for this?).
    Price range: $800 - $1200

    Docking solutions these days are predominantly going to Thunderbolt 3. You can find those ports on mid- to high-end notebooks right around your price range. If you want snap-in docking solutions, Dell Latitude/Lenovo ThinkPad still offer them on some models. The ThinkPad T470 is one example.

    The Dell Latitude 5480 is one notebook to look at if you want a 14" touch screen and dedicated docking capabilities.

    You'll get better bang for your buck at a manufacturer outlet. HP, Lenovo, Dell all have them. Most are returns sold at a nice discount. They look new and you'll get at least a year of warranty.
