    No.
    Yes.
    I've had trouble navigating HP German website, and it produced errors while configurating, so can't provide exact link - but I suggest you a configuration with Dreamcolor Display, i7-6820HQ or Xeon 1505M, Quadro K1000M, 90Wh battery - and as little memory as possible, and preferably only HDD, or cheapest-smallest SSD. Then, you could buy more RAM and some good SSD or two on Amazon or Ebay.

    These days, I believe Clevo is the only remaining option for upgradeable (non-BGA) CPU in laptops. As for the GPU, there are only a handful of manufacturers left incorporating MXM graphics cards.

    Upgrading RAM and storage is simple enough in most laptops that are not super thin ultrabooks.

    Which specific applications will you use that would benefit from workstation graphics (Quadro/FirePro)?

    the M1000M graphics card is not interesting to me at all.

    the main points why I want this notebook is the weight 2kg ONLY, the DREAMCOLOR display and the design.


    clevo is just bad built if you compare it to a business HP notebook and has NO dreamcolor quality displays..


    If I ever want to game I can just connect the notebook to a eGPU , external dockingstation that holds a gtx 980M , that would work correct ?

    Ah I see, in this case, if you won't likely use creative applications for your projects that benefit from dedicated graphics, maybe go with something like 940M, or even integrated GPU is probably sufficient. The Quadro cards and Xeon processor sound like a wasted expense for your usage scenario.

    It would help if you complete this form ( http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/what-should-i-buy-form-must-read-before-posting.29271/ ), as it seems we are all just throwing out random suggestions, but we have no idea what are the most demanding tasks you will actually need the laptop to handle.

    When you mentioned powerful CPU, development work, workstation graphics and requiring a lot of RAM, I thought you were talking about rendering video or 3D projects in creative applications that benefit from this type of hardware.
