Hi guys, I've been lurking for a long time, waiting for a truly lightweight laptop that can use the Razer Core (or something similair), to get my dream combination of portability for work, whilst being able to plug in powerful graphics to game at home. I don't want a seperate tower pc due to space considerations. Ideally I'd like something like an ultrabook to carry around all day, but I don't want to compromise with a U series core processor. Are there any ultrabooks with a full core cpu? Ideally with a seperate GPU for some light gaming on the go, but I can forgo that if necessary. It must have thunderbolt 3 support though, to connect the external graphics card. General Questions 1) What is your budget? up to £1500 2) What size notebook would you prefer? b. Ultraportable; 11" - 12" screen this would be ok c. Thin and Light; 13" - 14" screen this would be perfect d. Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen maybe, if it's light enough 3) Where will you buying this notebook? You can select the flag of your country as an indicator. UK 4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like? a. Like: b. Dislike: 5) Would you consider laptops that are refurbished/redistributed? maybe, if warranty is good 6) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook? remote desktop, some VM, light gaming on the go, heavier gaming at home with external GFX 7) Will you be taking the notebook with you to different places, leaving it on your desk or both? both 8) Will you be playing games on your notebook? If so, please state which games or types of games? a variety, witcher3, diablo3, elite frontier 9) How many hours of battery life do you need? not too fussed, more interested in a light power adapter, than a big heavy battery. 10) Would you prefer to see the notebooks you're considering before purchasing it or buying a notebook on-line without seeing it is OK? yes, but I don't think this is really possible. 11) What OS do you prefer? Windows (Windows 7 / 8), Mac OS, Linux, etc. Windows Screen Specifics 12) From the choices below, what screen resolution(s) would you prefer? Keep in mind screen size in conjunction with resolution will play a large role in overall viewing comfort level. Everyone is different.

Full HD, maybe UHD 13) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen? (Scroll down to see explanations.) not too fussed Build Quality and Design 14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you? not as much as specifications, I will take it to work though, so prefer no giant flashing logos 15) When are you buying this laptop? UK 16) How long do you want this laptop to last? 3-4 years Notebook Components 17) How much hard drive space do you need? Do you want a SSD drive? definitely SSD, minimum 256gb, preferably more, but I can use an external usb3 hdd 18) Do you need an optical drive?
