As far as I'm aware only the XPS 15 and XPS 13 come close to ticking all these boxes, but someone correct me if i'm wrong.. I need TWO machines. One, more equipped as a desktop replacement 15 inch plus UHD screen, fast, big ram, 1tb SSD minimum, dedicated graphics (no gaming - just adobe) - should still be a light machine however. the other, small, but still high spec. in an ideal world both with use the same charger etc to make the whole bag an acceptable weight. Both machines will travel with me everywhere on long trips away... the idea is the 15 stays in the hotel room as the work horse, the 13 becomes the "go everywhere" machine. Right, specs 1) What is your budget? be great if i could get both under £3000 2) What size notebook would you prefer? 15 + and 13-14 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? Don't mind 5) Would you consider laptops that are refurbished/redistributed? Yes 6) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook? Everything except gaming. Sound and Video editing. Should be a very high spec machine with decent dedicated video for Adobe Suite. If I'm not mistaken Adobe loves cores, and I hear the 8th gen U processors are very impressive in this area and could make use of the cida cores of a 1050 or above. 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? NO 9) How many hours of battery life do you need? More the merrier - bad battery life will rule the machine out. happy to tolerate a battery slice 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? Don't mind 11) What OS do you prefer? Windows (Windows 7 / 8), Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, etc. Win 10 Screen Specifics 12) I LOVE big resolution but wont tolerate a glossy screen. so if it's glossy i prefer to go down to a 1080 and get a non-reflective. Bigger machine would need to be a UHD, smaller, could tolerate FHD Build Quality and Design 14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you? Yes 15) When are you buying this laptop? Now 16) How long do you want this laptop to last? 2-3 years minimum Notebook Components 17) How much hard drive space do you need? Do you want a SSD drive? I need a big SSD but am happy to install my own. 18) Do you need an optical drive? If yes, a DVD Burner, Blu-ray Reader or Blu-Ray Burner? No MUST HAVES - Backlit keys (both) WOULD LIKE TO HAVES (but not deak breakers) - Be nice to have at least one traditional / old USB 3 (both machines) - in an ideal world this laptop will have DEDICATED pg up and down keys (no pressing ctrl / shift) (SMALL machine) - excellent scroll pad / gestures - Up-gradable SSD / RAM would be lovely but not a must, if the machine is of high enough spec. (1TB SSD bare minimum if the machine is not upgrade-able (512GB in the small machine an absolute minimum) I think that's it. Any help, as ever, greatly appreciated.
