New laptop

Hello Graeme,

Of course! Therefore my suggestion to spend the money on sensible periphery, like a 4k monitor, instead of investing into (mostly) superfluous calculational power. The Lenovo was just an example that I know by own usage. Any other with similar processing power may do as well.

Quote:I'm replacing an old machine (6 years or more) and as it will probably be the last one I buy before I die, I'm trying to cover all the angles.

To cover all angles:
  • Acquire reasonable periphery
  • Take care of good interconnectivity: USB-C, USB-3.x, different monitor options, existence of a dock, ...
  • Exchangeability of batteries, possibility to upgrade "internals" (RAM, SSD, ...)

At least this is what I consider as relevant for an all-purpose notebook. The newest notebook comps are frequently not so persuasive in these aspects ...   Wink

Cheers,
Petra
