Portable, high-end laptop required

Posted 28th Dec 2019
Hi all, I’m looking for a high-end, portable laptop that can cope with fairly heavy data-processing.

I’ve been looking at:

HP Envy 13
Huawei Matebook X Pro
Dell XPS 13

Any favourable comments about either of these models? I used to have the Dell so am steering towards either of the top two but am unsure as to which one to go for - or indeed if there’s another laptop I’ve not yet considered.

Many thanks in advance!

Just purchased the Dell XPS 13 with i7, 512GB SSD, 16GB ram and 4k screen for £1250. Impressed especially coming from Apple MacBook Pro 13".
Windows 10 has come a long way from XP/Vista, and MacOS Catalina has been a huge disappointment.
If you're going to get an xps please buy the latest model, at work we have some of the last gen early 2019 xps with a fanless "cooler" and we have throttling issues all of the time.

The new xps is a great little machine, only annoying thing is the 4k screen does take a fair bit of battery but is a cracking screen to look at. Defo go for the 16gb ram varient!

One minor poke is the webcam quality is poor and doesnt support windows hello!

I’m looking sub-£1k so maybe the XPS is too expensive for me anyway. The other two seemed to be within that price bracket with decent specs

Thanks for this, very much appreciated!
Liked the look of the HP Envy x360 that I saw today as well - reduced to £699 in Curry’s I think (from £849). Also quite liked the look of the HP Spectre but that was quite a bit more expensive.

Still can’t find the Huawei in stock anywhere to have a good look at it!
