WTD: High Spec (Non-Gaming) Laptop/Desktop

4
Edited by:"RudeYute"Found 29th Oct 2017
Hey guys,

I am looking for a high spec laptop to run Virtual Machines (usually around 2 Windows and 3 Linux at a time) and do some intensive processing with. I will not be using it for gaming, so an integrated graphics card is plenty, though if I can use it for video editing, that would be a bonus.

  • Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor with HyperThreading, or better
  • 32 GB (DDR3 preferably) RAM (64 GB would be a bonus)
  • Ideally two hard drives - 1 SSD and 1 spinning so I can store up to 1 TB of data
  • At least 2 USB3 ports (shouldn't be difficult)

Anything above and beyond that is a bonus. I was hoping to find something in £1500, but maybe I am being optimistic. I know I can find it in £2,000, but hoping not to spend that much.

Anyone got any recommendations at a reasonable price?

Thanks

PS - Will consider a desktop if it is significantly cheaper.

Thanks, that is already one of my options, but not sure about the quality of their laptops. Anyone have any first hand feedback?

Clevo's high end chassis are pretty good for build quality, Assuming it's a P751DM2 or similar then notebookcheck found it satisfactory:

I have 17 inch model. These are based on Clevo barebones . Very solid build quality & you can pretty much change anything. Check notebookcheck for reviews or notebook review forum Clevo section for user feedback.,

You can buy same model from Scan 3xs / Mysn / PC Specialists
