After more than 10 years, my laptop is finally broken. Actually, it's been announced for about 2 years now, but all new laptops seem to have serious defects for me personally. There is no DVD drive and you can't simply remove the battery. I'm looking for a new laptop that doesn't have these two defects. The laptop should have an Intel processor.
I don't pay any attention to weight or any design things at all, and I'm especially not a fan of Apple products. The laptop should have as large a hard drive as possible, but the access speed on it isn't that important, so I don't necessarily need an SSD. In addition, a proper graphics card wouldn't be bad, but it's not a must.
To perhaps make it clearer why I need a DVD drive, I would like to install the operating system myself and then I would also be able to use the laptop as a portable DVD player.
