I am a System Admin at an IT Support Services company that supports small and medium sized businesses in the DC metro area. My boss is getting ready to purchase me a laptop for work. Not having a laptop with me all day is limiting my efficiency in handling calls I get while on-site with a client; with a laptop I can provide remote support or answers for certain tasks instead of waiting until I get back to my computer at the office.
- Size: 15.6 or smaller with 1920x1080 resolution or better
- CPU: Quad Core Intel i5 or i7
- Memory: DDR4 8gb or more expandable (would be open to non-expandable ram depending on what other laptop suggestions)
- Keyboard: As close to full sized as possible; keys cannot be too shallow and/or too small. Number pad would be nice but is not required.
- WiFi: Dual Band AC
I would like the laptop to have both a HDD for storage and a PCIe NVME SSD for Windows and apps. Not getting the NVME SSD is not a deal breaker by any means just something that would be useful to me. I would use the SSD for my boot/app drive and the a HDD SATA drive for storage.
