I'd like to have a Laptop that can do some QC calculations which is able to even do a little heavier stuff.
Such calculations need a fast CPU, don't use hyperthreading, have either a high memory demand or a high hard drive I/O.
So for the last point, SSDs are not the way to go, right? Probably some mixed system with SSD for system and HDD for the writing stuff.
Let's ignore the price - are there laptops that can deal with such specifications?
