I am thinking about replacing my old Samsung 700T (Intel Core i5 3317U 1700MHz / 4Gb RAM / 3G / touchscreen) laptop.
Is there something on the market which is close to it in terms of usability, just more modern or am I looking for a unicorn 🦄?
- Software development;
- Internet browsing.
I.e. File system, CPU, and memory intensive labor + usability in terms of text (code) visibility on the screen. WiFi network independence is a huge bonus.
- built-in 4G (LTE) adapter;
- 13" — 15" anti-glare display;
- 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor (or "better");
- 256+ Gb SSD (526 Gb is preferable);
- 8 Gb RAM with a possibility of upgrade (16 Gb is preferable);
- Great video card is NOT required;
- Touchscreen is NOT required;
- Budget is open-ended, but ideally below $1500/2000 USD.
Nice to have
- Back-lit keyboard;
- 4+ hours long living battery.
- Port-rich form factor.
- ASUS ZenBook UX430UA-DH74 — Misses LTE adapter.
- Dell XPS 13 (9370) -- Misses LTE adapter; mixed reviews.
Actually, this might be something I am looking for ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Gen
