Need a new laptop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, i'm looking for a laptop, i mean the perfect laptop if is possible. I'm really picky about all my laptop so lets start.

I currently have an HP EliteBook 8440p, with an i5 520m,8GB DDR3 1333, 64gb ssd and intel video.


Not this is the part where i'm picky. I almost alway buy busness class laptop, EliteBook, Thinkpad. So i want as much as possible to have one.

Other thing, i like small laptop 14 inch maybe 15 if its really a plus.

I absolutely need esata and FireWire, Would also apreciate a last gen i5 or even i7, and usb3.

Would also like keep it under 14 inch and if by miracle its possible 2hdd, don't really need the dvd rom.

Would really like an nvidia video card, even if its not too powerfull just for driver reason, and high resolution screen (curently 720p)

i dont know if its possible but 4 slot of ddr3 would be nice but that just a dream

And all that at a resonable price and avaible in canada

thansk everyone for ur help

I always swear by Dell Latitudes when it comes to business notebooks. I've used, owned and supported them over the past 5 years.

Very solid and awesome warranties.

I would suggest the Dell Latitude E6420 which comes with the new i5/i7 Sandy Bridge CPUs (2.3Ghz to 2.7Ghz)

Look really nice but i'm getting 1899.99+ for the smallest quadcore i7 a crappy nvidia video card, 2gb of ram, 250gb hdd,

but i get the second tray for the hdd, high def screen, last gen i7.


i was hopping getting a new laptop will be cheaper then upgrading mine....


i can get i7 740QM for about 180 on ebay, and the high def screen for about the same, HP sell the second tray for the second hdd but for a small fortune btu still cheaper to buy all that then changing....

A thinkpad t420 is a good laptop but it won't have everything you want. It would have a dual core sandy bridge processor, 4GB of RAM and a 1600x900 screen but integrated graphics. Its only $650 so its something to consider.
