Recommendations on 1440p+ Laptops for Business

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Good morning OCN (Or afternoon, or night)

Currently looking to get some proposals together for works, We are currently looking for 2 Laptops to be used for medical imaging and such. Budget is somewhat nonexistant but would prefer it to be ~2k or so (per). I am not to familiar with laptops so wanted to try here first as I look around the internet and see what I can find on my own and match findings.

Biggest NEEDS for these is that the screens need to be 1440p or higher (nothing 1080p), with a decent amount of space. Preferably a 500GB+ SSD. Or something with an smaller SSD + bigger HD option.

Assuming something like this would either come with an i5 or i7, which is fine, atleast 8GB RAM, and nothing incredibly flimsy or weak build wise.

No worries on the OS/Software as we would be installing our own image and software, mainly just need these hardware specs.

Looks either sold-out or no longer available, but they have some good options that may work. Im finding it hard to find a decently sized laptop with a screen better than 1080p

The Razer Blade laptop has a 3200 x 1800 screen and can come with a 512gb ssd for $2.2k. The term for these screens is "QHD", and a bunch of other vendors have similar machines.

Nope. Nope nope nope nope.

None of these are good options.

If this is for medical imaging, you need a machine that you can not only depend on, but a machine that has good hardware support/coverage.

That way if your laptop goes kaput for what ever reason, you can get a replacement asap.

I would call dell and HP and see if either of them would give you a business account.

Normally you would have to buy dell or HP computers in bulk, but since you work in the medical field (I assume), they might be willing to cut you a deal.

If not, a macbook pro 15 inch is going to be your best bet for turn around time when it comes to hardware support.

Eurocom P5 Pro SE
weighs less
comes in 1920x1080 or 3840x2160

Workstation/Mobile server laptop

You can get it with a xeon or a regular haswell lga1150

Quadro K1100M/K3100M/K5100M options

The thinkpad only has those MQ processors that aren't widely available if you need to replace it for some reason.

Nearly all the components can be removed/replaced

We currently have a Dell business account but from what I was seeing on their website, they dont have anything. I may have to call.

I see on the dell business site that they would sell you the xps 15, but with weird specs.

You might wanna call them up and see what they can do.

The dell xps 15 can be equipped with a 4K igzo screen.

Dell can spec the machine up to and i7 6700hq, 16GB of ram, 512GB pcie ssd, a gtx 960m, and a 6 cell battery.

But for what ever reason, the business laptops all have 256GB ssds and 8GB of ram?

So call them up and see if they wont spec it out for you guys.

thats the plan right now. 256 SSD would be fine as most of the storage will just be on shared network harddrives and 8GB RAM will be enough.
