Dear all,
Now that my old HP HDX16 is dead, I want to buy within the next 2/3 weeks a new laptop. 
I would like from the laptop to answer the following criteria:
  • Windows 10 ready
  • Intel’s 14nm Broadwell processor (or Core M, even if I've read that the latter tends to make some laptops overheat)
  • Regarding my use, I do mainly office work (so having several instances of Outlook, Word, Powerpoint and Chrome open at the same time) and I watch videos (streaming, series, movies... in HD)
  • A good battery and the ability to carry it with me (it does not need to be 3mm thick however)
I already took a look at some laptops like the Dell XPS 13, Lenovo Lavie Z or Z51, or Asus' Zenbooks, but it is hard to know which to pick. 
I also hesitate to borrow a laptop for some months and wait end of summer/September to buy a new one, as Windows 10 will be released, but I do not know if it is worth the pain.
Any opinion and advise would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks,

According to notebookcheck.net the Lenovo Thinkpad T450 with the Nvidia 940M (for Windows 10 -DX12 support) is the best business oriented laptop available.

Thanks for your answer YeahBleeping!


The Lenovo seems to be a pretty good choice. I've also heard of the Asus Zenbook series, with IPS matte screen. What do you think of this series and technology? 

Also what is your opinion on screen definitions Full HD and higher? For these sizes of laptops do you really see the difference between a 1080p and let's say a 3200*1800?


Many thanks!
