    Hi,

    I need a new laptop. Its for work and I have some specific requirements to be met.

    Part of my job involves me demonstrating software via a VM or two on customer sites. So I have some meaty RAM requirements.
    I've used a 2014 MBP till now, but its getting old and MacOS is slowly getting worse.

    Can anyone advise on possible candidates?

    Must have:

    • 13 or 14 inch screen, or at any rate smaller/lighter than my old 2014 Macbook Pro
    • Windows 10
    • 512Gb SSD or better
    • 8th Gen i5 or i7 (not 7th)
    • Must have MORE than 16GB RAM
    • Projector connectivity


    So far I'm limited to two - Thinkpad T480s (offers 24GB RAM) or Dell XPS 15 (32GB RAM option).

    I'm leaning toward the T480s for the better reputation on build quality.

    Are there any others I may have missed?

    Thanks for any thoughts/tips!

    PS - Budget is not a constraint

    I couldn't find the XPS 15 in an 8th gen CPU. All I could see was a 7th.

    A couple questions: Why not a 7th? and have you considered a slim form factor desktop?
