Context is king - if you're a Video Editor you'll need a powerful beast. If you're in Sales. you'll want to consider how portable your machine is and if you're just not bothered something in between the two may work. However, you will need to make a choice between MACos or a the Windows Operating System. This list assumes you've opted for the latter.
Here are 4 great works laptops you may wish to consider:
HP 800 Series
This machine offers awesome performance and looks pretty hot too. With a 7th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256 drive, this has to be a consideration for any worker. Other cool bits include a docking connector and some cool keyboard shortcuts.
Lenovo X1 Carbon
If the HP 800 Series and Dell XPS 13 are Super Cars, this is a Sportscar. Its just not as sexy as the others, but it does boast so much power it'll blow your socks off. If you're in business and serious about it, look no further.
From a Intel Core i5 processing, 8GB of RAM and a range of screen options which mean you can upgrade from 1,920 x 1,080 to an even better screen (like you'd ever need more).
Dell XPS 13
This thing is gorgeous - the design is almost otherworldly thanks to the edge to edge display against its 13 inch screen. The base model ships with an 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB and 128GB of storage in a solid state drive.
Microsoft Surfacebook 2
Microsoft entered the laptop market as a latecomer but that says nothing for the quality of their offerings. This machine is as good as any. The power is equal to anything else on this list. The base model will give you an Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB memory + the option to go "real large" with the Nvidia GeForce graphics card.
