      Their prices are expensive compared to Dell outlet....
      merely at clientco for the entertainment


        I second the Dell XP13.
        Great bit of kit. I am not a dev so not sure if it meets the needs.
        I went to the client I was working for at the time, and asked their supplier as a dell partner if they could get a decent deal and then order it through my ltd.
        Managed to get a good deal with it that way.


          Bought my third Thinkpad T480s in January (after owning T420s and the T450s) I love them. Went for slightly older model as this is the last Thinkpad that can be user upgraded (according to the general consensus on the forums anyway).

          This one has 16GB RAM core i5, 128 SSD OS boot + 512 SDD for other files; does everything I need it for. £680 notes and £800 all in with the Thinkpad dock from ebuyer. I am too tight fisted to pay over 1500 for a laptop.

          Got it from eBay, however understand there is a lot of risk with that but fingers crossed I was lucky. Only downside is the US keyboard but I use my Das mechanical keyboard most of the time.

          He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

          I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.
