I'm going to the USA at the end of the year, and want a portable laptop I can carry in my backpack. The current one I have is far too big :/ Gonna sell that, but yeah.




Realistically, needs to have a SD card reader, plus be able to run Adobe Lightroom. I'd stick in an SSD and up the RAM too, so expansion is a big plus.


Apart from that, there isn't much else I need.




Suggestions, please? I had considered the XPS 13 etc, but the lack of a dedicated graphics card scares me, especially for Lightroom. I could be wrong, and it may not need it, though?
