Looking to replace my work laptop. 

 

I'm quite taken with the flip-book format and looking for advice.

 

- One of the directors has an HP Elitebook 360 1030, which I like the look of and he is very happy with.

 

- IT have recommended a Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

 

I will be running W10 and O365 on whatever I get.  I travel a lot.

 

My usage is reasonably light these days.  Email, spreadsheets, word, small databases, pdf documents, creating presentations. I connect to a server for any serious number crunching.

There is an SMB version of the X360 available now...  the ProBook X360 440  G1, which has a reasonably grunty processor.  Upgrading to a 3Y manufacturers warranty should only be around $120 +GST extra.

 

It's not as light as the EliteBook version, which may be a factor if you are travelling internationally on a regular basis.

Dynamic:

Is SMB a small to medium business or a technology type?
