Laptop with spec: i7, 16GB Ram, 512GB SSD, business use. Budget 1500

Hey guys, I cant for the heck of it cannot find a laptop with the following spec:

i7: 8xxx-10xx (quad core)
16GB Ram
512-1TB SSD
Screen size: 14-15"
Business use and not gaming but a half decent graphics card would be a bonus (most run 1080p easily these days right? Im years away from dedicating to 4K).
Budget: 1500 Max
Would prefer ASAP as well so not too interested in waiting for a 2 week delivery or so.

The closest Ive seen is an Asus.

The only thing is, when I saw it on a youtube review, I didnt like the case color at all.

Thanks in advance for any links and help.

For a business laptop that you’re actually going to carry around, IMO probably the most important features are:

1. SSD
2. Screen type and resolution vs. pixel density
3. Footprint and weight
4. Battery life
5. Keyboard layout

I notice many of the above details are not considered in your description. CPU speed is much lower down on the list, as is GPU speed (as long as it supports hardware h.265 HEVC decode acceleration).

Bestbuy likely wont have anything good.

Have a look here - https://www.newegg.ca/p/pl?N=100006741% ... rder=PRICE

I like Asus however I hate their support which is why i would lean toward lenovo or other companies for better support/warranty if ever needed.
