Default Any 14" with a quad core, ie 6700hq?

As above. I was going to build a desktop. But the Mrs needs a new lappy, so its dual purpose.

CPU priority for photoshop, hooked up to 4k monitor so needs HDMI etc

Dell Latitude e7470
Can upgrade memory to 16GB (user serviceable), swap out SSD.
You will want the FHD or QHD model. The touch QHD screen has the best Adobe accuracy rating of the display options.
Has HDMI and DP connectivity.
Can be used with a full docking base.

Wait for one to turn up in the Dell Outlet and save thousands over RRP.

My daughter has run a e7270 i7, 16GB, 1TD mSATA SSD, FHD as her laptop through last 2.5 years of uni running full Adobe Creative Suite. She has a docking base hooked up to a 27 Dell Ultrasharp display in her room.

Personally I use a Dell e7270 with touch FHD screen for my travel photography. Memory upgraded to 16GB and a 512GB Samsung 950 Pro PCI-E drive. It is just a little smaller, lighter and more compact than the e7470.

Wow thats a SERIOUS good choice.

Damn good notebookcheck review, max 390 nits, 96sRGB. Handy little screen by itself. Whats it look like to you though?

Often Im dissapointed by screen ratings in person.

I was hoping to also find one with a small dedicated GPU like a 950m etc.

You can't get the Latitude 7470 with the HQ CPU, I have tried to spec one up for work. My dell rep said no can do.

I ended up ordering the Aorus X3 V6 in this market segment over the Aero 14W. I had been waiting for the Aero 14W (updated Aero 14 w 1060) but the std hdd is SATA m2, so adding a decent hdd added too much to the price.

Aorus has faster CPU, faster RAM, NVMe hdd std but less battery for only $100 more.

EDIT: also has higher res screen

Is the Aorus X3 ultra loud during gaming? My GS60 gets loud enough to drown out the tiny tiny speakers.

FYI, my Aorus had to go back for RMA due to reboots/event viewer hardware errors and BSOD. They returned with no fault found, and I chucked a nana.

Long story short its going back to them today and a new one is on its way ASAP. Looks like a fairly common issue with them. The V7 kaby lake is out now though so might only be a V6 problem

This is the issue (and some of my whinging) here - http://forum.aorus.com/forum/gaming-...r-e2200-errors

If you are serious about productivity, reliability or just plain stability, it's best to avoid junk like Gigabyte, MSI even the RoG laptops.

Stick to enterprise grade laptops like Dell and HP etc.

Some of the HP Envy and Elitebooks fit the purpose.

Yep, lesson learnt

However, in saying that. Ive been using ASUS and Gigabyte laptops for the last 6 yrs or so without issue, so this is the first problem ive had. I do always make sure I have a spare kicking around just in case I need it
