When relaxing want great screen plus discreet graphics to watch movies…not sure of changing from windows to Apple Mac Pros..confused by whole market scene, genuinely need best advice from those far more qualified than myself.

Our Laptop Recommendation
If you like the Lenovo laptops, the ThinPads are still the leader in the business world. The ThinkPad X1
is an incredibly light and durable laptop, but it comes only with a 14-inch. To get a 15-inch, you’d need to go with the ThinkPad T570. It’s a good, classic, reliable ThinkPad.
For a 15-inch business laptop with a great screen and integrated graphic card, my choices would be either the Dell XPS 15
(see ‘other versions’ when clicking the link to see the 15-inch) or the Asus ZenBook UX501VW
. They’re both very powerful & light 15-inch with a great screen.
For the Dell, you have the choice between HD or 4k screen. The 4k screen is of course better, but it also drains the battery much quicker. So decide if you prefer a higher resolution or longer battery life (I’d personally go with the HD screen and very long battery life).
Since you mentioned it, a MacBook Pro
is also a great computer. But if you’re used to Windows, I’d suggest you stick with it. I’d also recommend you stay away from 17″, I find them way too big to bring on the road.
There you go, I hope it helps! Don’t hesitate if you have any other questions.
