Need a recommendation! Can't...
Hello all! I'm currently working from a 5-year-old Toshiba Satellite and am in need of an upgrade. I've done some research, but I'll admit that PCs aren't my area of expertise, so I need some help.
I'm a graduate student who uses the internet for research (a ton) and runs a lot of programs at once every day. I use my laptop to program some for school as well (Python, Java, some SQL stuff). Other than that, I work as a graphic designer but currently can't work at home because my laptop can't handle it. I run Adobe Creative Cloud software including InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere, and Acrobat. I travel a good bit and live away from home, so I use Skype frequently. Also (I've noticed that this matters when laptop shopping), I'm not a gamer. Just a Netflix streamer! Macs are out for me for sure.
Here are some of my specifications: 2-in-1, 14 or 15-inch screen, high-quality display (with high RGB coverage), lightweight (lighter than 4 lbs would be amazing), thin, long battery life, and durable build. I think I'll only need an i5 intel core processor and probably only 8GB of ram (I save a lot of stuff to the cloud), but you tell me if you think I'll need more. I've been saving up for a new PC for a while and plan on using it for about 5 years or more, so I'm not looking for the cheapest option. I'm super interested in the Yoga models, but I'm not sure which one I need. I've also looked at the Dell XPS 15, but I think I like the Lenovos better. I'm open to opposition on that.
Suggestions would be very much appreciated. I want to make a good investment! Thank you!
