Laptop recommendations

Postby charlienyc » Tue Dec 12, 2017 00:02

I'm in the market for a new laptop for Pyramix Native use as well as other tasks. I'm partial to the Thinkpad pointing stick, and Thinkpad laptops in general. Am I missing something or is it true that no models have touchscreen, pointing stick, and full num pad? Also an actual Ethernet port (rather than Thunderbolt dongle) is probably necessary for Ravenna use. Any recommendations or other considerations I should keep in mind?
Cheers

I am using a USB3 to Ethernet adapter on my thinkpad and it works very well.

That's great - thanks!
Touchscreen though? Will I need to wait another year for that?
