Need help with a new Ultrabook

Postby sbohdan » Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:38 am

I was searching for a thin Ultrabook for my mom but couldn't find anything that has all that she wants. There is thousands of laptops but they all pretty much the same. What I was looking for:

Something small: up to 13"
Thin: Ultrabook
Newest gen 7th gen. i5 or i7 Intel
16GB DDR4 or at least upgradable to 16GB
NVMe PCI-E SSD (256GB or more)
Non-touch screen
Just FHD. No UHD

Preferably with good cooling and long battery life. This one is not crucial.

I found a lot of 6th gen. with DDR3 and usully just 8GB RAM. Most Ultrabooks only come with 8GB and usully just DDR3 and regular SSD.

Can anyone give me a suggestion?

No, There is one but that one has an UHD screen and she doesn't want that (it is retarded anyway to have 4K resolution on a 13" screen). It is also touchscreen and she doesn'tlike that. Stupid Dell has no options to upgrade the RAM with the non-touch version.
