I am looking for a new laptop and there are just too many things to consider so I would appreciate some guidance on the matter, I know recomendations are requested alot but I believe my requirements are different to other posts
I am looking for a laptop that will be used for home office use and to play 4k media through my 4k samsung TV, to organise my files on my 2 hard drives and my phone and to write photos to DVD via external drive or internal if there is no compromise to have one and also it will be used to browse the internet and watch media when travelling.
What I require from a laptop:
Reliable 4k 60hz+ video output whilst the fan is not too loud next to the TV to watch movies.
Ssd with 256gb+ for fast start up, preferably 500gb+ (this is my 1st priority of upgrades)
Fast file transfers to portable hard drives and around the laptop.
Enough ports to plug in 2 hard drives and a mouse simultanously.
Long battery life.
What I do not need:
It to look nice
To have a good screen.
To have good speakers.
To have a camera or mic
To be thin or light
To have finger print scanner.
To be able to game unless at an additional cost outside the budget an external gpu capable of battlefield 1 could be plugged in later on.
To have an amazing keyboard.
I would consider used if it still had a long warranty.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
