Basically, I'm starting a new role that requires me to provide my own laptop as the organisation will not (coming back in as an external contractor). I work in finance and accounting, with the heavy lifting being mostly MS Excel and a lot of MS teams meetings (presumably using Citrix VDI).
I'm not the best with laptop & PC specs so I'm here to consult the Ozbargain brains trust.
The low down:
Budget is $1500 to $2000
14" to 15.6" screen
Light-ish weight (doesn't have to be insanely lightweight)
Backlit keyboard would be ideal, but not essential
I was looking at the below Lenovo for $1598 on Amazon which seems decent (at least to the uninitiated like myself!):
Appreciate any assistance and guidance in advance!
