    Hi All,

    I need a new laptop to be my main work/development machine.

    Im a web developer and will have various database servers installed, untold web apps, IIS and other things running and including resource heavy stuff like Photoshop, Visual Studio etc.

    256GB min SSD and 1TB HDD, i7 processor or equivalent, as much RAM as possible, will need an ethernet port etc etc

    Looking for a 15" screen probably.

    Budget around £1200 tops, maybe a bit more for a beast of a machine.

    I did quite like the look of Chillblast Photo OC Mobile 4 Photo Editing Laptop

    Thanks in advance ...

    I personally went for a Lenovo p50 with the i7, ssd and 1tb hard disk, and to back this up a surface pro i7 8gb ram, 256gb ssd for when I’m out and about as the p50 is a little heavy.

    Both work well with ms sql, my sql and oracle locally hosted database and connections out to production databases, plus all run necessary programs well, the good thing about the p50 is if your photoshopping is has a program and sensor to ensure colour accuracy of the displayed image.
