asking for laptop recommendations 

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a laptop.

The recommended specs by my university's engineering college are

* i7 processor
* 16 gb memory
* 250 gb hard drive (Solid-state drive is recommended)
* 1920 x 1080 resolution
* Win 10 (I'm planning on also adding a Linux distro)

I don't know what is reasonable cost-wise.

Thanks! :D

Recommendations on where to buy said machines would also be greatly appreciated :D

@acciomath These are standard specs for most business laptops. Pretty much every vendor has something that fulfils these requirements. For example, Dell has the Latitude series.

@loke ok, good to know! Do you have any particular suggestions?

@acciomath I'm currently waiting for delivery of the Latitude 7400 that my office is providing me.

Until now, I've been using a Latitude E7470 (which, despite the higher number is an older model) which I have been very happy with.

As long as you're not going to play graphics-heavy games, these are very good machines.

The 7400 comes in two versions, the normal one and the two-in-one version. The latter can be folded into a tablet (but has less CPU power)

@acciomath you could probably find a used Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad on eBay that meets these specs for a solid orice
