    Question Looking for....

    Recommendations on a new good budget touchscreen laptop and or windows based touchscreen tablet with a keyboard preferably for work. Don't need it to be like stupid fast for gaming but do need it to be snappy to send picture emails and convert files to PDF on the fly and have it be pretty quick processing and such. Haven't had a laptop or a tablet in a very long time so not sure what's good out there these days anymore or what to look for. Been doing some research but reviews are hit and miss since everyone's needs are different but again not looking at something like alienware that's like $50,000 just looking at a good touchscreen laptop and or tablet with keyboard for the money that I can put to work as I'm going to be on the fly more and more it seems like moving forward so the boss approved me to buy something but have to run it by him before I pull the trigger on something. Thanks in advance ladies and gents.

    We use these at work: HP EliteBook x360

    Lightweight, can be used as a tablet or a laptop, solid state drive...

    I'm not a fan of touch screens, but with the stylus, this one actually works pretty well.


    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.

    I have a good laptop I'd sell ya. It's not a touchscreen and it's not bleeding-edge tech, but it's snappy enough for me. It's maxed out on RAM and has an SSD.

    Let me know, I'm pretty sure you've seen me use this lappy before. I'll even throw in the travel bag.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    Thanks dude but has to be touchscreen and my company is paying for it so they want it new with proof of purchase since it’s going on he company card and with a warranty. If it was for my personal use I’d buy yours, that laptop is pretty nice
