Guys I need a new laptop, currently have been using a macbook pro, like 2013 or some shit, hate it for what I do, sysadmin of 99% windows env.

Im looking for standard well supported hardware that can run both windows and linux, i prefer to stay in linux, might not run windows at all.

anyone have any recommendations? Looking at something around the same cost as a cheaper macbook pro.

thanks /g/ents

op here again might add that work will be paying for this so it's not my money, it will be my workhorse though.

looking at thinkpad w541 or whatever is current or a system76. my boss might bitch if he finds out the system67 doesn't come with windows, but the hardware seems ace.

Laptops were always meant for the rich traveling business man, I rather build/buy a expensive computer that will last at least 6 years and a cheepo laptop every 3 years.

the newer HP notebook series of laptops are pritty durable the ones with the amd a10 and 8gb of ram are a great deal and $200 Intel cerelion with 4gb of ram is better then a $200 pc build
I work for wallmart and I make the adds and get to test these computers (including drop test) and these hps are damn good for the price

also avoid wallmarts lenovo dell and nextbook like the pleauge
