I have an old Dell laptop, eight years old, 17" screen, i7, 16GB, 500GB SSD and it runs like stink (that means really well and fast). The SSD and increasing the memory from 8GB to 16Gb made a *huge* difference. The battery is a bit worn down, only lasts 3 hours instead of 4.5 hours but I use it on mains power nearly all the time so it doesn't really matter. The screen is just now starting to show a bright patch at one corner occasionally.

No touch screen but the pointing stick and the touchpad work very well along with a standard old Dell mouse. Lots of USBs and supports three screens via the docking station.

It's eight years old but stands up well against my lenovo work lappy which still has only an i5 and a 250 SSD.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
