Default 17 inch notebook recommendation for editing and presentation


I need a 17 windows laptop which I would like to use for client presentations (wedding photography) and editing.

Until recently, I had a 17 macbook pro but I would like to move away from mac.

I wild like to have something presentable. I don't really want to have a gaming laptop because it is just too futuristic looking. I liked the clean look of my old macbook pro.

Do you have anything you can recommend?

Take a look at the surface pro range from Microsoft, its kind of a tablet come laptop ideal for presentations and very sleek and professional looking.

sorry just noticed i don't think they do a 17" version

i see what you mean, all the 17" laptops are very tacky looking
lenovo do 27" tablet that looks very impressive lol

I have a 15" HP Presario that is nice looking, but the screen is horrible to see from anything other than directly face on.

My wife has a 17" version and it has a nice brushed black aluminum look and the screen can be seen clearly in any light or from any angle. It has a very professional appearance to it. I think her 17" has a different aspect ratio too.

I like hers and hate mine. Everything about this 15" screen seems out of proportion, but the 17" seems normal. Hers looks more like 3:2 and mine looks like 16:9.

There is something about the screen she has that can be seen from anywhere. They are both considered HP Presario, but are entirely different. Hers cost about 3 times what mine did too.

Possibly something like this:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...959&CatId=4935
The full HD display is an IPS type which provides wider viewing angle without the color shift of the TN displays.
There are quit a few non-gaming laptops which look pretty conventional.
