HP Zbook laptops all the way for me
We use Lenovo Thinkpad workstations.
The 17" models can have up to three internal SSD drives installed and up to 128GB of RAM.
I like to have three internal SSD drives in case I need to present evidence at trial; I can have forensic images on one internal SSD drive, the forensics database on the second internal SSD drive, and the OS on the third internal SSD drive.
If you call the Lenovo business sales line, they can give you a significant discount off the internet advertised price.
