tolnep Posted April 27 Share Posted April 27 im in in the market for a new laptop. Current laptop is precision 4800 with 32 gb memory and 2.5 TB diskspace. It runs Windows Server Datacenter 2022. its main purpose is to back up a desktop workstation running windows server datacenter. My main dev efforts are multiple VMs (its one reason i run datacenter) and various database systems, sql server, oracle, postgres on windows, rhel, unbuntu , debian. screen resolution is 3200 x 1800. l like the current size of the 4800. so i'd like to get a new laptop of approximately the size. its unclear with the 7680 what you give up compared to the 7780 and there appears to be a 'performance' version of the 7680 which is thicker and provides acess to an m2 drive. config target would be the top end cpu, 64 gigs of memory, 1TB drive, highest end resolution, biggest power supply, medium GPU since graphics is not something i need in a laptop. when i get it, im gonna try installing windows server datacenter 2022. dunno if it will work. but my latops going back to older 32 bit configs always ran windows server. i have an enterprise developer license that allows me to install any windows os i want. looking for a little help here. since i cant find details about the so-called performance case for the 7680. im not looking forward to not being able to carry extra batteries if i go somewhere, and i will miss my mouse buttons and full keyboard but it is what it is. thanks for any info.
