SMGJohn Posted October 9, 2022 Share Posted October 9, 2022 Hello, I am looking for some advice regarding more modern laptops I am talking post 2014 here and newer. That contains 2 x 2.5" hard drive slots and a DVD drive bay with either mSATA or M.2 slot as well. I currently own a Dell Alienware M17x R4 seeing how its manufactured in late 2011, and my i7-3940XM is dying of old age, the replacement parts are getting more and more expensive. The reason I want a machine with these specs is because I have 3 x 2.5" SSD's with 8TB each to allow me replace my NAS which is bulky, heavy, I need to be able to pick up my entire machine with all my storage on it in case something happens I can pack it down relatively easily, NAS systems are too massive for this. My budget is whatever fits the bill, the laptop has to be relatively comparable or superior to the M17x R4 Size does not matter too much, it could be as large as a 20 inch gaming laptop such as MSI Titan. And yes I know its not any easy task, I been trying to look myself for many months without luck, perhaps someone owns such a machine or knows of something similar could give advice, currently price of M.2 drives larger than 2TB is criminally high price. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
