Asus ExpertBook P1 15-inch professional laptop (P1510CJA-C51P-CA)

This laptop is a compelling solution for productivity and has a few enterprise-class features.

Under the hood, I have a few notes: a bit of RAM is soldered to the board, documentation is a bit spotty, and there's no mention of a TPM. As a result, I'm hesitant to recommend it in a business context, but at home, it could be a contender.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Laptop which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this Laptop.$30+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $20 on accessories, for a total cost of $1220.
