Good morning,    And I would like the say Thank You In advance.

                          I am getting ready to purchase a new laptop for my professional use. I am transitioning from a Telecom job to hopefully a position in an entry level Network Security career.  I will be using my laptop for work and studies (white hat hacking, network Security testing)   I know that I need a strong state of the art processor and a strong 4TB hard drive with additional memory also.  I need a good recommendation on what manufacturer to start with and a good Laptop model to go with from there. I do not need any of the special video gaming cards or any of that superfluous crap. I need a strong, fast, dependable hard working machine. That will be good for the next say 5 years . I have around 1300.00 to spend.  Also a dependable company for Tech support and of course easy to work with for warranty help. I have had good success with HP. And I'm thinking of going with a Microsoft laptop to just stay close to the software source.



Thanks in advance for your Expert advice

As far as I am aware, 1.5TB is the largest laptop hard drive available, but 1TB is probably the largest you will find installed. You might be able to fine one with 2 drive bays. Business Class laptops are the only ones I would recommend. HP's business line is much better then their consumer line. Personally, I'm more partial to Lenovo. What size of screen are you looking for? Why do you need so much space on the internal drive?
