:welcome:    eclipse84,

 

The specifications that you list as being required are slightly confusing as in 2 Xs 27" screens are hardly portable.

 

- easy to travel with being light and small stationary kind, with docking station, 2 screens (27 plus x 2), std keyboard
- high secure performance
- portable
 

 

 

Can you tell us the following;

What is the main use of the computer, stocks and shares, CAD or light office work etc.

What is the maximum budget.

In which country will the items be purchased.

Are you looking for a small form factor computer that can handle two 27" screens.

 

The screens will be sourced separately from the computer btw.

Hi,
 
Thank you for replying to my query right away, i really appreciate it.
 
OK, first i believe this is the desktop HP p6046sc:
 
And to answer your questions:
 
What is the main use of the computer, stocks and shares, CAD or light office work etc.
- heavy use - CAD, ERP system, accounting, etc.
 
What is the maximum budget.
- right now, we don't have a set budget, so if we have 2-3 options then we'll just weigh/compare things
 
In which country will the items be purchased.
- either Norway or Denmark or Sweden, if we can buy thru online, is ok as well
 
Are you looking for a small form factor computer that can handle two 27" screens.
- yes, small form factor computer that can handle two (or even 4) 27" screens
 
 
Thanks again.. :)

personally i'd be looking at i7 systems with good graphics capability and lots of ram.

there's this 3XS X99 Micro :- http://www.scan.co.u...aming-x99-micro

or a cheaper option non i7 pc the 3XS GW-MS10 :- http://www.scan.co.u...-uk-3xs-gw-ms10

 

if your looking to replace the desktop with a laptop then something like this :- http://www.msi.com/p...l#hero-overview

Best I could find will only support 3 displays but has an i7 CPU and 8GB of 1600MHz Ram that is upgradeable to 16GB, if you do consider this computer ask if they will upgrade the Ram to 16GB for you, Fujitsu Esprimo Q920 Ci7-4765T here

 

You are welcome btw  :)

don't forget phillpower2, for cad work integrated cpu graphics just isn't going to cut it, a machine really does need a good powerful dedicated card for any serious cad work.

 

then again, for serious cad work, you'd probably also need a serious cad build, xeon cpu's, error correcting ram, etc. etc.

Thanks Terry, totally forgot about the CAD work  :oops:

 

Suggested the Fujitsu over the 4 display supporting ASUS M51AD-DE035S here

the first, hpz230, is no, it only has integrated graphics,

 

the rest yes, they all have nvidia quadro 4GB graphics cards minimum by the looks of them.

 

for the cpu you want either xeon's or i7's for best performance, the more cores the better.

 

for the ram you want at least 16GB but again the more the better so 32GB or even 64GB or more if the system supports that much.

 

for hard drives you really want a ssd for the operating system and a 2nd high rpm normal hard drive for data storage, 7200rpm or 10,000 rpm for best performance.
