How many unit you need?
For your usage just a Dell Latitude with i7 will do.
Some models don't hit $2.8k unless we are talking about mobile workstation.
You can take a look at roughly the prices of Latitude.

http://www.server2u.sg/index.php?rou...%20latitude%20

However business prices are subjective according to business type, how many unit you need. configuration (Business one can customize
and add things like 4G WWAN card for use with SIM card which
consumer laptop doesn't have)

Treat those prices with a pinch of salt especially if you intend to
buy multiple units or a different specs in mind.
i only need one unit for myself, i guess do not require those 'business' functions that u mentioned. No need GPU, just a fast CPU for multi tasking with coding and databases

Business function? Business laptop and consumer laptop are
different not to mention their specs.
Your requirement is need a i7 with Intel HD which business laptop
like Dell Latitude should fit you well.

If you don't want to call to get quote, than Dell showroom at
Marina Square have both business range and consumer range
for you to look at.

At the most near $2k only, don't need till $2.8k.
Than you add a dock so you can undock your laptop easily
if you need to go onsite/other locations.

Cheers.

Err.. is can but for education price you need to be a education staff/student
to qualify.
For those purchase need to see pass one.

Asiapac is distri for Fujitsu laptop.
If you are working in school as teacher and etc. actually can get
cheaper laptop but through education resellers.

Literally everyone i know who has owned/bought a lenovo ****ing hated it lol. My colleague blew 3k on a 'business' laptop from lenovo... within 24 hrs the touchpad crashed and she had to take leave just to bring the damn thing in for servicing.

Dont even friggin understand how lenovo can charge so much for a crappy i7 laptop with no dgpu or anything else special simply by claiming its 'business' level smh. My 2.1k Prime 15 literally weighs slightly heavier but can do everything that overpriced nonsense can do and better. There's literally better ultrabooks out there with better specs for cheaper lol. To be frank the 'enterprise' level 'security' is a marketing gimmick and a joke unless you're really doing some serious work on the fly. If not just dont watch porn, install a good antivirus, backup your data regularly and ANY laptop can be a 'Business' laptop.

Have never heard anyone have an actually decent expeerience thus far with that brand.

Yup I totally agree. Bought a Lenovo Ideapad early August; within 2 weeks, the battery won't charge & external speakers got no sound when plugged in.

Had to bring it down twice to the Svc Center to get the problems fixed. Definitely first & last piece of Lenovo crap for me.

Has Lenovo stepped up the quality of their consumer-grade laptops?

Some years back the rule of thumb among most of my buddies was that the only Lenovo laptops that were reliable enough to consider purchasing are the Thinkpads. Everything else were time bombs waiting for all manner of weird hardware failures.


Anyway, back to TS:
Anything with an i7 processor (or an AMD equivalent) and 16GB of memory should suffice. Are you performing frequent writes to the DB, or just SELECT operations?

I'd say no, still the same lenovo based on personal and friends' experience but then again, none of us here know the official statistics since no one releases that stuff.
