Eurocom Sky X6: Best Business Laptops
Small Business Budget: $2,000
Not long ago you'd expect to pay $2K on a decent business laptop. Today that money buys the ultimate in portable power: the EuroCom Sky X6 mobile workstation.
This is no ordinary business laptop; it's bigger and heavier—8.6 pounds—than you normally tote around. But unlike lighter laptops, the Sky X6 packs full desktop features into a form factor that you can take with you.
Those features start with your choice of desktop processors, available up to Intel Core i7-6700K. Graphics power comes from a selection of Nvidia GPUs, including the company's Quadro family of workstation graphics chips. You can equip the Sky 6 with up to 64GB of RAM, and you can augment the 17.3-inch 1080p screen with up to three additional external displays when you're at your desk—for a total of four active screens at once. The machine even supports up to four physical drives in its copious case.
Who needs all this power? Think architects, engineers, designers, and IT developers: anyone who needs to take the power of a desktop PC on-location. Unlike most business laptops, the Sky X6 is completely upgradeable—swap in a new CPU, GPU, and hard drives, effectively future-proofing your investment.
