What laptop 13-14" choose with such requirements?

1. Windows
2. Budget 80-160 thousand
3. Not the brotherly grave, i.e. the ability to replace the memory and drive through access doors
A little more detail. Laptop 9 months of the year used landline that is connected to keyboard, mouse and monitor, and is taken on trips.
A friend bought a DELL XPS, it is all good, but easy memory not to add, and the disk is not replaced. Please advise which models to look at in the price range?
Ideally, of course, a matte screen and ssd+hdd, but in the latter case, 14 inch will not turn shove, probably

I do not think that the memory and disks are changed daily - and therefore it is possible to endure suffering on a one-time ottoviani back cover.
Discs: yet many laptops are equipped with 2.5" drives and at the same time on Board has built-in M2 - here is the double disc variant implementation. Moreover, it will be reasonable to buy a laptop from the lower trim levels with only the hdd and then I can get M2 SSD
yeah. I agree. But here I was now interested in a specific model :) - Margie.Rath commented on April 4th 20 at 00:40
I'm actually in such cases, simply select any appropriate website suitable for your display, processor model, and stares at the keyboard - it is very pretentious sometimes be the location of the cursor keys sometimes.. - Hans commented on April 4th 20 at 00:43

See ThinkPad s!
And what? - Margie.Rath commented on April 4th 20 at 00:42
@Margie.Rath, X series, if you want 13-shku. - Eldred_Beatty commented on April 4th 20 at 00:45

Just recently was chosen according to similar parameters, if the ratio of price-performance the Dell Vostro 5481 https://market.yandex.ru/product--noutbuk-dell-vos... .
2 memory slots - installed 2х32гб, total 64гигабайта. Plugs storage - NVME M. 2 and 2.5 SATA. There are options with integrated graphics and nvidia mx130, Percent i5, i7, but judging by the tests i5-8265 not more than 10 per cent inferior to the i7, so I took the i5. Also most of the time is like a table fitting - I bought a stand fan, home cooling system after that if svykaetsya the minimum salary, inaudible. Watts) but if you take a class higher then the msi prestige 15 6 core intel i7-10710u https://market.yandex.ru/product--noutbuk-msi-pres...
Support, the use this series, great laptop. - jaida.Fadel commented on April 4th 20 at 00:44

With this budget, at least there's plenty to choose from. I want a matte screen - see the first corporate model, that is ASUS and Dell (they have there XPS a more consumer model, and Latitude and even some series - corporate. Although there are XPS Developer Edition on Ubuntu - these models are also more corporate than home). Now how the market works: "matte screen + ethernet port" = corporate laptop. Glossy, the minimum thickness is to the detriment of ports = home. Everything else depends on the specific model, but the drive changes the majority, but models with soldered RAM every year more and more. Have Thinkpad T series more or less components can be changed (so for example Ht490: 8Gb memory soldered + 1 slot more).
With the current SSD prices and your budget why do you the opportunity to put the HDD in the laptop? NVMe SSD gigs of commercials 512 does not close all the needs from the laptop?
SSD without RAID is the risk to lose data at any time. I do not like it, and have to wire a constant external HDD is not suitable, because the laptop is chosen for travel - Margie.Rath commented on April 4th 20 at 00:46
@Margie.Rath, so the ssd RAID is exactly the same risk. Okay, here are some examples:
1) died at the SSD controller. This is the most common failure that they (and not the exhaustion of the number of cycles to which all floated a few years ago). Here at lucky - may be able to revive then, can meet and all the data for a grab. In this situation can help a RAID out of two very different SSDS on different controllers.
2) ran out of write cycles in a cell. If SSD is the same - most likely that's over cycles in the same cell and on the second SSD, so some data will be lost, RAID1 will not help, but to do RAID5 in a laptop most likely will not work.
3) glitch of the firmware of the controller is the most dangerous, because they do not know in advance what impact. RAID can help, but maybe not
And now for the cons RAID specifically for SSD:
* will increase delay. In short, the latency of the array is equal to the highest latency at all. For example, one disk decides at this moment to reorganize the data there and then have all that time to wait. And since even the same SSD not necessarily synchronously will do it even in RAID1 - the probability of this situation increases in the array (you can still read https://habr.com/ru/company/webzilla/blog/227927/ )
* accelerated wear as to if these 2 were SSD without RAID, and just detached.
About "to travel" - well, logically, the laptop on the laptop. But honestly - you buy a laptop for semi-annual trips to the North or to travel civilization, cities? If the second - so do not be simpler'll get fixed on the spot? Just bekapit your data on a second disk of some kind, or the Internet, and in the case of sudden death of the system drive just to buy a new one to roll on it the OS (which is fast even in the case of Windows, even with Linux), get your data back from backup and all. Backup-in any case, it is necessary to do somewhere "out" yet, since the option of laptop theft has not been canceled (as well as any fatal crash, the car will move or shock or something else).
Just now business notebooki do based on the fact that it is easy to carry with you (minimum weight, thickness and, in principle, a reduction in size), and backup - Internet and external media (for this USB 3 ssd is). - adolfo.McGlynn commented on April 4th 20 at 00:49

Oh, I have 3 months to get going, searched and searched for the most optimal in my opinion this is without OS lenovo legion(-10 thousand rubles), but I have yet to support queries of toys, video card needed :)

Perhaps the best in this respect are ASUS and Dell.
What about the fact that they are not normally to extend if desired, it is rather modern trends, from better to take in their current configuration, and then upgrade the entire laptop and all.
the choice of laptops 13" memory 32GB insignificant - Margie.Rath commented on April 4th 20 at 00:52
