Hello All,

I am looking for a good laptop for my daughter who is entering college in the fall. I have read all of the online "best laptops for college" in 2020, but none of them quite hit the mark - especially with one particular requirement I am looking for - a Kensington or Noble lock slot.

The great ultra portables are powerful, but they are so thin they usually leave out the lock slots. I have a lot of experience with laptops, and here are the specs I am looking for:

14" 1920x1080 screen - touch screen not critical
i7-8565U or better
GPU does not need to be discreet
16GB RAM
512GB nvme ssd
Windows OS
Kensington lock slot....

Does anyone know of a good option that would fit this? I'll even take recommendations on laptops with the lock slots and then dig on the manufacturers site..!

I would like to keep the price less than $1500 if I can manage it. I personally use a Dell 7400 which fits these requirements except that it comes with a vPro CPU so the price is more than 2k....

Thanks,
Rhyalus
