I would like to know what is the best display available on a memory and hard drive 'upgradable' laptop.

I don't know that a touch screen is needed but realize windows is heading in a touch direction. Display port might be needed for a future 4k monitor but I am not up to speed on this requirement.

I know a desktop would be a good fit except I like to move around the house a lot. If I am doing a super serious project I would hook up to the monitor.

Thanks in advance for you help and suggestions.

Thanks TechyInAZ !!
