Whats the most powerful laptop I can get for under $2500?


Feb 5, 2016
I'm looking for a laptop that would be used for business.The tasks would include word,excel,blue beam, sketch up, and quickbooks. I multi task a lot. My budget is up to $2500. I prefer windows some of the models I am looking at include the:
1.Dell xps 15 i7(w/ new skylake), 512 pcl ssd, 16gb ram, not sure if i care to have the 4k res.Heating issues??
2. Macbookpro with retina 15" i7,512 ssd, 16 gb ram (boot camp windows)
3.Possibly the new lenevo thinkpad 460s or possible p50s when they are released
4. Are Hp Zbook 15" with similar specs any good.
5. Dell precision?

What would be the most powerful workstation for that budget with graphics being last.Any thoughts would be great.Trying to make a purchase within the next 30 days. Thanks.

Grrrr.... This isn't a workstation...:pfff:

If you're looking to type stuff, get the XPS 13. It has good everything.
If you're looking into getting an actual workstation for video editing and jazz, perhaps MSI, Sager, or Origin workstations.
