17 inch notebook recommendation for editing and presentation


I need a 17 windows laptop which I would like to use for client presentations (wedding photography) and editing.

Until recently, I had a 17 macbook pro but I would like to move away from mac.

I wild like to have something presentable. I don't really want to have a gaming laptop because it is just too futuristic looking. I liked the clean look of my old macbook pro.

Do you have anything you can recommend?

Looks just like a Mac but isn't? Get a Samsung.

As a long-time Windows user looking to get out of the system, I can't imagine why anyone would leave Mac for Windows. Windows XP, maybe, if it were still around, but Windows 10? No way!

https://www.maingear.com/custom/note...se17/index.php Maingear's basic models are actually pretty understated, but very expensive if you don't plan on gaming. The 17's 1080p panel also has poor color accuracy.

One option is to get an older Razer Blade Pro (which all have fairly decent displays) and cover the logo with a black decal or something. And if you're willing to consider something slightly smaller, Dell has the XPS 15 which IMO is a beautiful and efficient design.
