Unlimited budget for laptop. I’m in a situation were I have approval to buy a new laptop and get refunded for the price for doing Cyber Security and personal use. Right now I’m doing all my work through a XPS15 9570, which I already understand is highly spec’d already. But just want to get another opinion on what would be the best option, I’m thinking about the 2021 Mac pro 13 inch fully spec’d but was wondering what you all would suggest? Are mac’s good for doing analysis and pentesting? Also will be running through Parrot OS



I would normally recommend a Mac laptop except I recently read the ones with the M1 processor can’t drive two external monitors. I tried this past week with a MacBook Air M1 and read this info. Technically it can be done with the MacBook Pro M1 but isn’t supported by Apple.

With that in mind, I’d take a close look at the ThinkPads. I used to have one when I traveled weekly as a consultant and loved the hardware.


My choice would be a Thinkpad and not some overpriced trash like Apple products.


I use dell i13 5000. You could go with the think pad choice as well but thinkpad batteries don’t last as long as my dell.
