Solid 13 inch, non touch with RG-45...

I am having a hard time finding a solid smaller laptop that is sturdy enough for work and still includes an Ethernet port. The touch screen isn't needed and will never be used. It also won't be used for playing top tier games or video processing.

I am brand agnostic, I just need it to work.

Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

So the Razer.

My son has the 15 inch model and would buy again.

I don't get why the usual USB to Ethernet or dock won't do for this one. Otherwise I'd go with the usual XPS 13. And the XPS with Ethernet (the 2 in 1) has a touch display. I don't understand why that's a deal breaker. I have a few touchscreens at the office and folk just ignore the feature.

The touch screen is not a deal breaker just a wasted feature which a lot of companies upcharge for. As for the dongle, I am out in the oil fields (Midland) and if I drop that thing it could easily be a couple hundred mile drive to find a replacement. Bring on the drone deliveries.

I really like the xps 13, and may end up overlooking the missing jack. I just figured I would shop around first.

Thanks for the info.

We didn't pay more or less for that one.

So I can only guess that we must be shopping too hard.
