    I'm looking to replace the laptop I take out with my telescope (amateur astronomer). Currently its an old HP 6910p (yes, almost an antique) with 8GB RAM.

    I'm looking for smallish (13-15" screen), 8GB or more, USB3, and builtin optical drive. Fingerprint reader for bonus points! Ideally HP, Lenovo, or other upper tier manufacturer. I've found a few 17" lappies that have an internal optical drive, but am struggling to find smaller ones.

    Please can someone point me at some current (last year or so) lappies that fit my specification?

    PS No I don't want an external drive.

    What's your budget for this? I think you'll struggle to get a 13" laptop with an optical drive, but loads of 15" laptops have optical drives built in.

    The Lenovo Ideapad 330 might be a good option, but there's no fingerprint reader onboard (may be an option though).
