    Hello everyone,
    I desperately need help since I can’t decide which laptop to buy.
    I need something transportable, rugged and well built which can last at least for 6 years.
    I use my laptop mainly for heavy web browsing (30+ tabs), web sites maintenance, writing articles.
    Secondarily I seldom use adobe premier for create posters, flyers and booklet. Sometimes adobe photoshop and Filmora for video editing and montage. I don’t use my laptop for play video games.

    These are the options that I spotted, basically I need an i7, 16gb ram and ssd storage in a portable size without pass 1300$.

    Lesnovo ThinkPad 13 - 2nd gen
    Screen 13.3" (1920x1080) Full HD, matte / Intel Core i7-7500U (2.7 - 3.5 ghz) / RAM 16gb ddr4 2133 / SSD 512 gb (idk if sata or PCIe)/ Intel HD Graphics 620
    1039€ (1282$)

    HP ProBook 430 g5
    13.3" (1920x1080) Full HD, matte / Intel Core i7-8550U (1.8 - 4.0 ghz) / RAM 16 gb ddr4 2400/ SSD 256 gb PCIe/ Intel UHD Graphics 620 /
    862€ (1063$)

    Asus VivoBook S14 S410UN
    14.0" (1920x1080) Full HD, matte / Intel Core i7-8550U (1.8 - 4.0 ghz) / RAM 16 gb ddr4 2133 / HDD 1 tb + SSD 256 gb sata / nVidia GeForce MX150, 4 gb /
    1051€ (1296$)

    Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E470
    14" (1920x1080) Full HD, matte / Intel Core i7-7500U (2.7 - 3.5 ghz) / RAM 16 gb ddr4 2133/ SSD 256 gb sata / nVidia GeForce GT 940MX, 2 gb
    837€ (1033$)

    What’s your opinion? Especially about quality, hardware, durability, the best deal overall.
    Ps. I excluded dell XPS 13 and thinkpad t470, E480 because we’re to much expansive with the same specs.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Based upon your selection the Asus VivoBook S14 S410UN has a better graphic card and the cpu is more powerful.

    HP ProBook 430 g5 is really a good choice, I have it and can say that it's definetely worth buying. It has really nice quality, powerful processor, decent keyboard, good stereo system (even such music fan as I was pleased with it), display and battery, it works really long in autonomous mode. According to all these specs its price is very nice too so I can definetely recommend you to buy it. Personally I found only one visible minus in it, I mean small amount of RAM but that's not very important in my case :)
    Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E470 is a nice one too as I know but it has more cons. They're the absence of USB Type-C and LED keyboard backlight, limits for later upgrades and a warranty only for 12 months so I'm not sure if it's a wise choice for a long perspective...
    Also Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro https://linkto-blog.com/2017/11/14/xiaomi-mi-notebook-pro-fingerprint/ is nice for your specifications too https://www.techspot.com/products/laptops/xiaomi-mi-notebook-pro-156.172915/ and has good quality, one of my friends has it and he's rather satisfied with this laptop.
