My wife needs a new laptop and I want to get something 13" or smaller that has USB-C power delivery. I am finding a lot of computers with USB-C + DisplayPort but it is hard to search for the ones that have power delivery, too. I would like an 8th-gen processor (i3 is fine), 8 or 16 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD (NVMe preferred but SATA would be okay). No dedicated graphics needed and would like to find something <$600ish.
What I want to do is to get the Dell P2419HC monitor which is about $150 refurb'd. It has USB-C and a bunch of ports and a bunch of other ports. You can get the little soundbar for it, plus connect the keyboard and mouse to it. Then when you come home with the laptop, you just have to connect the single USB-C cable coming from the monitor to access the peripherals, send out the video signal and charge the laptop -- basically eliminates a dock.
I know the XPS 13 and some of the upper-end Inspirons have it, but I don't need the luxury stuff and would prefer a Latitude for sturdiness/upgradability/repairability and am not finding much. Any suggestions?
