Pretty much what the title says.
Not going to be used for gaming at all, I just want to be able to plug my laptop into a 4K TV for youtube and some UK TV catch up services (BBC iPlayer/ ITV Hub, etc) as my VPN works through my laptop and I want to be able to watch stuff on the TV.
I have recently found out that even though pretty much all new i3/i5/i7 Intel integrated graphics support 4K 60Hz output most laptops only have HDMI 1.4 which means they are limited to 4K at 30Hz.
On top of the integrated graphics being able to (theoretically) output 4K at 60Hz, most of these laptops actually have switchable graphics with a second dedicated graphics card but again with HDMI 1.4 chip on the motherboard none of that matters.
So, I know some VPNs are configurable to work with TVs, I know some laptops support Thunderbolt 4K at 60Hz but I'm not looking for a workaround, I want to just buy a new laptop with a HDMI 2.0 output and be done with it.
One requirement is I really don't want a gaming laptop as they are chunky, I rather get a regular looking laptop otherwise the Dell 7577 seems like a great deal.
So those of you who are in the know or know what to look for, is there such a laptop? Something like the Dell 7577 (i7, 16GB, for $1299) but in a smaller package.
