Help me find a mobile workstation

Question

Never thought it's that hard to find this kind of a machine.

My friend wants a windows workstation, graphical performance is a non-issue

His minimum requirements are

1. i7 CPU

2. 16GB memory

3. 3K or more screen

4. Lightweight as possible

5. 13 to 15 inch

6. Preferably aluminum or other high quality body.

7. SSD of 512GB or a magnetic drive that is upgradable.

8. Under 2K USD would be nice.

We've only been able to configure the Lenovo Thinkpad W with such a configuration.

Any other options out there ?

How about a Thinkpad Carbon X1 ? http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/x-series/x1-carbon/   you can customize it to have 16gb ram and with 512gb ssd. keep in mind with this particular system the Ram is integrated into the mainboard so you would wanna buy the biggest config for ram , however the ssd is an M2 drive so you could go with the stock drive and perhpas find a cheaper 512 m2 drive to pop in.

I think the ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501VW would probably work really well. Has a quad core i7 instead of a low power i7, can get 16 gb ddr4, up to 4k screen, made of aluminium, and lastly can get a 512 gb ssd.

You haven't mentioned the primary use case, makes it easier to recommend. Based on the requirements either the precision 5510 or the zbook studio G3.
