    This is exactly it. Thank you!

    I will be showing this to our account manager now, who's trying to get me to go through Dell support to have this fixed. I'm rejecting the laptops and will probably be going with Lenovo T440s once I've had a couple of quotes back.

    HP Probooks and Lenovo ThinkPads aren't bad quality - I usually recommend the HP ProBooks or Elitebooks with an i5 and likewise for the ThinkPads - usually the disk write speeds in them are pretty good too, but there's always the SSD route for Management staff (if they're that tech savvy!). Lenovo's are a bit more budget-friendly whereas you're looking at around £490+ for a nice performance ProBook/ EliteBook.

    Fujitsu new (used to have Tosh Sat Pro but build quality much worse than before)
    ICT Direct Lenovos for recon - brilliant beasts and such lovely people to deal with

    I had an unofficial quote on brand new Lenovo T440s from our usual all-other-bits-and-bobs-supplier @Millgate; and it seems like they're within our budget for the specs we're after. Going to be trying to get one or two to trial soon
