The Apple MacBook Pro 16 still holds bragging rights when it comes to the maximum storage capacity available in a traditional portable laptop.
Apple uses a proprietary approach, plugging memory chips directly into the motherboard to reach a whopping 8TB of storage, while only a handful of vendors even offer 4TB PCIe SSDs.
OWC has recently joined Sabrent as only the second consumer vendor to offer a 4TB NVMe PCIe M2.2280 SSD. OWC's Aurora P12 costs $ 1,149.88, while Sabrent's offering, known as Rocket, is available for only $ 849.99 from Amazon (roughly £690/AU$ 1335).
Why does that matter? Well, because you can plug two into a Windows laptop to match the MacBook Pro's 8TB capacity.

There’s only one laptop vendor worldwide (Eurocom), to our knowledge, that bundles its laptops with these 4TB drives – and they’re neither as cheap nor as portable as Apple’s slim-and-thin mobile workstation.
As for the Sabrent Rocket, it is an x4 model that comes bundled with the Acronis True Image software, Toshiba’s BICS3 flash and Sabrent’s own RKT303 controller. Its performance speeds can reach up to 3450 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write).
Just bear in mind, this is a Gen 3 rather than a Gen 4 SSD.

Laptops with large screens are usually considered unwieldy and cumbersome, unless you're talking about Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro.
However, the LG Gram 17 is an exception, giving even Apple's slimline device a run for its money. Weighing only 2.95 pounds, it's hailed the lightest 17-inch laptop ever made.
In designing a super thin and light laptop with a 17-inch screen, LG has succeeded where all other have failed. The device has been so well received that retailing giant Costco even commissioned an exclusive version for its customers.

The older and cheaper version ($ 1,200/£929 at Amazon) comes with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 GPU, 16GB memory, and a 256GB SSD. It also has a battery LG says will power your device for nearly 20 hours – yes, 20 hours.
It's not waterproof or shockproof, but its magnesium alloy chassis makes it more resistant than most laptops of this size. It also boasts a dedicated numeric keypad and adheres to the rigorous MIL-STD-810G standards.
The 17-inch display (which has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels) is the cherry on the rather large cake.
It's worth noting UK customers will also be able to purchase the Gram 17 straight from Amazon, but should be wary of additional taxes levied.
