Business computers should be :-
1) Dependable, nothing worse than flying across oceans only to have your notebook fail.
2) have long battery life for travel or remote presentations
3) be simple to operate,
4) wide range of connection options, vga, usb, smartcard, lan, wlan as you never know what you might or might not encounter on the road.
5) light, you get tired very quickly lugging a 3kg+ monster around.
6) fast, try opening a 200mb powerpoint
7) accurate colour rendition, there is no point in displaying anything if the colours are inaccurate, it is totally misleading to you and your clients.
So all of these criteria can be applied to any notebook, your seemingly arbitary subjective selection criteria for these "top 10" Is baffling
Why isn't your top ultrabook here ?
Why isnt your top light gaming computer here?
Why isnt the latest Macbook Pro here ?
Why does you top "business" computer not even have a HDMI output?
Regarding security a "supposedly " important criteria in a "business" notebook..
I read nothing special or unique that sets their security apart from most other notebooks.
Your approach only perpetuates the status quo of branding and supports the manufacturers premium pricing models for notebooks that have nothing particularly unique to justify the pricing.
