If you need a VGA output to connect to an older monitor or conference-room display, the Dell Latitude 3490 is worth a look. It's also a good choice if you plan to leave it plugged into one of these displays most of the time, since you can outfit it with a powerful CPU and 16GB of memory while stripping away other nonessentials to keep the price below $1,000. Otherwise, for a more well-rounded SMB laptop, you should consider the Editors' Choice Lenovo ThinkPad 13 or a consumer ultraportable like the Dell XPS 13.
