Here are a list of laptops from pcpartpicker that are under $1500 don't think you will be able to find a laptop that come preloaded with a 4tb ssd for anything under $1500 but you could always replace it

  • Sorry, but laptop and 4TB SSD??? Why?
  • Are you going to start using it as a server?
  • And Your headline says "Looking For $1500 Laptop". Which one do you want - a laptop or you want get rid of your money?
  • My recommendation - first of all look for a good laptop and if needed, add later as much memory as You want. SSD's are now so cheap and most of good laptops already have two places, ie for traditional SSD and for NVMe. And the new NVMe-s are so small, for example mine is about 2cm x 2cm x 3mm and it's 256GB.

Okay so if you wanted a 4tb ssd you might be looking at the $1000 mark which leaves about $500 for your laptop just something to think about.

I would say what do you need a 4tb ssd for? It might be cheaper (it will be cheaper) to get a decent 4tb external hdd
