If you are buying brand new, I do not see any value in paying the price premium for a portable form factor, screen, keyboard, and trackpad. Once you get your staking machine set up, you do not need any of these features, you can just remote into the staking machine from your daily driver computer. The low profile form factor will actually be a downside when taking thermal performance in to account. Laptops typically do not include an ethernet port now, which means you will be relying on wifi. Wifi is very reliable now, but you can't beat the simplicity and reliability of a cable.
