Looking for theoretical thick laptop with modern hardware.

So I'm looking at laptops just for the sake of looking at laptops, and i've noticed a lack of... depth, in most products I'm finding. Pretty much I'm looking for a thick laptop, support for 8th gen CPUs (desktop or mobile), 2 drive bays or at least an m.2, and MXM card slot for upgrades. Now I'm also not looking for all the fancy bells and whistles of a rugged laptop like waterproofing or extreme cold proof, but I do prefer a thicker style, and all at a preferably low budget. Does this laptop exist?

BTW google "thick laptops" and number one article is thinnest laptops available.

Yeah. The trend has certainly been thinner products, especially so with Max-Q laptops.

What's your budget? It might be more fruitful to look into a mobile workstation.

The Thinkpad series is pretty renowned.

Not really what I want, I’m looking for a height of greater than 1 inch, and a larger, heavier, thicker, more powerful feel.

I do prefer a thicker style

Are you specifically looking for "thick" laptops for the sake of being thick, or are you banking on the correlation (often, but not always causal) that those laptops with less miniaturization involved can cost less for the performance offered?

More capabilities for upgrades/mods, better cooling, more room for powerful components, and I really don’t like the feel of thinner laptops, like I might break them at any second.

I am familiar with the brand, thanks. After looking again they do have some nice hardware, and about the build quality I'm looking for. Thanks.
