Question

Can’t decide which laptop

Hey everyone
I have $1600 and need to buy a good gaming laptop for casual gaming and college stuff.
Should I go for the Lenovo Legion y345,
(which can be customized to have 32 gb of ram, i7 ( 9th generation), rtx 2060 6gb, and 1 tb hdd with 512 ssd), Alienware m15, or hp omen 15t?
(I am so concerned about the weight of the laptop, the available ssd space, and the battery life (when not used for gaming))
Please recommend others if you have something in mind
Thanks

Re: gaming laptop

Weight and ssd space are in the specs, battery life when gaming is short anyway.

Consider buying a basic laptop for college stuff and a gaming desktop.

Sadly a typical problem.

I can't guess why 32GB even for a compsci major. They do not require you to supply supercomputers as for such work they turn to the cloud.

I'm going to dismiss what you wrote and say to stick with these items.

1. The usual i7, 2060 GPU, 16GB RAM and SSD of say 512GB to 1TB. NO MORE HDDS.
2. 15 to 15.6 inch models only as 17 inch models do not fare well as students schlep them about and they fail due to the stress.
3. The longest warranty possible. For gaming laptops I rarely see them reach 4 years with a student. They tend to wear them out or drop them from the backpack or drop the backpack over and over.
