Is the MSI GL62M too much


I'm looking into buying a new laptop. I will mainly use it for music production, school work and some light gaming (tbh I only play War Thunder every now and then).
I want to invest in something decent and my eye fell unto the MSI GL62M 7REX which I can buy for around 1000 euro. I'm only worried this is a bit too much for what I need. I travel by train two times a week and will carry the laptop around in a backpack when I do, I don't take it to class so it will only leave the house when I travel between my two destinations by train.
What do you guys think? If you have another laptop you could suggest to me, I would really like to hear so!

best regards,

It's very nice.
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834154623 is what I'll use for reference

To compare performance my wife's new laptop is at https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07661CYPD/

This is your very nice run of the mill gamer without going over the top in my opinion.
There are 15 inch models which get my nod for any travel such as

But prices differ across the map so my view is the combo of i7 and the 1050 GPU is very mainstream. Most gamers will be happy.

Thanks! I'll probably just go for the MSI, in case I ever decide to play Battlefield 1 or something, I can always fall back in that one!
