Hey everyone,

Just wanted to ask for a friend what a good choice for a laptop would be if used mostly for schoolwork and some gaming (titles include Rocket League, maybe GTA5). Decent battery life ~5+ hours and don't want it much heavier than 6 lbs. An SSD would be nice and a CD drive optional. Screen size 15.6" max for weight reasons. Thanks!

Not for a system with a 960m video card, 512 GB SSD and lighter weight. The few systems cheaper are heavier, have less battery life due to higher wattage CPUs, smaller SSD and/or are lower quality brands like Acer.

The bit issue is not heavy and good battery life which right there ups the prices.

512GB SSD is way too much, since laptop graphics cards are not replaceable I'd rather invest on a more potent GPU
