For context, am 18 and currently have a reasonably decent pc, 6600k and a 980Ti, etc. Will be going to University this September studying Aerospace engineering and want to have a decent enough laptop to take with me allowing me to do CAD work for the next 4 ish years as well as the odd bit of gaming, I've got a quote from Dell for the new G7 17 inch, I'll attach the spec below, Does anyone know of any similar laptops around the price, bearing in mind that Dell offers a 10% discount to students Which means the i7 & RTX2060 model will cost me considerably less than the £1549 I have been quoted. (price on spec does not include VAT)

From a performance standpoint, I don't think you'll do better for the money.

If this were strictly gaming, you could have a comparable experience with an older i7 and GTX1070 MaxQ for a little less (or a decent margin less if you're prepared to go refurbished) - but you'd be trading off CPU cores that'll be beneficial for CAD.

For example:

£1,080. But a 4c/8t vs 6c/12t.
