I’m looking for a laptop for University

$800-$1000

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?

13”-15”

3. What screen resolution do you want?

1080p but it would be nice if it was higher and had dedicated graphics

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?

portable

5. How much battery life do you need?

8 hours or more, classes and essays

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?

I’d like to game, I play Beam NG Drive, Euro Truck Simulator 2 and League (Medium to High settings)

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)

Programming, engineering software, CAD, etc.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?

500+ GB (an SSD would be really really nice, as would a 1TB)

Amazon?
Souq.com
But I’ll probably buy from an actual proper store

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?

5 years.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?

Probably none

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.

Any, it just has to have good quality and I’d really like it to be sleek (I don’t like how gaming laptops like the Lenovo Y700 looks)

13. What country do you live in?

UAE

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed

I’ll probably bring this on holiday or something, I’d also like for it to be quite good looking (i.e HP envy, Surface Pro, etc aesthetics)

I also don’t want to burn myself soo... I’d like to replace my old Asus K55V with this new laptop (2013-2014, i7, 256HDD, 2GB NVIDIA, 8GB ram), it would be nice if the new one would be better than my old one of course

Thanks.

Will offer another suggestion:

Check with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University.

They or the University may have a program available for students to purchase laptops and software. Hopefully with some discounts or credit terms favorable to you..

No harm in asking.
