Hello everyone,

for quite some time I've been browsing around to choose a laptop but I just can't find the combo I'm looking for at this price tag. I need three things. A good matte IPS panel (not 4k) with a decent color accuracy (highly preferably a 17 inch model), a fairly well built body (and chassis) with a comfortable keyboard for both gaming and typing and last but not least, a reliable cooling system so that the unit doesn't fry in 2 years. I need it for content creation (video editing) and casual gaming (low demanding titles like League of legends, Path of exile, CS:GO). So far I've liked couple of laptops but they all come up short with something.

Lenovo Legion Y530 - poor screen (around 50 % sRGB)
Acer Helios 300 - ugly with way too many complaints of running hot
couple of MSI models - none covering my triple combo
Asus ROG GL503VD - now this one comes closest since the screen is a win but it doesn't have a 17.3 model and it runs a 1050 at this price tag ( I can live with the 1050 but I prefer to find a 17 inch laptop)

The specs I'm looking for are:

GPU: 1050ti, but I would settle for a 1050 if I have all the reasons to.
CPU: here I'm looking for an 8th gen Intel core 7
Upgradables don't really matter, as long as I have access and can actually upgrade them (DDR4, HDD, SSD)



Things I don't care for:

A comfortable trackpad
Slim design
Light design
Wild RGB keybord
Quiet fans
Certain material preferences
Thunderbolt port
Amazing battery life

At that price, it would be difficult to find something with a 'good' display.
How you should prioritise:
1) Processor - for your editing purposes at least i7-8750H
2) GPU - For the titles you suggested, 1050 would be sufficient
3) Cooling - It would be very difficult to actually fry a 105/1050ti. The problem is with 1060 and above.
4) Display size and quality - At the 1000euro price bracket, very difficult to find a 'good' display in a gaming laptop. Buy the cheapest that meets the above 3 conditions (you can probably get them for under 1000euro), then buy a monitor. It will help so much for your editing work

But its not truly impossible to find one with a good screen. The Asus i mentioned has a pretty decent panel. Have in mind that I do have a good external monitor, so I m not looking for a high tier screen, I just want good color representation and a pleasant experience looking at it, not a professional one. Anything above 80 sRGB does it for me. I know it's not all there is for it to be a good screen but that's what I m looking for.
Edit: I'm not saying that a 1050 will fry, I just like machines that run cool, or at least reasonably cool.
