Hello forums, I am looking for an new laptop and would like your suggestions on what I should get. My current laptop is an ASUS G53SW-A1 that I got a few years ago when I gamed all the time, but now I am moving on from a gaming book and need a more practical laptop that I can carry around and use for schoolwork; not to mention the g53 is starting to break. As indicated in my thread title I have a budget of around 1,000 (going a bit over is fine if the laptop is THAT much of an upgrade) but if I would like to get the best possible price-performance out of it. I would prefer it to be under 4.5 lbs and have a screen size of at least 14" but would prefer a 15.6" screen. Touch screen is optional but it would be nice and an SSD size of at least 128GB would be optimal, anything less would be too little. For the processor, I would like at least an i5 as I don't expect an i7 in this price range. If you have recommendations please post links and why you recommend it if possible, it would be much appreciated! Thanks for your time.
