Hi all, I have been doing research to replace my heavy 5 year old laptop but I really could not find any laptop that has specs that I'm satisfied with.

Greatly appreciate your help to find one that is close or the next best!! Price is not an issue.
Thank you so much

Specs in order of priority:
1) Battery: around 6hrs doing light work (surf web, using MC Office)
2) CPU: Intel 8th Gen
3) Weight & form factor: Less than 2kg, portable (max 2.4kg)
4) Resolution: 4k (1080p if no choice)
5) Screen size: 14" (ideal) or 15"
6) GPU: at least Nvidia Max Q 1060 (light gaming and CAD)
7) RAM: 16GB (at least)
8) Storage: 500GB SSD (at least)
9) Brand: no preference

Hi. Thanks for the reply!!! I do understand the power requirements to run a 1060 and thus a very short battery life if gaming.

However, I believe that for normal web surfing the dedicated GPU can be disabled to save power (Nvidia Optimum). The Intel GPU can be used instead for longer battery life.

Surely by running the integrated GPU only, a 6hr battery life is possible?
