I've come to notice that I've made almost a dozen of these threads over the years but new tech comes out and everything changes... again and again :??: I need a laptop that won't break my spine and someone I can run 3DS max and battlefield 1 on. I was thinking pascal. Like a gtx 1060 or something. Or maybe a 1070 if I can swing it! Any suggestions? My dad keeps saying to wait for dad's and grads sales near June. The deals can't be that good right? Here's some info.

1. What is your budget? 1500, will spend a little extra for quality

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering? Any size really. I just need it big enough for animation but not too heavy

3. What screen resolution do you want? 1080P or 1440P 4K on a laptop is absurd

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

5. How much battery life do you need?
6 hours tops

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'm not the best at gaming laptops, but I could give you a recommendation for specs:
CPU=i5-7400 (or an i5-6400 if you're on a budget)
GPU=GTX 1060
I would either go for an MSI or an Omen. Omen's are quite slim, and so are MSI laptops, so I think you should consider them.
The CPU and GPU I've selected are very good and can run BF1 well (on medium with 70FPS+ and never going below) even if you get the i5-6400.
Also, seeing as you're getting a gaming laptop, I recommend a 17" screen as you'll feel more comfortable with a good sized screen. A 15.6" screen with BF1 running on it just doesn't feel right in my opinion but it's just a matter of preference so you could go for a 15.6" screen if you want to.

Hope this helps! :)

What sort of website do you want to buy your laptop from? It can either be a pre built or a customised one, I'll find you one. Link me a website or just tell me one so that I can find you a good laptop for your budget.

An i5 would still run it at 1080p medium at 60FPS+ on a i5-7400 CPU. An i7 for BF1 would be for 1440p gaming at 144Hz at ultra settings. I doubt he'll find a GPU and CPU that can run BF1 on ultra at 1440p at 1300 dollars.

What? Core i5 runs 1440p. Ultra detail settings are tied to the graphics chipset.

An i5 would be sufficient for just gaming but for what I'm doing which includes 3DS max stuff and video rendering I'm gonna need an i7.
The website doesn't really matter, just a site which doesn't (excuse my French) bitch and complain when you try to get your money back for something. *Cough* Newegg *cough*

Isn't the 1050 ti a little slow nowadays? How about like a 3gb gtx 1060 or something? I did see the msi gp62mvr with a skylake i7 for 1000 aswell
