Hi everyone.

I need help with looking for a good mobile computer to use as an engineering student, I've been doing a little research but I'm still new to all this and would like personal opinions and experiences. I've come across workstations but my only concern with those is will I still be able to get a good gaming experience from them. I know workstations and gaming PC's are different but I just need the computer for casual gaming here and there, mostly like the sims and first shooter types. So far I've come across the Lenovo thinkpad 550s or 541. The Asus zen book and Lenovo y50. Is there any other computers I might've missed and other information about what I should look for would be helpful. My budget is less than 1500$

What kind of engineering? do they need specific programs/apps? mobile workstation/gaming laptop use different set of gpu. usually it either good at engineering stuff or good at gaming.

Look at HP. and when do you need it?
