I'm an Biomedical Engineering student and I need a new laptop. Right now I have the HP Spectre but there's a terrifying metallic noise coming from the interior, which I think is a design flaw. It sounds like the fan scraping on a component.

Im now looking at the Dell XPS 13 and Asus Zenbook UX303. I game often as well so I would prefer something that's portable while also delivering on power- again where the Spectre fell short.

Which do you think would be the better choice?

My budget: around $1500
Games I play: Overwatch, mostly FPS. A dedicated GPU would be ideal.
I'd want a portable laptop that has a good frame, the Spectre's carbon fiber was amazing.
I'd want a 13"
It needs to handle coding C++.
I wouldn't mind a shorter battery life.
Storage: around 512GB SSD - 1TB Hard drive
Ideally, I'd like to have the laptop for the next three years.

1| You should go through this thread and follow up this thread with the necessary information.

2| When you speak of gaming, you should mention the sort of titles you game on.

3| Depending on your budget, you could look at the EVGA SC15(when it comes out later this year).

I'd go for the XPS13 simply due to it's design.
