Finding a suitable laptop


Oct 10, 2016
Hi tomshardware,

I need a new laptop for school but I am not sure which laptop, or brand, is best suitable for me.
I'm coming from a Macbook AIr with low rate specs from 2013. It has worked for me nicely, but I have only used it for surfing the web, photo's and music.
I'm going to be using the laptop much more than usual - designing, presentations and overall much more. If possible, some gaming too.
Battery life or size does not matter.
My budget is about 1200$

Thank you!
