I need a new computer and one that is portable to replace my desktop.

I firstly looked at the Acer 300 Helios which I really liked for the price/performance but after some discussion about it on a discord server, I got pushed away from that ideia and someone suggested me to get a barebone laptop in a local shop (didn't have any ideia that the shop and these laptops existed).

After looking at what they got, I really liked one of the laptops and I'm here to ask you what's your opinion about it and your experience with these barebone laptops.
Sorry for it being in Portuguese but I think you can understand the basics.

I want a laptop for school and work so I need more CPU but also want a GPU to casually play games so I think this is a good combo. Just affraid of the quality or these laptops since I never used one.

Thanks

I can get the OS by myself, I even preferr that it doesn't come with one.

256GB is enough to start and I have some drives that can put into it so no problem with space.

For the prices I saw, this is the cheapest one I could get.

Per example, if I go to another shop and filter the same specs, this is what I get.

It costs 150-200€ more though.

So, is that barebone laptop a good choice for performance and quality for the price? I'm really low on my budget so I need it to be cheap.

PS: I'll leave the original laptop configurator here so you can see it is indeed a barebone laptop. The first link is a promotion where the shop made their config and cut the price a bit.
