Is this laptop right for me?


Aug 11, 2016
I’ll start with the questions first, and the post the laptop on sale that I’ve found.

1. What is your budget? -$1000, though I’d rather stay in the $6-700 range or even cheaper.

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?- At least 15”

3. What screen resolution do you want? - At least 1080p

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? - Have a desktop, but I don’t need an ultra lightweight portable laptop.

5. How much battery life do you need? - At least 5hrs? Have not considered this to much, probably a con I can live with as long as battery life is not atrocious.

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)? - Yes, definitely. Though my desktop and Xbox will be my main gaming consoles. PUBG on low setting would be ideal, but I’m ok spending less and having PUBG be not playable on 1 of 3 devices.

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) - Stock Trading, Research, Multitasking, and Movies possibly.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?- I’d prefer no HDD. I would rather a 256+Gb SSD and upgrade what I need later.

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.- Newegg, Out if state-no tax. Wherever the best deal is.

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop? - If I’m going with a $1000 laptop, I want it to last a while. But I would be content with a budget laptop and replacing it in a couple of years.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ? - Not necessary.

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. - As long as there is a warranty, and the product itself is well reviewed, brand is not a concern for me.

13. What country do you live in?
- United States
14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.

Link to the laptop I’ve been considering

It’s a bit pricey to what I want to spend....but a 4k screen and 32gb Ram is quite impressive. I know for both it’s a little overkill at the moment but it still seems like a great deal regardless. Anyone have anything bad to say about this laptop? Or can suggest me something else?

That’s what I’ve been noticing. Anytime I look for that model, even searching with 980M in the name, I always get their more new and way more expensive GTX 1070 version. I was a little concerned with this laptop when I heard it was their first one made.
