ey Guys thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your time.

I started my university in September and studying Computer Science. I am looking to purchase a Laptop but not sure what exactly to look for. If you could point out some laptops which are great for gaming and programming would be great. bare in mind I will be travelling with it every day so the lighter it is the perfect it gets. My maximum budget it £1500.

Thanks in Advance.

EDIT
Forget been light weigh.
Looking for i7 and 16gb ram.

Well, by their nature, gaming laptops are not going to be light. There are so many good ones for programming, light and nice and fast. my son took his xbox one x for gaming and his slender instant booting laptop for schoolwork.

check out this Lenovo for 900 USD
