Hello,
I am looking for an upgrade from my Dell Precision M2800 w/ 16GB of RAM, an i7-4710MQ, a Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB ssd, Windows 10, etc.

I want to have the following
i7 - 10th generation (any model, would prefer a k) (can roll with a 9th gen model if necessary) (can go with a Ryzen 7 if necessary and of comparable speed)
any discrete graphics card (would prefer Nvidia but am fine with Radeon)
an SSD (I can upgrade if needed)
16 GB RAM (ddr4 preferred) (must, but I can upgrade if necessary)
15.6 inch display (am in HS debate - this is sort of a must)
1080p panel that NOT an HP TN display - I care about display quality, but am not a snob
NEEEEEED good cooling - really need it (If thats not available in my price range i understand)
would like to have something with 3 wi-fi antennas but I realize that's a rarity these days and probably won't happen

I am fine with upgrading parts on a laptop, I am currently running with replaced RAM, Wi-Fi card, and SSD.

Please help find a laptop with these specs or a lower specced laptop that I can upgrade. I would prefer a delivered cost under USD 1000 but anything lower than 1200 is fine.

(wouldn't really consider myself a power user but linux was my primary os over the summer if that helps - that's why I would prefer something that has a dual-boot friendly BIOS, IDK which companies don't have that but I've heard bad things about HP on that front)
