This computer will be used for school. I actually don't know how much I will take it to class to take notes. I did all of last year without a laptop and took paper notes and was fine. This will be for doing hw and playing games between classes in the dorm. Also, I do a lot of cad work and this would be nice to be able to take the laptop into my shop when I am building stuff. I really want an ssd. I was considering the ASUS ROG STRIX GL702, but from watching videos it seems like it gets hot. My main priorities are a big screen, ssd, the ability to play games on high, temperature, and mobility. I will be taking the laptop to and from my car everyday. I'd also like decent battery use for general web browsing and doing stuff like watching netflix. It will most likely be plugged in when playing games.
