Alright, so I'm in need of a laptop for school and gaming. And I'm wondering if I can run Skyrim with the following mods: The City Overhaul, Vivid Weathers, Quick Loot, Wet And Cold, Footprints, Open Cites, Relationship Dialogue Overhaul and a few other mods. But here's the problem I live in New Zealand and the laptops and devices are quite pricey and I need one in between $700 - $1100 nzd and nothing above 15.6". This is the laptop I think would work for playing Skyrim: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-Gaming-Laptop-i5577-7359BLK-PUS/dp/B06XVQF486/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1516000649&sr=1-1&keywords=dell%2B7567&refinements=p_n_feature_four_browse-bin%3A2289792011&th=1#customerReviews

1100 NZD basically converts to $800 USD.

The laptop you linked to costs $889 USD. However, if it update the "ship to" option to New Zealand there is an additional $196 USD charge for shipping and import taxes. That brings the total to $1,085 USD or 1,490 NZD.


The least expensive laptop on Amazon with a decent dedicated GPU is the following 15.6" Acer laptop with a quad core i5-8250u CPU (low power consumption) and nVidia mx150 for $599 USD. Selecting New Zealand as the "ship to" destination tacks on $145 USD for shipping and import tax. The brings the total to $744 USD or 1,022 NZD.

Whether that is good enough to play Skyrim with the mods you want to use... I don't know. But if you max budget is 1,100 NZD, then you basically have no other option. As I stated, this is the least expensive laptop with a decent dedicated GPU. Click the link below to see some benchmarks for the mx150.
