I move around alot and so I want a laptop that I can take on the road and use at home to play games (not neccesary though, seeing as I have Xbox One X and PS4), watch youtube, netflix, listen to music etc. and also be able to write longer essays and stuff from college. My last laptop was a 17" gaming laptop bought in 2015 (Lenovo y70-70) and while it was great to use at home I was getting tired of taking it to college (1+ hour trip each way every day on the bus) because it weight 3.4 kg.

I'm from Norway and most computers are expensive here, but on Monday one store will have some great deals:

Which one would you buy? as a student money is also a factor, so I don't want to go for the most expensive just because it cost more if it's not that much better than the rest (I was thinking about Huawei Matebook X pro, but it's just a bit to expensive :(
