I'm about to start college soon and I'm looking for a decent laptop to help me out. I'm a computer engineer and do intend on playing video games(probably not too intensive, fortnite stuff like that) and I have no idea where to start on finding a decent laptop. My budget is around 600~
Your budget is just at the limit of anything really "good", you will have some compromises unless you go up a few 100. No SSD but faster CPU, slower video card but an SSD, etc... At closer to $800 you can have a better overall system.
