Im looking for a cheapish entry level gaming laptop with several quite specific features: Well built (hopefully an aluminum frame), a good screen (hopefully 144hz) and the ability to upgrade it in the future, either by changing the gpu or using an external one (I think that means it needs thunderbolt 3 right?).
Can anyone help, do such machines even exist?
Thanks in advance...
you actually want a nice tower pc with proper cooling and proper gaming hardware if gaming is what you want to go hard core at. get a nice slim notebook like a mac or something nice for your portable needs.. it sounds like you have a good budget so that's what I would do.
Laptops that will allow you to upgrade GPU (MXM format "cards") typically have a starting price of $1,400+ which is not considered entry level. Laptops with a Thunderbolt 3 port that allows you to connect to an external GPU dock (probably starting at around $200 without the GPU) generally costs at least $1,100 from what I've seen.
